Wow, engineering is so good for consulting, there...Wow, engineering is so good for consulting, there must be mechanical engineering courses at MBA programs and within MBB training programs. Oh wait, there aren't any. I mean seriously I'm not saying STEMs are bad for MBB, they're just not as good as business degrees. Deal with it. I'm a business... 1 year 5 months

MBB do work with everything from startups to F100 companies, and you're wrong in your assumptions. Not to say that MBB made a huge mistake here be it due to technology or someone's decision. 1 year 9 months
Solid schools, international experience, McKinsey...Solid schools, international experience, McKinsey in your resume. It's like 75+% I guess. You're gonna have a lot more information from your colleagues and special trainings at the Firm than here though. 1 year 11 months

Answering OP's question about if IT and strategy...Answering OP's question about if IT and strategy are thought of differently inside McKinsey. McKinsey has so called BTO (business technology) practice. Even inside McKinsey BTO guys are sometimes (OK, rarely) referred to as people doing some boring back-office BS without proper exit opps.
