As a people-first organization, McKinley is committed to investing in our staff’s educational growth and development. Nearly 50% of the firm’s employees started out in a lower-level role than they currently have. McKinley provides tuition reimbursement, professional certification incentives, and professional development in technical skills, diversity and inclusion training, and mentorship opportunities.
McKinley has a long-standing commitment to providing financial assistance to high school graduates pursuing higher education, and offering internship opportunities for college students. In partnership with the University of Alaska, McKinley hosts Alaska’s Data Science and Artificial
Intelligence Lab. This program provides up to 4 students each semester with the opportunity to work at McKinley earning real-life work experience, get course credit, and receive a tuition credit. Each summer, McKinley hosts up to 4 college students in our summer internship program. Students are paired with a team member and participate in real-life work opportunities in the investment and research industries.
