Celebrating 10 years of impact in education

As often happens at McKinsey, our work in education was spearheaded by a few fiercely passionate colleagues who felt the firm was uniquely suited to help with this challenge. “We have always believed that education is the one thing that can catapult a person through adversity and social class,” explains Li-Kai Chen, a partner based in Malaysia who leads our work today. With 40+ active partners and 500+ colleagues carrying out about 100 projects a year, we focus on improving outcomes for students ranging from the pre-K years to early career.
