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.

If you are pursuing a master's degree and you earned an undergraduate degree fewer than four years ago, you will be considered for a business analyst position. If you hold a bachelor's degree and have at least four years of work experience or completed or expect to complete your master's program four years from the time you received your bachelor's degree, you will join as an associate. The associate application deadline is July 12, 2020.

Advanced Professional Degree candidates are currently finishing programs in December 2020 or 2021. APD candidates are PhDs, Postdocs, JDs and non-MBA Masters students finishing programs in 2021 (with at least 4 years in between the completion of your undergrad degree and graduate degree) and medical students, interns, residents or fellows finishing programs in 2021 or 2022.

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

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.

Our roles include generalist consulting; practice consulting, focused on a specific function or industry (e.g., digital, implementation, operations); and technical roles within McKinsey’s product and solution development team (e.g., data science, data engineering, software engineering, and digital strategy & delivery).
