Anonymous A asked on Apr 20, 2021

I want to work in MBB but I have read that some MBBs are better for some functions and others for others. Can you tell me which practices/functions each one excels at?

Hi there,

There are strong differences even within the same company for different offices.

In Italy for example some core sectors are:

  • McKinsey: Financial institutions
  • BCG: Industrial goods
  • Bain: PE, Luxury goods

But again, this is office-specific. Plus, in some countries, some MBB are not that strong (eg Bain in Russia and the Middle East).

If you can share the office you are targeting and/or your target sectors, it will make it easier to provide suggestions.

Best,

Francesco

Hello!

Unfortunately, that would be a veeery long list.

Why don´t you better list your prefered industry, and we can try to guide you into the right offices?

Hi there,

I agree with Francesco here - it really depends on the office!

If you can tell us which offices you're interested in, we can give you a better idea as to what they're stronger in.

That said, nothing beats networking to get this information out. This is an excellent "excuse" to reach out to people and a great topic for your networking calls!
