At Mastercard Advisors, you will be part of a team of experienced management consultants with backgrounds from top tier consulting firms.

At Mastercard, we truly care about our people and we will support you in having a high quality of life. We offer flexibility and freedom to find the ways of working that fits you best and encourages a sound work/life balance.

Typically, our projects are of a strategic nature and last for 1-4 months, with recent topics including sustainable payment offering strategy, new consumer value proposition development, market entry strategy, future of payment strategy, loyalty program creation, youth segment strategy, segmentation analysis and customer life cycle marketing campaigns. Additionally, we often leverage our data to help our partners identify new opportunities to increase their performance.
