ARTHUR D. LITTLE BUSINESS ANALYST OPPORTUNITY

ADL is a European-based strategy consulting firm that re-entered the US market a few years ago that is looked to hire 1-2 more business analysts. Currently, we’ve got a team of around 20 consultants working in TMT, Health Care/Life Sciences, and Food & Beverage.  We have offices in Boston, NYC, and SF, so any of those would be in play. There is interest in candidates that already have experience in consulting to minimize ramp-up time, but other strong internship experience is also valuable. No requirements for major or line of study – just looking for smart, hard-working people that don’t mind exploring an opportunity at a lesser-known consulting firm. We compete internationally with the MBBs of the world, and there’s no reason not to believe that this won’t be the case in the US market within a few years.  You can find the general BA job description here.  Please feel free to contact Sam Leedy directly at leedy.sam@adlittle.com if you're interested.
