Consider McKinsey as the next step in your journey. McKinsey brings together an outstanding group of colleagues from a wide variety of backgrounds to help leading organizations tackle their most complex challenges. We have long been a leader in strategic management and our work in data science, software engineering, machine learning, and change management is growing rapidly. Over 80% of our consultants have advanced degrees in fields outside of business, and as our firm continues to grow and evolve, we are looking for more people like you –experts in their fields –to join our community. We hope you will consider starting your journey with us, so you can be at your best at McKinsey.

Please note that this event is for Advanced Professional Degree campus candidates (i.e. JDs, PhDs, Post-docs, non-MBA Master’s candidates, medical students, interns, residents, and fellows) graduating in 2021 or 2022 who are interested in learning about opportunities with McKinsey & Company. 

If you are pursuing a master’s degree and you earned an undergraduate degree fewer than four years ago, you will be considered for a business analyst position. If you hold a bachelor’s degree and have at least four years of work experience or completed/expect to complete your master’s program four years from the time you received your bachelor’s degree, you will join as an associate, via the APD process.
