  The Management Consulting Industry and the Profession


  The Consulting Industry in Hong Kong is one of the most professional in the world and ranks with the world's best in certain consulting areas -- logistics, telecommunication strategy, privatization, mobile strategy, governance, and service quality to name a few. Some of the world's leading consulting firms have their regional headquarters in Hong Kong and they generally serve China and Asia. Several hundred local consulting firms claim their home in Hong Kong and they generally serve the Pearl River Delta Region.

The profession of management consulting is self-regulated. One of the objectives of the Institute of Management Consultants in Hong Kong is to continue to push the level of professionalism to match and exceed world's standards, and in this regard, the institute has adapted the United Kingdom Professional Code of Conduct and formulated one of the toughest examination programmes for certifying management consultants in the world. We use external examiners, panel exams, and realistic operating conditions in our certification exam which is held twice a year.
