The consulting industry of the Middle East is home to hundreds of consulting firms – large, mid-sized, boutique and niche consultancies – serving clients across all industries and segments, and specialised in every conceivable area of expertise. Our guide of top consulting firms showcases the industry’s leading players based on the region’s most extensive database of industry insights.

The ranking consists of top consulting firm lists across 30+ areas of expertise (strategy, management, finance, supply chain, sustainability, etc) and 30+ sectors (financial services, public sector, energy, consumer goods, industry, etc), as well as a number of topic-oriented rankings.

What methodology is used to create the ranking?

As with any ranking, assessing what defines a ‘top firm’ is an ambiguous task. The answer will typically depend on who you ask, when the assessment is conducted, the type of service / expertise evaluated, which countries/regions are being explored, and much more.

To reflect this variety, our approach take a holistic methodology to the assessment of firms, bringing together data from with vetted external insights from trustworthy parties across all audiences – clients, consultants and job seekers – and from across the region and world to create the most comprehensive and inclusive ranking in the world of consulting.

The database powering the ranking contains millions of data points across eight dimensions, with relevant and available data feeding the scores for the 60+ different top consulting firm lists.

All consulting firms with operations in the Middle East qualify for the ranking (there is no opt-in or commercial threshold to join). Firms with a sufficient number of positive scores are included in the ranking, and sorted across five levels: Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Within each class, consultancies are sorted based on their average score (note: differences within a class can be negligible).

Firms with an insufficient number of positive data points are excluded from the ranking. The ranking was created through a complex process and algorithm. The quality of consultancies not included is not disputed.
