Advanced Professional Degree Candidates

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

You will be considered as a UK Advanced Professional Degree Student if you are currently pursuing a PhD, a Post-Doc or if you hold a Marshall, Rhodes, or Gates Scholarship. If you have already graduated and have worked for more than half a year after finishing your PhD, you will be considered as an experienced hire.

Please note that in UK Master students as well as MDs are not considered APD applicants and will be considered for business analyst positions.

Have more questions about your candidacy or the APD application and interview process?

McKinsey & Company Southeast Asia is one of the leading consulting firms in the region. This is true both from the point of view of our size and presence, but much more importantly in terms of client relationships, reputation with business and government leaders, and impact. Over the years we have served more than 80% of Southeast Asia’s top corporations and most of the main “shapers”. 

The opportunity to work on high impact, sometimes even country-shaping engagements, gives you the exposure to top decision makers at a very early stage in your career. Making a real difference at the national level – business, policy or the community is our passion in Southeast Asia. 

The Bangkok office opened in 1997 and is a dynamic growing office with deep, established relationships in the country. The office works with both local Thai and multinational clients across industries, including financial services, telecommunications, consumer industries, energy, and the public sector.

The office is at the forefront of launching McKinsey’s new delivery models and McKinsey Solutions with clients to achieve lasting impact.

I am so glad I kept an open mind about what I could do with my Economics PhD degree and that I chose a career at McKinsey.

Opportunities for Advanced Professional Degree Candidates

Many advanced professional degree candidates join us as an associate or junior associate consultants (positions vary based on office and experience). APD candidates may also consider applying for an associate or business analyst internship position depending on degree or work experience, usually for the summer prior to their penultimate year of their program; timing of internships can vary based on your academic schedule. Please note that the London office does not offer internships to APD students.
