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?

Read our APD Tips here or contact us by email at UKAPD_recruiting@mckinsey.com.

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.
