You will be based in our Waltham, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, Tampa, or Washington DC office as part of our McKinsey Academy team.
McKinsey Academy is designed for rising professionals and senior teams to develop the capabilities they need to help their organizations thrive. Our programs include courses developed and taught by McKinsey partners, combined with perspectives from the broader market including academics, executives, and thought leaders. The programs combine group-based project work and the newest social approaches that reinforce effective, lasting skills development. With optional in-person components, our programs can be a cost-effective way to build the capabilities of a large number of participants across an organization.
McKinsey Academy is part of the Accelerate Growth Platform which enables McKinsey to partner with our clients to ensure sustained impact through flawless execution and capability building. We do this by bringing the knowledge, assets, and expertise that clients are asking for: transformation and change management support, capability building at scale, leadership and top team transformation. In so doing, we believe we will be the preeminent institution in helping clients implement their strategies, which includes building the leadership teams, skills and capabilities their strategies require for success.
You will administer and coordinate the delivery of multiple McKinsey Academy blended and in-person program workshops while working with multiple stakeholders simultaneously.
In this role, your day to day responsibilities will revolve around identifying and organizing all logistics related to workshops within a portfolio or set of programs. You will collaborate with relevant colleagues and stakeholders to ensure all workshop-specific needs are identified and organized for a smooth delivery (e.g., launching pre-defined communications, enabling facilitator/teaching assistant preparation, managing logistics and vendor relationships, producing the virtual program). You will also ensure that successful programs are delivered with a 'best in class' experience for our faculty and clients.
You will orchestrate all pre and post program actions for assigned programs including supporting virtual, in-person and blended journeys as well as interacting directly with our client participants. You will work with a broad set of individuals and will communicate critical information in a clear, accurate and timely manner. You will also document, compile and share post program reporting on workshop learning data as needed through our collaboration and pipeline tool.
You'll be a part of a global team so you will also support team-specific strategic projects. You will own workstreams aligned with your strengths and passions.
