Global Connect

Developing markets. Developing you.

We invite you to join us in Washington, DC on September 21 to 23 for a one-of-a-kind weekend to learn how McKinsey works and solves problems in fast-growing economies around the world.

Are you interested in Asia, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, or the Middle East? Apply to Global Connect by June 15.

We will fly participants to Washington, DC for three days to learn how we work with the private, public, and social sectors in fast-growing economies. You’ll participate directly with our teams to solve a real-life problem—and, in the process, learn about who we are and what we do.

This opportunity is open to people who are from—or passionate about—fast-growing global markets. They must either be completing (or have completed) their 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

McKinsey will cover the cost of accommodations and travel to Washington, DC from locations in North America.
