Preparing your application

The first step to joining McKinsey Sweden—Gothenburg or Stockholm— whether you are a student or an experienced professional, is to prepare your application, which should include the following:

  • your language-fluency level in English and Swedish (and any other language you know)
  • your university and high school transcripts
  • a cover letter explaining your interest in consulting, and in McKinsey in particular; if you are not located in Sweden, please note why you wish to relocate
