Careers in Sweden

Are you my next team member?

Experience firsthand what it is like to work as a member of a consulting team.

Join McKinsey Sweden as an intern in our Stockholm or Gothenburg locations, and work alongside consultants on actual business challenges and client projects. In Sweden, our internship program is designed to provide several different experiences over an 8-10 week period. As an active team member, you will be responsible for numerous contributions, such as gathering and analyzing information, preparing client presentations, helping solve critical issues, meeting client teams, preparing proposals and communications, and presenting findings to senior client executives. Experienced consultants will provide guidance and coaching and give you a sense of McKinsey’s people, values, and spirit.

How and when to apply

To apply for an intern position, please click here. If you are a first-time applicant, you will be asked to create an account to use when submitting your application online.

You can apply for an internship all year round, no deadline. We process applications on an ongoing basis, and you can expect to receive a decision within two weeks. Interviews will be based on your availability and preference. We offer multiple start dates throughout the year, and interns typically sign up for internships during their fall and spring semester. Fluency in Swedish is required. We accept applications from students who have completed 1 year of university studies and have at least 1 year left until graduation. Please apply with your CV, full grades from your university studies and high school and cover letter.

What we look for

We are, always, looking for passionate people—share your passion with us, and let us know what excites you about an internship at McKinsey.

Our internship program is meant for students who have a strong interest in joining McKinsey Sweden and pursuing a long-term career with us. We consider four dimensions when evaluating potential new colleagues: problem-solving skills, personal impact, leadership abilities, and entrepreneurial drive.

You can learn more about these dimensions on our global careers site.

Our interview process

Our internship interview process has the same set up as our full-time interview process. During all interview rounds, you will run through a problem-solving case as well as have conversations about your personal experiences with focus on our four dimensions.

If selected, you will initially be invited to two 1-hour interviews with consultants from our office. If successful, you will be invited back for a final round of interviews, comprising two additional 1-hour interviews with partners from our office.

In between each interview, you will receive helpful feedback, and we offer all candidates the opportunity to meet with an experienced coach to help you prepare.

Detailed information about our interview process can be found on our global careers site.

We support internships abroad

Our internships are always personalized to fit the intern’s interests and needs. If your education requires you to do all or part of your internship abroad, please let your recruiter know, and we are happy to work with you to accommodate this.

What to expect on day 1

When you join as an intern, it is important to us that your internship experience is representative of a full-time career at McKinsey. You will have the same introduction and resources available to you as our full-time employees, including personalized conversations to ensure you are assigned studies that are a good fit for you and your interests, mentorship through our “buddy system,” and a cohort of new hires to help jump-start your integration into the office.

What happens after the internship

We want you to walk away from your internship with as positive an experience as possible, having learned many new skills and gained exposure to the impactful client work we do. Our hope is that you will return after graduation and join us on a full-time basis.
