About McKinsey & Company

From McKinsey

MGI’s mission is to help leaders in the commercial, public, and social sectors develop a deeper understanding of the evolution of the global economy and to provide a fact base that contributes to decision making on critical management and policy issues.

The McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), the business and economics research arm of McKinsey, was established in 1990 to develop a deeper understanding of the evolving global economy. MGI’s mission is to provide leaders in the commercial, public, and social sectors with the facts and insights on which to base management and policy decisions.

MGI research combines the disciplines of economics and management, employing the analytical tools of economics with the insights of business leaders. Its “micro-to-macro” methodology examines microeconomic industry trends to better understand the broad macroeconomic forces affecting business strategy and public policy.

MGI’s in-depth reports have covered more than 20 countries and 30 industries. Current research focuses on six themes: productivity and growth, natural resources, labor markets, the evolution of global financial markets, the economic impact of technology and innovation, and urbanization. Recent reports have assessed the digital economy, impact of AI and automation on employment, income inequality, the productivity puzzle, the economic benefits of tackling gender inequality, a new era of global competition, Chinese innovation, and digital and financial globalization. The partners of McKinsey fund MGI’s research; it is not commissioned by any business, government, or other institution.

The McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) has been named the number one private-sector think tank in the world in the 2017 Global Go to Think Tank Index Report published on January 31, 2018 by the Think Tank and Civil Society Program at the Lauder Institute, University of Pennsylvania. This is the third year in a row that MGI has been awarded this top spot in the global ranking.

Leadership

MGI is led by three McKinsey & Company senior partners: Jacques Bughin, Jonathan Woetzel, and James Manyika, who also serves as the chairman of MGI.

In addition, MGI regularly solicits input from a group of McKinsey directors who make up the MGI Council. The Council’s role is to help MGI shape its research agenda, lead high-impact research, and disseminate the findings to decision makers around the world.

Project teams are led by MGI partners and a group of senior fellows and include consultants from McKinsey’s offices around the world. These teams draw on McKinsey’s global network of partners and industry and management experts.
