McKinsey Solutions - Finalta - Associate Analyst - Europe - Budapest
Who you’ll work with

You'll work in Budapest with our Finalta team, one of our McKinsey Solutions and part of New Ventures.
Finalta is the global leader in retail banking benchmarking and best practice analysis, working with over 250 retail banks in more than 50 countries.  Clients use our services to provide an objective assessment of performance against peers, quantify opportunities for improvement and track their fulfillment over time. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of McKinsey & Company; however, we operate independently under our own brand and management team.  As a rapidly growing organisation, we are expanding globally, and now have offices in Chicago, Miami, Singapore and London. 2016 marks an exciting time at Finalta with the launch of our 5th office in Budapest, a new hub to help cover the Central and Eastern European region. 

New Ventures is a recently formed part of McKinsey focused on fostering innovations driven by analytics, design thinking, mobile, social and other technologies and integrating them into our client work. It is a foundation for—and expands our investment in—our entrepreneurial culture.

McKinsey Solutions is a core part of New Ventures and offers practical tools that help people at all levels of an organization generate insights they need to address both strategic and day-to-day decisions. These solutions complement McKinsey's traditional client service and are delivered in many ways, including subscriptions, workshops, training programs and project-based engagements. We work closely with clients to embed our tools, analytics and expertise, and provide on-going support to help them build the capabilities they need to revolutionize how decisions are made.
