I am currently pursuing a masters degree in Germany and a few weeks ago I had interviews with most strategy consulting firms for an internship and managed to get offers from Kearney, Roland Berger and McKinsey. The plan was to do Kearney and Berger this summer and McKinsey in February to March next year.
Now I received a call that my Kearney internship has to be postponed by 2 months (original start date was May), which would clash with the start date of my Berger internship, however, I have no information from Berger so far if the internship will actually take place.
At the same time, I heard that McKinsey canceled all their summer internships this year in Germany.
Therefore my 2 questions would be:
1.) Do you have any concrete information about the current internship situation from top tier strategy consulting firms in Germany (also for BCG, Bain etc. as some friends want to start there but I think it is not necessary that each of us creates an own post) - which ones are canceled?
2.) When an internship this summer is canceled, how do consulting firms handle it? Will the intern get an automatic full-time offer (heard of this in some forums)?
Thank you very much for your time and support!
