McKinsey Virtual Skills Training Programme
Deadline: 30 May 2021
McKinsey is excited to launch Forward as our region’s flagship social-responsibility initiative. The workforce is rapidly changing, and there are many gaps in high-quality learning programs for young people just starting their careers in small companies, not for profits, or even self-employment. Forward offers a unique and transformational experience for young professionals across industries and job functions.
Forward’s three-level, virtual learning program offers you access to McKinsey’s cutting-edge content and a community of peers. It equips you with practical skills and tools to apply throughout your career. Forward is launching in Africa, with plans to expand to other regions soon.
At the end of the program, you will be able to:
apply agile ways of working and spot opportunities to use data and technology to improve your work
creatively tackle complex business challenges and communicate your messages effectively and clearly
adapt, be resilient and work successfully both independently and in teams
Participants in Forward must meet the following criteria:
be a university graduate
have no more than five years of formal work experience (not including internships)
be currently employed in a private small/medium company (meaning fewer than 250 employees around the world), not for profit, nongovernmental organization or be self-employed (for example, as a business owner or freelancer)
have a good command of the English language, which the program will use
