Lagos
Industries: Advanced Electronics
Functions: Marketing & Sales

Who You’ll Work With

  • Business Analysts join our offices in locations around the world to work in teams and directly with our clients.
  • When you join McKinsey as a Business Analyst (BA), you are joining a firm that will challenge you and invest heavily in your professional development. In this role you will have the opportunity to work on teams and help the best organizations in the world – across the private, public, and social sectors – solve some of their most difficult problems. You will also work with a range of experts in the firm, from data scientists to researchers to software and app designers.

What You’ll Do

  • You’ll work in teams of typically 3 – 5 consultants, playing an active role in all aspects of the 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.
  • You’ll gain new skills and build on the strengths you bring to the firm. Business Analysts 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 several weeks of formal training in your first two years as a Business Analyst.
  • Additionally, you’ll receive guidance and support from your local office in the selection of client projects, helping you to develop your skills and build your network.
  • We view the Business Analyst position as the start of a rewarding, challenging, and highly flexible career with McKinsey.
  • During your first few years with the firm, you will serve as a BA on multiple client engagements and work with a number of colleagues and clients in a range of industry and functional areas.
  • We encourage you to explore different content areas or geographies through a year-long rotation with one of our practices (e.g., corporate finance, social sector, healthcare, operations) or global offices; many do this after two years as a generalist BA.
  • Following your BA tenure, assuming good performance, you will move into a post-graduate school role.
  • Some BAs will take advantage of the opportunity to get outside experience through a secondment (externship) with a private sector or social sector client with the firm’s support.
  • Others may choose to pursue graduate school with support from the firm.

  • The Africa Delivery Hub is a quickly growing team within McKinsey addressing complex public, societal and government challenges within a new Firm delivery model. We are looking to add ADH consultants in our Johannesburg and Nairobi offices.*
  • Local language skills and knowledge strongly preferred.

Detailed Descriptions

  • The ADH develops and implements exciting social sector or government programs such as reforming primary schools in South Africa, implementing special economic zones in Kenya or transforming power infrastructure across African countries.
  • Associates and analysts will work on projects that are typically longer term, more tangible, and with greater focus on leadership and coaching of client teams

Job Title: Associate Intern
Location:
Lagos

Job Descriptions

Who You’ll Work With:

  • You’ll work in one of our offices around the world for 8 – 10 weeks, usually in the summer.
  • You’ll work as part of a client project team, collaborating with colleagues and clients to solve their toughest business problems.

What You’ll Do

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