Global Connect

Developing markets. Developing you.

Thank you for your interest in Global Connect. We are no longer accepting applications for this year’s event which will be held on September 21 to 23 in Washington, DC.

Global Connect is just one of our many worldwide programs aimed at helping candidates get to know McKinsey better. Stay tuned to our Real Life at McKinsey Facebook page, as well as our Careers blog, for more information regarding upcoming events and initiatives.

To apply for a full-time role in one of our emerging markets offices, please visit our careers page. We hope to get the chance to meet you at another one of our forums or get to know you through your application.

Global Connect is open to people who are from—or passionate about—fast-growing global markets. You must either be completing (or have completed) your JD, Master’s*, MBA, or PhD degree in North America; filling a postdoctoral post in North America; pursuing a medical degree, internship, or residency in North America; or currently working as a professional in North America (with at least two years of work experience).

*Non-MBA Master’s students must have completed their undergraduate degree four or more years prior to completing their Master’s degree

During this one of a kind weekend, we fly participants to Washington, DC for three days to learn how we work with the private, public, and social sectors in fast-growing economies. Those selected to attend will work directly with our teams to solve a real-life problem—and, in the process, learn about who we are and what we do.

Global Connect

The weekend will be filled with activities:

  • Crack a real-life case—take a behind-the-scenes tour of a real problem we have tackled to learn more about what our teams do and how we do it.
  • Build your own McKinsey tool kit—work with our consultants in small teams to sharpen your problem-solving and project-management skills. Learn how we help clients diagnose a problem and organize the approach to solve it—and how you can apply this knowledge in your own work or studies.
  • Meet leaders and experts—from inside and outside McKinsey who work in and help developing economies.
  • Explore Washington, DC.
