We are recruiting from IESE because experience has shown that IESE students arrive with a very solid set of skills that enable them to be successful McKinsey consultants. They have a pragmatic approach of tackling problems in a structured way, which is very important when working with our McKinsey clients and teams. Their values align with ours; their desire to make a difference, help others, learn and grow, and stand up for what they believe in makes them excellent additions to our community.

Opportunities for MBA Candidates

MBA graduates typically join us as associates, working either as generalists or practice consultants, depending on their preference and interests. MBA candidates in-between their first and second year may apply for an associate intern position—this is usually a 10-week internship during the summer.

If you have recently been accepted into a full-time US MBA program, you may be interested in learning more about our Emerging Scholars program. This is a scholarship and networking opportunity for pre-MBAs at selected full-time programs that typically has a spring application deadline.
