Global Energy and Materials Practice webinar session

Meet our consultants - Get to know our Global Energy and Materials Practice

If you are interested in energy topics, please join us for a webinar session on Thursday, September 8th from 3:00pm-4:00pm PT / 6:00pm-7:00pm ET, to learn more about the impact we are achieving in this space. Jesse Noffsinger, an Engagement Manager from our Seattle office, who focuses on electric power and cleantech topics, will share insights about the work we do within electric power related to distributed energy resources (DERs) - solar, wind, and storage. He will give you first hand insights from our client work in North America.

Please RSVP here
The login details will be sent on the day of the event.

Our Global Energy and Materials (GEM) Practice is the biggest industry practice within McKinsey and consists of 4 industry sectors: Basic Materials, Chemicals & Agriculture, Electric Power & Natural Gas, and Oil & Gas. GEM companies are core to the world's economy and facing challenges such as operating safely and productively, dealing with volatile geopolitics, and managing gigantic capital investments. This creates tremendous opportunity for McKinsey to have real, long-lasting impact within an organization, or even a country or region. Over the last five years, we have completed over 5,000 projects, and today have over a thousand consultants who are working in the energy and materials space across the world.

Opportunities for MBA Candidates

MBA graduates typically join us as associates, working either as generalists or practice consultants, depending on their preference and interests. MBA candidates in-between their first and second year may apply for an associate intern position—this is usually a 10-week internship during the summer.

If you have recently been accepted into a full-time US MBA program, you may be interested in learning more about our Emerging Scholars program.  This is a scholarship and networking opportunity for pre-MBAs at selected full-time programs that typically has a spring application deadline.
