What is Virtual Academy?

Virtual Academy is an exciting, multi-stage online programme for Europe based non-business Master and PhD students.

Virtual Academy will be hosted over the course of two months (May and June) – it’s a first fully virtual event for participants who will have exclusive access to the McKinsey Academy and Harvard MenageMentor modules.

What can you expect?

McKinsey Virtual Academy combines modules from one of our most recognizable capability building programmes, McKinsey Academy, with Harvard ManageMentor online courses as well as various virtual skills workshops and a team challenge.

For the first time, complimentary access to the McKinsey Academy Technology Platform, which was designed for our C-suite clients, will be offered to students. Participants will also have access to 30+ topics from the Harvard ManageMentor.

A majority of the Virtual Academy modules are self-paced; therefore, participants can complete them at a time that is most suitable for them. During the programme, participants will be paired with a mentor who will provide them with career advice and give them a glimpse into life at McKinsey.

At the conclusion of the Virtual Academy, there will be an online team challenge, which will allow participants to connect with people from different backgrounds and geographies.
