McKinsey: Business Analyst vs Junior Associate

Hi! Can someone explain the difference between business analyst and junior associate for McKinsey? I looked at their career portals and initially I thought Junior Associate = Business Analyst for different countries, but then I found out some foreign cities offered both (Abu Dhabi, Singapore City, etc.). I'd like to consider working abroad and was just curious about the technicalities of these two terms.

I get associates are post MBAs, but for junior associates it never stated requirements for MBA, only undergrad
