About Us

Our people come from all over the world, with a broad diversity of educational and professional backgrounds—all bound by a shared passion for problem solving and a drive to have significant impact in the world.

Who we are

We are the trusted advisor and counselor to many of the most influential businesses and institutions in the world. We serve more than 80 percent of Fortune magazine’s list of the Most Admired Companies.

We are a global organization, with more than 90 offices in more than 50 countries. We speak over 120 languages and represent over 100 nationalities.

We operate as one firm, bringing the best experts from around McKinsey and from our external network to each engagement.

We value diversity. We hire as many MDs, PhDs, MAs and JDs as we do MBAs. The richness of our backgrounds gives McKinsey the range of expertise we need to tackle our clients’ most complex problems.

We are diverse, but we all have one thing in common: we are exceptional problem solvers. We bring intellectual curiosity and a passion for world-shaping impact to each new challenge.  


Leadership in the firm is not about rising above the rest, but helping others—consultants and clients—to exceed their own expectations.

Individuals at McKinsey pursue this objective in many ways: by helping clients address their toughest challenges, developing ground-breaking knowledge, being entrepreneurs. McKinsey aspires to help leaders realize their full potential, while recognizing that every leadership path is unique.
