Hello,

I may be looking a bit too much into branding, but I saw an article saying "Mck=Blue, BCG=Green and Bain=Red".

Is that just a coincidence with their logo colour, or MBB want to portray their personality style ? (Yellow, Red, Green & Blue)

Thanks a lot,

Hi there,

Definitely coincidence! These colors were determined decades ago, and culture/personality changes over time!

Also, if anything, McKinsey would be red :P

Hi Anonymous,

Also in a horoscope you can find pieces of information which you can apply to a certain person.

Same with that one here - you will always find some aspects from color personality based on the logo color as a coincidence...

Hope that helps - if so, please be so kind and give it a thumbs-up with the green upvote button below!

Don't over think it. It is just the color of their logos even though conspiracy theorists will disagree
