Careers in Vietnam

A career at McKinsey Vietnam is an opportunity to join a tight-knit, collaborative office with a startup culture.

Working at McKinsey in Vietnam

McKinsey Vietnam promotes entrepreneurship, where colleagues are encouraged to maximize their opportunities across client service, the office, and the community. We care about your interests, ability to problem-solve, and willingness to collaborate. At McKinsey Vietnam, you will have the opportunity to learn and delve deeper into topics that interest you in a small, tight-knit office with colleagues who value your growth.

Through hands-on training and our world-class professional-development programs, you will be prepared to directly serve clients at leading private and public organizations. While our focus is on supporting local clients and expanding our two offices within Vietnam, our consultants can be staffed globally. They have the unique opportunity to deliver Vietnam expertise throughout Asia and other international markets.

Additionally, we believe in having fun. McKinsey Vietnam is known for karaoke sessions and “In-office Fridays,” when we gather for lunch and discussions. We also place a strong emphasis on our commitment to social impact. Whether through our office recycling and sustainability initiatives or our volunteer work at local orphanages and pediatric hospitals, we believe in being a positive presence in our communities.

Recruiting Focus

We are always seeking exceptional and diverse people. While we focus on hiring Vietnamese-speaking consultants, our recruits are otherwise highly diverse. Some recruits join us after graduation from local and international universities, while others come from industry.

We are particularly interested in hiring experienced professionals with backgrounds in financial services, consumer packaged goods, retail, or digital and have the credentials to join us as junior associates, business analysts, or associates. Regardless of expertise, all McKinsey recruits share a commitment to curiosity, problem solving, personal growth, and above all, client impact.

While diversity and inclusion have always been core to our mission and values, our research on the importance of women in leadership and the economy has accelerated our own efforts to advance gender parity. We actively recruit women at focused recruitment sessions, where we also share information about the various career paths available at McKinsey. Through our global network of McKinsey women, we organize networking events and discussions of gender parity, among other topics throughout the year.

At McKinsey Vietnam, we believe in the power of Vietnamese youth. We recruit graduates from a wide range of Vietnamese and international universities. Students who pursue full-time postgraduate studies are eligible for our Associate Intern Program. In 2016, we also founded the McKinsey Consulting Fellowship Program (CFP) to prepare strong local talent for a career in management consulting.
