The interview process consists of two rounds of interviews. Each interview lasts around 40-50 minutes and consists of three parts:
- we will focus on your experience and ask you to talk about yourself, your achievements, and the skills you have developed. We will ask you to describe important events in your life and explain the steps you took to achieve successful outcomes.
- we will you to discuss a case study. This will be a wide-ranging two-way discussion, and you will be assessed on your approach to solving the problem more than on the solution you propose. No specific business knowledge is necessary.
- we will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about McKinsey or the Middle East offices.
After receiving feedback, and in the case of a successful outcome, you’ll be invited to attend a second round of two to three interviews.
This process applies to full-time and intern positions. For some specialized roles the process might be different.After reviewing your application, we will let you know if you progressed to the next step. If we invite you to meet us, we will ask you to complete the McKinsey Problem-Solving Game first.
This assessment helps us assess your problem-solving skills and understand how well you would perform as a McKinsey employee. The test does not require a specific academic or professional background or preparation.
