CEMS International Internship

McKinsey & Company encourages all current CEMS students to take the opportunity and apply for an International Internship with McKinsey. The key feature of this internship—which is exclusively designed for and available only to CEMS students—is that international staffing is guaranteed. Therefore the internship fulfils the CEMS criteria for an 'international internship' and will help you to complete your CEMS curriculum.

How to apply

McKinsey & Company's International Internship gives you the chance to test your capabilities and knowledge during a McKinsey internship with international placement in Spring/Summer 2018. The application deadline for internships in 2017 has already passed, but we will open the application for internships in 2018 in autumn 2017. Please look out for emails via career services and regularly check this website for further details.

Which documents should you prepare?

  • CV – should include detailed academic performance, role description of summer jobs and internships, and information on involvement in extracurricular activities
  • Cover letter – please include a subject line referring to ‘CEMS International Internship’
  • Transcripts from university/high school including grades, if applicable please also attach certificates/reference letters from internships

What else is important for your application?

  • When asked for most recent school in the application, please make sure to select your university and mention the CEMS programme.
  • Select your offices of interest. Locations should be selected based on where you see yourself in the medium-term, should you receive an offer after your internship. Locations you choose should also reflect where you have a strong link (e.g., local language, work experience, education, family).
  • Please note that fluency in the local language is required for all offices. Applicants that do not speak the local language fluently cannot be considered for an internship position with that local office.
