Joining Bain

Bain & CompanySo it is official now – I will join Bain & Company as a Consultant in their Munich office next year. It is a great relief to know that my job search is over.

Why did I chose to go into consulting? Mainly for two reasons – lifelong learning and continuous challenge. No other job I found offered a steeper learning curve and a more demanding environment. In that sense, Bain will be the continuation of my MBA program here at INSEAD.

In addition, the network I will join at Bain is phenomenal – its alumni base includes leaders as diverse as Kevin Rollins, CEO of Dell, and Meg Whitman, CEO of eBay, to Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity, and Mitt Romney, Governor of Massachusetts.

  8. Congratulations. Bain indeed is the only “Sane” top 4. Your comment about the CEOs is like saying “I joined GE because of Jack Welch” :).
