Careers in Malaysia

Working at McKinsey Malaysia

McKinsey supports major organisations in every sector of Malaysia's economy to drive growth, develop future leaders, and build a prosperous Malaysia.

Creating impact—in Malaysia and across the region

McKinsey is the leading consulting firm in Malaysia and across the world, serving major companies, government agencies, and public-sector organisations on their most important challenges. Our clients in Malaysia include 80 percent of the country’s largest companies, in sectors ranging from financial services to energy to high tech.

Our consultants have participated in a wide range of transformative client work that has had lasting impact on Malaysian society. McKinsey has been the lead advisor on Malaysia’s most important national programmes over the past 20 years.

A career with McKinsey is an opportunity to work directly with senior leaders—in Malaysia, across Southeast Asia, and beyond—to shape growth and change in major enterprises and public organisations, and for entire countries.

Community involvement

McKinsey is deeply committed to social impact and national development.

One key priority is the development of future leaders. In Malaysia we launched the Youth Leadership Academy in 2009; this cutting-edge, 12-week development programme has already helped more than 200 undergraduates from leading Malaysian universities build leadership skills to inspire others and drive change.

Our people and culture

Our Malaysia office is home to more than 75 colleagues from a variety of backgrounds—not only business and economics but also engineering, medicine, and the arts and humanities.

What brings us together is the warm, connected culture of McKinsey Malaysia—which many colleagues refer to as a family. At our monthly “In Office Fridays,” our entire office comes together to connect and socialise. We organise a wide range of social and sporting events, artistic projects, and off-site activities—including Easter dinner with families, Halloween, and Chinese New Year celebrations.

Developing future leaders in Southeast Asia

– Our firm is sometimes described as “a leadership factory” because so many McKinsey alumni go on to play leadership roles elsewhere.... What’s less widely known is that in many countries we also help create next-generation leaders by supporting mentorship and development programs for young people.
