Are you eligible?
If you are eligible for consulting internships in the next calendar year, you can apply to MCA. In the spring, you can meet this requirement if:
You are a second-year student in a 4-year program
You are a third-year student in a 5-year program
You are a first-year student in a 4-year program OR a second-year student in a 5-year program eligible for McKinsey, Bain, or BCG’s diversity program for sophomores. Generally, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, or Indigenous/Native American/Alaska Native students are eligible for these programs.

I’m a junior or senior, and I want to recruit for full-time positions. Can I apply?
No. We only support students recruiting for internships.
Do I have to be a business major to apply?
No, MCA is open to students of all majors, given that you meet the other eligibility requirements.
Do you recruit during the Spring and Fall semesters?
Historically, MCA has recruited during the Spring and Fall semesters. However, because consulting firms have moved up their application deadlines considerably, we have eliminated our Fall recruitment cycle. Although our policy is subject to change, we plan only to recruit during the Spring semesters.
Can I reapply if I am not admitted?
You can reapply only if you maintain eligibility in the next application cycle. This is not possible for most students, since we only accept students who are eligible for consulting internships in the next calendar year.
I’m a woman. Do I quality for diversity programs? Can I apply as a freshman?
Generally, women must also identify as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, or Indigenous/Native American/Alaska Native to qualify for diversity programs. Refer to McKinsey, Bain, or BCG’s diversity program requirements for sophomores.
I’m a graduate student. Can I apply?
We only recruit undergraduate students.
