This business course is a comprehensive introduction to Digital McKinsey, our people, and the way we solve complex problems. This year it will take place in Amsterdam.
During this exclusive 3-day event in Amsterdam, you will work in small teams, coached by our consultants, to solve a real business case and experience the key elements of consulting at the intersection of business and technology.
Are you wondering if McKinsey is the right company for you? Do you want to experience what it is like to work as a McKinsey consultant?
This business course is an insider’s look into strategy consulting. Come and meet our Digital consultants who, like you, are from diverse backgrounds and find out why they chose to start a career in strategy consulting.
It is a unique event where you can learn about different techniques for solving problems, with a chance to see what it would be like to work as a Digital consultant. You will be able to have all your questions answered in a relaxed, fun, and informal atmosphere.
Participants will also be offered a typical McKinsey training which all our consultants follow during their first year with us. This exclusive training will help enhance your communication and interpersonal skills which are an important asset in today's business environment.
What is Digital McKinsey?
Digital McKinsey is a practice within McKinsey that focuses on helping clients across a range of industries to understand and harness the transformative power of technology. Digital McKinsey offers an exceptional opportunity to work at the intersection of business and technology.
It is comprised of nearly 1,000 McKinsey consultants globally who help clients think strategically about how to use technology to create fundamental business change.
What kind of work do Digital consultants do?
Digital consultants work on the same types of engagements as anyone else at McKinsey. On balance, however, we do more technology-related projects than others at the firm.
