Marketing & Sales

McKinsey helps leaders create Change that Matters through meaningful growth transformations so that companies can deliver substantial value today and tomorrow. People join McKinsey’s Marketing & Sales Practice for several reasons. Most consultants are already experienced professionals in marketing and sales and are looking for a new intellectual challenge. Some join in order to broaden their knowledge and learn more in their chosen field of marketing and sales. Others emphasize the desire to accelerate their careers and gain new perspectives.

McKinsey Academy

McKinsey Academy helps organizations equip their people with the needed skills to achieve and sustain transformational impact.

An organization’s capabilities are the most important competitive differentiator today and in the future, as organizations chart their path to the next normal. McKinsey research shows that organizations that focus on skill building and having the right resources in the program are three times more likely to succeed in a change effort. McKinsey Academy was created as a center of excellence to help organizations build capabilities at scale to drive change. The focus is on building capabilities that enable strong leadership teams, enterprise-wide transformations, and performance improvements in functional topics such as digital, agile, sales, and operations. Programs help the entire organization from the top team to middle management to front-line employees.
