Functions and industries

Dozens of industry and topic areas

McKinsey is organized into geographical offices and into practices, our term for capability areas focused on either an industry or topic (also known as a functional capability). The broad range of practices reflects the broad range of work we do.

Industry practices

McKinsey maintains practices for 18 global industries. We understand these industries from the inside out and continuously strengthen our expertise by working with many of the leading organizations in each sector. Their leaders rely on us to help them identify and respond to market dynamics, emerging trends, advances in technology, and other forces shaping their business.

Functional practices

McKinsey has seven practices dedicated to core business disciplines. We make significant investments annually to remain at the forefront of these specialties through research, talking to experts, and developing new insights. We apply this expertise to help leaders transform the performance of their organizations.
