Consultants at McKinsey play an active role in many aspects of client engagements, including fact gathering, analysis, client communications, making recommendations, and implementation. Undergraduates typically join us as business analysts or fellows as an integral part of our client service teams.

Some stay for 2 or 3 years before attending graduate school or gaining further work experience, others stay on and move directly into a post-graduate school role. In the Business Analyst or Fellow role you will collaborate with senior consultants, client managers, and executives on every part of the consulting process, from brainstorming ideas to working side-by-side with clients to implement team recommendations.

You can join McKinsey with or without an alignment to a specific type of work. Generalists are not aligned to any specific function or industry and typically work on a variety of projects. Practice consultants join a functional group (such as digital, marketing and sales, operations, etc.) and dedicate most of their work to this focus.

In a tech role at McKinsey, including Software Engineers, Data Engineers and Data Scientists, you’ll be part of an agile, close-knit team dedicated to helping you and your team perform at your best.  Working with McKinsey’s clients -- some of the world’s most innovative and influential organizations -- you’ll develop our analytics, data, and management products, collaborating with consultants to apply them in our client work.
