Hey all. I recently had an old MBA classmate at McKinsey offer to refer me for an Associate role (I'm experienced hire candidate coming out of the start-up field with a Masters + MBA + >5 years of R&D/start-up product experience).
He informed me that for applicants having an MBA, who are referred and invited to apply through their system, there is no need to take the Imbellus/PSG exam that would otherwise be necessary for traditional applicants.
I wanted to confirm with other McKinsey folks on here who may have had experience with this situation.
For context, I'm a US candidate applying within McK US offices, if that makes a difference.
