The Management Consultancies Association (MCA) is the representative body for management consultancy firms in the UK. Our member companies comprise around 60% of the UK consulting industry, employ around 30,000 consultants and work with over 90 of the top FTSE 100 companies and almost all parts of the public sector.
The MCA informs and influences public debate on topical issues, and provides authoritative data on the industry. It commissions research and policy analysis and represents the industry in discussions with Government and other stakeholders. The MCA also facilitates networking and the sharing of best practice within the industry through events, publications and initiatives such as the Young MCA.
The MCA’s tough entry criteria and rigorous Code of Practice mean that MCA member companies are widely acknowledged to provide high quality services to their clients. Many of their achievements are recognised in the annual MCA Awards.
The MCA focuses on delivering value to members through three key objectives:
• Being the voice of the industry
• Promoting a credible and professional industry
• Creating better engagement with and between members.
Management consultancy creates value for organisations and the wider economy through improved performance, achieved by providing objective advice and implementing business solutions. The UK consulting industry is amongst the best in the world and a vital part of the business landscape.
