Best Consulting Firms in Europe in Each Practice Area

Consultants across the region rate the top firms in their practice areas.

  • Survey Methodology

    For the 2009 Vault European Consulting survey, we selected a list of top consulting firms to include. These consulting firms were selected because of their prominence in the consulting industry and their interest to consulting job seekers. This year, over 2,400 consultants participated in our survey.

    The Vault survey was distributed to the firms on Vault's list in spring 2009. In some cases, Vault contacted practicing consultants directly. Survey respondents were asked to do several things. They were asked to rate each consulting firm on the survey on a scale of 1 to 10 based on prestige, with 10 being the most prestigious. Consultants were unable to rate their own firm. They were asked to rate only those firms with which they were familiar.

    Vault collected the survey results and averaged the score for each firm. The firms were then ranked, with the highest score being No. 1, down to No. 25.

    Remember that Vault's top-25 European consulting firms are chosen by practicing consultants at top consulting firms. Vault does not choose or influence the rankings. The rankings measure perceived prestige (as determined by consulting professionals) and not revenue, size or lifestyle.
