Over the next few weeks, we’re going to dive into the 2020 consulting rankings—which comprise our signature Consulting 50, as well as rankings of the best consulting firms within Strategy, IT, Operations, Entrepreneurship, Danish Roots, Prestige, CSR, Employee Satisfaction, Compensation, Career Outlook and Growth.  However, we wanted to take a minute here to highlight some of the standouts of this year’s top 50 rankings. 


It’s no surprise that McKinsey, BCG and Bain (MBB) tops the list. They have been some of the most sought after employers for students for many years due to the prestige of landing a job with them, the learning they provide on the job and the exit opportunities. They are simply the best consulting companies in Denmark.

It is positive to see the two Danish firms Implement (#6) and the in-house consulting arm of Novo Nordisk (#7) high on the list as well. They both have very strong brands amongst students and their innovative approaches combined with a better work life balance has made them attractive for many top students.

Finally then we have an entrepreneurial firm on the list – EYBOX (#16). The company which was a merger between EY and BOX combines the classical consulting deeds with an innovative approach to problem solving. 



Newcomers that didn’t make this years list

Some companies didn’t make the list due to the eligibility criteria of having more than 25 full times employees. However some of the smaller companies have been making a lot of noice and we expect to see them on the list in the coming years:


  • Kopenhagen Konsulting (Up and coming strategy consulting firm with impressive growth)
  • Edura (A newly established consulting firm focused specifically on the educational sector)
  • Kvadrant Consulting (A fast growing bunch of B2B Sales & Marketing Specialists)

About the Graduateships Top 50 Consulting Firms

The 2020 Graduateships Consulting rankings are based on four core sources; More than 20 interviews with current and former consultants, Review of five global rankings, desktop research of more than 100 Danish consulting firms and a review of over 75 annual reports.


Top Ranked 2020The Graduateships Consulting 50 is based on a combination of internal and external scores. To make the ranking as objective as possible, we created the Graduateships Index consisting of seven metrics.  We selected the seven metrics by asking students and young professionals what they find most important when evaluating where to work.  They emphasized that not all metrics were equally important. To account for this, we have created a weighted system and scored all companies within each metric: 25% Prestige; 15% Compensation; 15% Career Outlook; 15 % Employee Satisfaction; 10% CSR; 10% Diversity; 10% Company Growth
