The answer is company specific, but as a general rule, no not really. The international firms you mention have typucally developed HR systems that will cross check your application with other offices.

This depends by firm - but the answer is:

  • Check if the firm offers the option to put multiple countries for the application - this is possible
  • If the firm doesn't then you can still try with different emails / contact details - but might be detected by system. Might be worth a shot though, if and when your application to your first choice country is unsuccessful.

Good luck!

At Kearney, Oliver Wyman and Roland Berger, you can definitely apply for multiple regions simultaneously (you do not need to create a different account with another email address for that). You need to submit the applications separately, though.

However, in case two or more offices invite you for interviews, you need to decide for one. In case you are rejected after an interview in the office you chose, you would need to wait 1-2 years until you can re-apply, globally.

I don't know about Deloitte and Simon Kucher, since I haven't applied there.
