As part of this group, you’ll join a global team working on everything from IT modernization and strategy to agile, cloud, cybersecurity, and digital transformation.
You’ll typically work on projects across all industries and functions and will be fully integrated with the rest of our global firm.
You’ll also work with colleagues from across McKinsey & Company to help our clients deliver breakthrough products, experiences, and businesses, both on technology and non-technology topics.
Our office culture is casual and social, with an emphasis on education and innovation. We have the freedom to try new ideas, experiment and are expected to be constantly learning and growing.

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..
What You'll Do
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 (BA) 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 BA.
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.
We view the BA 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 2 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.
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.
