When can I apply for an internship at McKinsey?

Anonymous A asked on Apr 22, 2017 - 1 answer

Hi guys! I am currently in my second semester of my Bachelor studies and I would like to apply for an internshp at McKinsey. I have heard that they only take students who almost completed their studies. Is that true and if yes, in which semester can/should I apply for the internship?

Hey! From experience I can tell you that McKinsey usually only takes students from the 3rd/4th semester or above. Of course, it might also depend on whether you have previous work experience in form of internships or so. I would say just go for it and try your luck, but I would also apply for smaller consultancies, not only MBB. Good luck!
