McKinsey Middle East Knowledge Hub

We offer innovative regional knowledge capabilities that help our clients solve their toughest challenges.

The McKinsey Middle East Knowledge Hub is a fast-growing incubator for research and knowledge. We work as a unified group across multiple locations—Dubai, Karachi, Kuwait, and Riyadh—and in partnership with our global Knowledge Network across the firm to serve our clients and communities. Our goals are threefold:

  • Embed deep local expertise in every client project.

  • Foster a culture of knowledge investment and entrepreneurship.

  • Nurture knowledge leaders that can guide the region into the future.

Founded in 2014, the Middle East Knowledge Hub was born out of a McKinsey effort to expand the research and analytics capabilities of local offices. Today, we offer regional knowledge at the size and scale our clients need to solve their toughest challenges. While we advise clients on a range of topics, we are particularly focused on healthcare, education, economic development, banking, digital, social media analytics, telecommunications, retail, and mining. We also regularly partner with clients to help them build their own internal knowledge capabilities. Steadfast in our commitment to the future, we seek the best talent from local ecosystems and help mold them into the leaders of tomorrow.
