Are you a student or early career professional* in Europe and want to further develop your problem-solving and analytical skills? Are you excited to learn about digital topics or design thinking? Do you want a chance to win an Apple Watch?

*To be eligible, you must be based in Europe and a current (non-MBA or business) Masters student or PhD student filling a postdoctoral post. We also invite early career professionals, with (non-MBA or business) Masters degrees or PhDs to apply.


Our Virtual Academy combines modules from one of our capability building programmes, McKinsey Academy which was designed for our C-suite clients, as well as virtual skills workshops and a team challenge.

Most of the Virtual Academy modules are self-paced so participants can complete them at a time suitable for them. During the programme, participants will be paired with a mentor for career advice and a glimpse into life at McKinsey. At the conclusion of the Virtual Academy, there will be an online team challenge, which will help participants connect with others in the programme.
