Business Analyst - Strategy & Corporate Finance

Who You'll Work With

You will be based in our Milan or Rome office as part of our Strategy & Corporate Finance practice.
Our Strategy & Corporate Finance practice works on projects across industries, advising clients on their toughest challenges, including corporate strategy and restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and alliances, business due diligence, value-based management, ESG strategy, and strategy in IPO situations. Our expertise and experience help close the gap between corporate finance and strategy, to have significant impact on the client business and the top-management agenda.
Analysts join our offices and practices to work in teams and directly with our clients. In this role, you will work on the best teams to help the best organizations in the world – in private, public, and social sectors – solve their most difficult problems. You will also work with many experts, from data scientists and researchers to software and app designers.
Your team colleagues will make you feel welcome and help you be at your best during client engagements. You will discover coaches, mentors, sponsors and friends in your learning program. The Professional Development team will complement your experience by tailoring a learning and training program for you, considering your strengths and development needs.

What You'll Do

You will work in teams of typically 2-3 consultants, playing an active role in all aspects of client projects.
Over the course of each project, you will combine traditional management consulting skills with the capabilities needed to use innovative techniques of applied corporate finance, contributing to the development of leading-edge knowledge in areas relevant to corporate finance and strategy. This includes gathering and analyzing information, formulating and testing hypotheses, developing and communicating recommendations. You will also have the opportunity to present results to client management and implement recommendations in collaboration with client team members.
When you will join McKinsey, you will join a firm whose culture is distinctive and inclusive. In McKinsey, we will accelerate your professional development as a leader to create positive, enduring change in the world.
You will receive continuous training as well as frequent coaching and mentoring from colleagues on project teams. This support will include 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, a professional development manager will help you choose projects, at local and international level, based on your priorities as well as the needs of client service teams.
