BOSTON—Boston Consulting Group (BCG) announced today global revenue of $12.3 billion in 2023. After very strong growth in 2021 and 2022, BCG saw continued revenue growth of 5% for 2023, against the backdrop of a complex macroeconomic context. 2023 also marked the firm’s 20th consecutive year of growth. BCG’s global workforce grew to 32,000 at the end of 2023, up from 30,000 a year earlier. 

“Demand for BCG accelerated in the second half of 2023 and has further accelerated in the first quarter of 2024,” said Christoph Schweizer, BCG’s CEO. “Optimizing cost and productivity, integrating AI/Generative AI into our clients’ operations and processes, resolving complex technology challenges, and navigating climate change and sustainability topics topped client priorities for the year. GenAI is a strong driver of growth as clients need to move from experimentation to impact. Our deep industry, functional, and AI expertise positions us uniquely to deliver. We remain laser-focused on helping clients solve their biggest challenges.”
