Business Analyst with Kearney
Kearney is a global team of forward-thinking, collaborative partners that delivers immediate, meaningful results and a long-term transformational advantage to our clients and colleagues. We are talented problem solvers who work in a collegial way to create and implement elegantly simple, practical, and sustainable solutions. Consequently, we seek people with a combination of analytical skills, academic excellence, and superior inter-personal attributes. For graduates and advanced-graduates without previous (or limited) work experience, the Kearney Business Analyst program is an outstanding introduction to the discipline of management consulting. Business Analysts learn and apply the fundamentals of management consulting as they identify, study, and solve business issues across a wide range of industries.

As a Business Analyst, you are able to contribute immediately as a full member of the client team, where you are expected to contribute ideas, opinions, and new information. Working with experienced consultants, Business Analysts develop models, perform complex analyses, and work on research assignments at both the office and client sites. Analysts often travel while on assignments, undertaking a broad range of activities while gaining exposure to the business world. They may also participate in marketing activities and preparing proposals for new engagement opportunities.

We emphasize career development, providing our consultants with ongoing feedback and helping them manage their careers. Our goal is to help our people be very successful throughout their career lifecycle. The scope of your consulting role will increase as rapidly as your performance warrants. Most Business Analysts with undergraduate degrees remain with the firm for two to three years and then enter graduate school. Top-performing consultants who have been with the firm for at least two years and who are committed to returning to the firm are eligible for the Kearney Scholars’ Program. This program provides selected consultants with significant support for tuition and fees so that they can obtain an MBA degree at a top business school while on an educational leave of absence.

Kearney also offers our Business Analysts the possibility of promotion to the position of Senior Business Analyst after their first 15 to 21 months with the firm. Regardless of how long you stay with Kearney, the experience you gain and the relationships you develop will be with you throughout your career. Our flourishing global alumni network is a testament to our commitment to our people—and their commitment to Kearney.

Kearney offers individualized training to enhance your consulting knowledge and potential. Upon joining the firm, you will participate in the Business Analyst Skills Development Program (BASD), in which you will learn essential concepts and methodologies. BASD focuses on the skills required to analyze financial statements, decipher annual reports, and gather strategic background information on clients, prospects, and competitors to build company and industry profiles. Immediately after BASD, you will enter New Consultant Orientation (NCO), where you will learn about our business objectives, goals and values, while building relationships with peers and contacts within the firm. Your training program continues with a full curriculum of courses available to enhance your skills.

What We Seek
There is no single model or standard for Kearney Business Analysts. Most Business Analysts join us immediately after graduating college with undergraduate degrees in fields that include business, engineering and the liberal arts. Others join after gaining industry experience elsewhere, studying abroad, or pursuing graduate work in areas other than business. In addition to a strong academic record, the relevant attributes for a Business Analyst include being a team contributor, having excellent problem-solving abilities, exceptional communication skills, strong quantitative skills, and personal maturity.

Business Analyst Contributions
At Kearney, no two client engagements are identical. Each requires unique insights and offers unique challenges. The following are examples of successful outcomes our Business Analysts have helped clients achieve:

  • Conducted an activity-based analysis of key business processes, which helped to identify quick hits that resulted in 15 percent efficiency gains; the team also made final recommendations to management for longer-term improvements
  • Performed a competitor benchmarking analysis by identifying savings opportunities of $15 million (50 percent of total expenditures) for the finance function of a major oil company, positioning it for sustained growth
