Apply for MBB office of another country after rejection in the US?

Hi,

if someone gets rejected by one of MBB in one country, he gets "blacklisted" for the next 1.5-2 years as far as I know. But can he still apply for the same company in other regions within this time? For instance, if a person gets rejected by a McKinsey US office, will his application for, let's say, McKinsey Middle East still be taken into consideration?

In other words, are the blacklists of MBB shared across all offices worldwide?

Hi Vlad, thanks for you answer!

I never had the intention to trick the system out by using a different name.

I am just quite worrying whether I can apply to another country at the same company or not. I applied for US and Middle East offices first, and thought that if I got rejections I could still apply for my home country offices (Germany). I think I made a mistake and should have applied directly for German offices as well, but I was afraid that they would not be willing to schedule an interview because I am currently in the US for my studies.

I searched at the Q&A here and people said that MBB probably do not share their blacklists across the offices of all countries. For example, a rejection for US offices should only prohibit me from applying to US offices for the next 1.5-2 years, but not worldwide...

Hi,

The short answer is no. There are ways to trick the system with different names and e-mails but I strongly do not recommend doing so
