As a M.Sc. graduate (management), I aim to enter MBB consulting. However, I havent done any internships at MBB and would first like to have an insight as an intern. Do You know at which MBB company this is possible or other top consultancies if no MBB?

Hi Anonymous,

that would depend on your geography, in Italy for example that’s possible for all MBB and most of the other consulting companies, assuming you just graduated; the majority of the firms would be happy to have you as an intern, as it is less risky/expensive for the firm, unless there is a specific legal or internal requirement making that not feasible. In case you are in doubt, you may simply call the HR office, explain your situation and ask confirmation whether that’s feasible or not; in case you find that’s not feasible, you may apply for the full time position.

You can find some further insights on internships vs direct applications at MBB at the following link:

Hi Anonymous A,

I would reach out to recruiters or consultants in the local office(s) that you're interested in applying as this would depend by location as Francesco said. It's also a good time for you to start connecting with people in the offices as well.

All the best!

I have seen multiple questions lately in the Q&A regarding doing masters, which one to choose, MBA vs. MiM, which schools to choose (both in US and Europe).

I joined McK after finishing my master in Architecture (totally not related field of study, and still), and I am doing an MBA in MIT atm. Happy to talk about this, and also happy to guide you with MBA applications, something that I have been doing lately. 

Furthermore, I have been a professor in the Master in Management from Instituto de Empresa, in Madrid (MiM in IE Business School). 

Feel free to PM! Cheers,
