PhD and Postdoc School recruiting

Useful APD information

We encourage you to explore this site for more information about our firm and the recruiting process. We hope to meet you on campus to continue the discussion about why we think McKinsey could be the right career choice for you.

If you are pursuing a masters degree and you earned an undergraduate degree fewer than four years ago, you will be considered for a business analyst position. If you hold a bachelor’s degree and have at least four years of work experience or completed or expect to complete your master's program four years from the time you received your bachelor's degree, you will join as an associate.
