BCG has an office Abu Dhabi. When I left in 2018 the office was not as big as Dubai but still sizeable (I'd say c.a. 80 consultants) and my guess is that it grew a lot over the last couple of years.

In terms of staffing (i.e. mix of industries, type of client, etc), Dubai and Abu Dhabi were pretty much overlapping with a big portion of their consulting staff deployed in Saudi where BCG used to have (and still has) a good share of the business.

Hope it helps

Hi there,

Yes, BCG has an office in Abu Dhabi:

Doing the same search on LinkedIn for both Abu Dhabi and Dubai, it seems quite smaller than the latter though. Also, few people are using as specific location that office, so the proportion may be even smaller.

Best,
Francesco

Hi,

Hi there,

Yes they do! I don't know the exact size but it's certainly much smaller than Dubai. That said, a lot of the work, teams, etc. would be similar/shared.

Best way to get more info as well is to network. Two birds, one stone (i.e. intel on the office AND possibility of referral).
