Lebanon is a significant exporter of management consulting services. SMDC members increase their exports significantly after joining.
All of the major global consulting firms are strong in the Lebanese consulting industry – but so are many specialist smaller firms and individual experts which have specific expertise or skills.
Independent research for SMDC has shown that consulting projects, on average, generate benefits for clients worth $6 for every $1 spent in fees.
Lebanese consultants are regional leaders in the industry that spans a wide array of firms, some of which only undertake ‘pure’ management consulting work, some of which are sub-contractors of larger firms that also undertake IT systems development, outsourcing, and other activities.
