We had the pleasure of hosting representatives from McKinsey Germany for an on-campus presentation on November 30th. They conducted a very interesting presentation on the firm and their opportunities for IE students. Following the presentation, 30 of our students (selected by McKinsey from the CVBook), were invited to a networking lunch with McKinsey’s representatives.
We heard the presentations from the Senior Engagement Manager and a Senior Associate of McKinsey Germany. Also, it was interesting to hear the experience of 3 IE students that used to work at McKinsey before the IMBA and are now planning to go back to the firm after graduation.
After the presentation McKinsey invited around 30 students who were chosen from the CV Book to a networking lunch, where they had time to meet and talk about the company and future opportunities. Student profiles were very diverse, including students from IE University, Master in Management, Master in Finance and International MBA.
During both the presentation and the meal attending students were able to start conversations about the consulting industry in general, trends, and the consulting lifestyle among other topics.
After the presentation, the Senior Engagement Manager of McKinsey Germany informed us about an upcoming recruiting event in February where only 10 students from top schools will be invited. And we are glad to hear that IE is one of those selected schools!
