AT Kearney is a worldwide known management consulting firm. The company is a result of a split between partners of another renowned firm, McKinsey and Company (McKinsey & Co.), which occurred some 70 years ago. It originated as a Chicago-based consulting firm but has now expanded into many countries worldwide.
Today, AT Kearney and McKinsey and Co. are strong competitors serving similar markets and industries. Other top companies competing with them include The Boston Consulting Group and Bain & Co.
AT Kearney exercises vigorous recruitment process as the company is committed to recruit the best talents in the market. There will be a number of rounds of assessments before the successful candidates are offered a job with AT Kearney. Such move is necessary as the company is serving top multinational companies which require people with strong aptitude in the business and management consultancy and hence only top graduates from top universities with strong potential and proven capabilities are accepted.
