Who you’ll work with

You'll join our Italian office in either Milan or Rome as an Associate. Associate consultants join our global offices in locations around the world to work in teams and directly with our clients.

What you’ll do

You’ll work in teams of typically 3 – 5 consultants, playing an active role in all aspects of client engagement.

This includes gathering and analyzing information, formulating and testing hypotheses, and developing and communicating recommendations.  You’ll also have the opportunity to present results to client management and implement recommendations in collaboration with client team members.

Associates receive exceptional training as well as frequent coaching and mentoring from colleagues on their teams.  This support includes a Partner from your local office or practice assigned to you to help guide your career as well as up to five weeks of formal training in your first two years as an Associate.  Additionally, you’ll receive guidance and support from your local office or practice in the selection of client projects, helping you to develop your skills and build your network.

While all consultants develop specialized knowledge and a focused program as they progress with McKinsey, most are initially very broad in their focus, meaning they do not need specific industry or functional expertise to be successful. For consultants who join McKinsey as experienced professionals, this can mean building on previous knowledge or developing unique experience in an area that is completely new.  


  • Master of Science degree or above required (MBA a plus)
  • 4 years+ of progressive management role in reputable organizations or consulting experience with demonstrated business results
  • Demonstrated success in the areas of strategic thinking, effective team building, change leadership, and results orientation
  • Strong logic and analytic skills; strong facilitation and consulting skills
  • Excellent coaching, mentoring, and team development skills
  • Ability to communicate complex ideas effectively, both verbally and in writing, in both English and the local office language(s)
