McKinsey & Co webinar opportunities

Posted by on Monday, May 22, 2023 in Announcements, Workshops and Seminars .

Management consulting firm McKinsey & Co has a focused recruiting process for advanced degree candidates, and this May, they are offering two opportunities to learn more before applying:

Academia to Consulting

May 25
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm EST

What is it like to join a global consulting firm if you have a background in academia? Come hear from McKinsey consultants with advanced professional degrees (APD) about their journeys! McKinsey values consultants with PhDs and other graduate-level degrees – they have fantastic research skills, specific domain knowledge, and ways of thinking that are important to our firm and our clients. This will be an interactive Q&A session.

APD Resume Workshop

June 1
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm EST

Our APD Resume Workshop will provide recommendations and guidance for submitting an effective resume or CV.

During this session, our recruiters will walk through how to strengthen your resume/CV ahead of McKinsey’s full-time application deadline. There will be an opportunity to ask questions along the way. This event is completely optional, non-evaluative, and casual. Please note, this session will not be recorded.


Our fill-time associate role deadline is June 15, 2023. APD candidates applying to full-time roles have an anticipated graduation year of 2024.

If you are currently enrolled in school and have one summer left (Summer 2024, anticipated graduation of 2025), the deadline for our associate intern role will be Fall 2023. Those applying to intern roles will have an anticipated graduation year of 2025.

Have more questions about your candidacy or the APD application and interview process?


APDs typically join us as associates, working either as generalists or expert consultants if they have a specific function or industry that they would like to focus on such as digital, analytics, and operations. We also have industry and technology roles such as data scientists, software engineers, product managers, data engineers, designers, agile coaches, or digital marketers. APD candidates may also consider applying for a summer associate internship position or the MD fellowship program depending on their degree. Eligibility for the internship and MD fellowship program depends on your anticipated graduation or program completion date.
