Who You Will Work With

  • Business Analysts join our offices and practices (e.g. Digital, Marketing & Sales, Operations, etc.) around the world to work in teams and directly with our clients. 
  • When you join McKinsey as a Business Analyst (BA), you are joining a firm that will challenge you and invest in your professional development. In this role you will work on the best teams to help the best organizations in the world – in private, public, and social sectors – solve their most difficult problems. You will also work with many experts, from data scientists and researchers to software and app designers.
  • If you are interested in joining a specific practice, please indicate this in your office/practice preference (combinations are possible).

Roles and Responsibilities

  • You’ll work in teams of typically 3 – 5 consultants, playing an active role in all aspects of the client engagement.
  • This includes gathering and analyzing information, formulating and testing hypotheses, and developing and communicating recommendations.  
  • You’ll also have the opportunity to present results to client management and implement recommendations in collaboration with client team members.
  • You’ll gain new skills and build on the strengths you bring to the firm.  
  • Business Analysts receive exceptional training as well as frequent coaching and mentoring from colleagues on their teams.  This support includes a Partner from your local office or practice assigned to you to help guide your career as well as several weeks of formal training in your first two years as a Business Analyst.  
  • Additionally, you’ll receive guidance and support from your local office in the selection of client projects, helping you to develop your skills and build your network. 

Career Growth

  • We view the Business Analyst position as the start of a rewarding, challenging, and highly flexible career with McKinsey.  
  • During your first few years with the firm, you will serve as a BA on multiple client engagements and work with a number of colleagues and clients in a range of industry and functional areas.  We encourage you to explore different content areas or geographies through a year-long rotation with one of our practices (e.g., corporate finance, social sector, healthcare, operations) or global offices; many do this after two years as a generalist BA.  
  • For all BA’s, you will likely intersect with many elements of our firm’s work including Digital, Implementation, Analytics – either by collaborating on teams or working with colleagues from these groups.
  • Following your BA tenure, assuming good performance, you will move into a post-graduate school role.  
  • Some BAs will take advantage of the opportunity to get outside experience through a secondment (externship) with a private sector or social sector client with the firm’s support.  Others may choose to pursue graduate school with support from the firm.
