The rules of international business are being rewritten, creating opportunities for companies that are nimble enough to capitalize. BCG’s international business consultants help companies recognize the economic patterns in globalization and seize the future.
Even as the world becomes more decentralized politically and physically, customers, devices, services, processes, and businesses continue to integrate digitally. The simultaneous rise of economic nationalism and digital globalization is redefining the international business landscape. We help companies adapt their products, approaches, and business models to the new global reality. Companies must take a more nuanced approach to identifying and creating growth opportunities.
We help companies absorb the shock of global volatility by building capabilities and structures that enable data integration, flexibility, and agility across borders and businesses.
As an international strategy consultancy, we advise all stakeholders in international business and in economic globalization:
We collaborated with Celcom Axiata, one of Asia’s largest telecommunications companies, to create an e-wallet and lifestyle app called Boost.

We conducted an end-to-end customer experience transformation for a leading cinema operator in India.
