Take control and shape your career

Your path to digital mastery starts today!

Programme Overview

RISE participants will choose one of three specialised digital pathways – Business & Data Analytics, Digital Sales & Marketing or Digital Transformation & Change Management – depending on preference and background experience. Common across all three pathways are a set of core business and digital foundational courses that aim to provide a holistic skillset grounded in real life industry context and experience. Unlike traditional university courses and corporate trainings, this programme takes a differentiated, application-based approach to learning. Expect project-based teachings guided by industry practitioners from a pragmatic, hands-on perspective.

Placement Assistance

Successful graduates of the RISE programme will receive Digital BCG Academy Certification and be offered placement opportunities across BCG’s client and partner ecosystem.

Introducing Tracks

RISE 2.0 participants have the unique opportunity to choose between 2 tracks depending on their current work commitments and weekly availability. Note that both tracks contain the exact same course materials and learning outcomes

Unique Project-Based Learning

Our pedagogical approach to this programme is very unique. RISE is not training for the sake of training, but to equip you with the skills and a portfolio of experiences to be able to drive real world impact.
