There are more than 24,000 McKinsey alumni representing virtually every business sector in more than 100 countries. They lead large organizations–more than 230 are CEOs of companies with more than $1 billion in annual revenue. They create new organizations–more than one in five have started a business–and they head major educational institutions, leading nonprofits, and government agencies worldwide.
A growing network
People build relationships here that last long after they leave. They call on each other for expertise and support. They open doors, make connections, and focus on shared interests and opportunities. McKinsey plays a central role in helping alumni stay in touch with the firm and each other.
Pursue new opportunities
Many of our consultants go on to be leaders in both business and nonbusiness organizations. Many are entrepreneurs. Others head philanthropic foundations, educational institutions, and other organizations in the social sector. And some are in government or pursuing their passion for inventing, filmmaking, or art.
Regardless of where they go, alumni remain connected to McKinsey. They take with them their experiences, their expertise, and–most valuable–their lifetime membership in the McKinsey network. Our alumni team is dedicated to maintaining relationships with our former colleagues. We host reunions, topic-driven discussions, and other get-togethers in most of our offices.
We also foster networks among our alumni who share a common passion. Our McKinsey Alumni for Development, for example, is a group of former consultants who have a shared interest and passion for working with developing nations.
Through our alumni website, colleagues can look each other up, stay in touch with the firm, and find new job opportunities.
