Undergraduate degree candidates
By joining McKinsey, you'll work with interesting colleagues, be part of a fast-growing firm, participate in meaningful work, and strengthen the skills you need to launch your career at McKinsey and beyond.
Undergraduates typically join as business analysts or fellows—an integral part of our client service teams. Some stay for two or three years before going to graduate school or gaining further work experience, others stay and move directly into a post-graduate school role.
In your first two years or more, you’ll work in many industries and functions. You’ll build business knowledge and perhaps find a field you’re inspired to pursue more deeply. You will likely have the opportunity to travel and will definitely work with talented people from different cultures and
backgrounds. We invest heavily in support and training—more than $100 million per year—for all firm members. Programs run the gamut from our proprietary e-learning to office or practice-based sessions to our formal global training curriculum. Coaching and mentorship is an integral part of your development at McKinsey; peers will give you feedback and partners will help you grow and plan the next several years of your career.

Description of Ideal Candidate:
Our undergraduates join us from many backgrounds—there is no single “right” major or course of study. Our people do share some common qualities including excellent academic performance, leadership abilities, and experience working on or off campus. We look for strong problem solvers with potential—we will teach you the rest.
Your MBA program prepares you as a problem solver—developing hypotheses, collecting and analyzing data, drawing conclusions, and making recommendations. You’re intellectually curious, asking and answering questions others don’t, and testing solutions others haven't thought of trying. Your business knowledge can be invaluable in solving client problems.
