McKinsey in Angola

Since 2007, McKinsey has played an active role in Angola’s reconstruction and modernization, contributing to the country’s rapid development and to Africa’s economic rebirth. We support government in expanding key infrastructure and driving institutional reform, and we help international and Angolan companies play their part in the accelerated growth of the business sector. Our work spans multiple industries, including oil and gas, financial services, telecommunications, transport, and retail. McKinsey’s work in Angola is supported by consultants from our offices around the world, as well as a fast-growing cohort of Angolan nationals.
