An organization’s most important asset is its people. Organizations that invest in opportunities and resources for skill building can develop a resilient workforce that is able to weather uncertainty and adeptly chart a path to the next normal. McKinsey Academy is dedicated to helping organizations build capabilities at scale to drive sustainable and inclusive growth. We enable strong leadership teams, enterprise-wide transformations, and performance improvements in functional topics such as digital, operations, sales, and sustainability. Our programs unlock potential across all levels of an organization, from the executive team to middle management to frontline employees.

What we do

As the world rapidly evolves, so must the skills and competencies of an organization. Through McKinsey Academy, we teach and reinforce the skills and behaviors that individuals and organizations need to excel. We help build capabilities and change day-to-day mindsets and behaviors through a broad range of techniques, including digital and virtual programs, expert and peer coaching, on-the-job observation and feedback, reflection exercises, and simulations. This behavioral science–based approach helps individuals acquire new mindsets and skills, apply them in the context of real work, and build new habits that drive and sustain lasting change.
