See the world

Expand your horizons by working with an engagement in a foreign country, a transfer to another office, or a “secondment” outside McKinsey.

Mobility is a powerful source of professional and personal renewal. Shifting to another part of the world is an opportunity to combine professional benefit with personal growth. It broadens your horizons, grows your internal and external networks, bolsters cross-cultural problem-solving and people skills, and opens new vistas of travel options. Taken together, you can only imagine the adventure and excitement these opportunities offer.

Our Secondment Leadership Program provides you with the opportunity to pursue unique, high-quality, and high-impact work directly within selected private and social-sector organizations for a period of 6 to 12 months. We recognize that as diverse as McKinsey is, there are opportunities for growth than can only happen outside; far from standing in your way, we seek to facilitate these experiences.

In this short video, you will hear stories of our people who have traveled the world, including Jukka—who, in an update to his tale, just moved to Kazakhstan to open McKinsey’s newest, 105th office.
