Discover 2019

Developing Global Leaders

Discover is an all-expenses paid 3 day event that will give you the chance to work alongside McKinsey consultants and professional coaches in a number of skill building workshops. You will experience the way we define and solve a business case study as well as develop core interpersonal skills.


Immerse yourself

Immerse yourself

This programme has been designed for first and penultimate year undergraduate students in the UK and Ireland to find out more about management consulting in a risk-free environment. You will be introduced to McKinsey’s problem solving approach and will learn the tools and methodologies we use to solve our client’s toughest challenges.

You will get to work on an interactive case study and take part in skills sessions, like “telling and selling your story.” Discover is a great way to grow your network and meet like-minded students!

Discover will run from 10 – 12 April 2019 at a venue outside of London.

Why attend discover?

Business Analyst, London


"I really enjoyed meeting the other participants at Discover, as it really highlighted the diversity of McKinsey. Also, working through the case study in a group was a great insight into the problem solving approach McKinsey uses which really helped me understand what life as a consultant would involve. Previously, I had been sceptical of consulting as a career choice but the opportunity to meet consultants at McKinsey changed my mind. Discover helped me decide that consulting was a career for me and an area that would provide great opportunities and support, early in my career path."

“What I took away from the Discover programme was a sense of the culture within the firm. Getting the opportunity to spend a couple of days working with McKinsey consultants gave me a real insight into how McKinsey operates and the kind of work that analysts do on a daily basis. We were given practical classes on how to approach a case from start to finish and this was complemented with sessions on how present your findings to a client. All in all, I left Discover with a clear understanding of what a job in consultancy entails, the values that drive the work that McKinsey does and some new friends. The Discover programme permitted me to feel confident in applying for the internship role within the firm.”
