An interview is an opportunity to find out whether McKinsey is the right choice for you. You will get an understanding of what consultants do and the kinds of problems we solve.
In the first round of interviews, you will have two 1-hour interviews with McKinsey consultants, who will answer your questions, share their perspectives, and test your team skills and ability to solve problems, based on case studies. These case studies are likely to be wide-ranging discussions that assess your approach to situations you may not be prepared for, your problem-solving skills, your intellectual curiosity, and your insight.
During interviews you will have ample opportunity to ask questions about consulting and working at McKinsey. After the first round of interviews, you may be invited to another round where you can speak with McKinsey partners. At the end of each round of interviews, you will receive feedback from the interviewers and information on next steps.
