China

Where will your ideas take you?

Our insights are shaping the future of industries, in some of the most exciting regions on the planet. In China we have offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Qingdao.

China is a driving force in the global economy, and our team of international consultants plays a key role for our clients to benefit from this success. In 2004, we opened our office in Beijing. Later, we expanded to Shanghai and Qingdao.

 

Our Chinese offices have kept pace with China's rapid economic growth. Nowadays, our Beijing office is the second largest worldwide. The SMC teams work side by side with our clients' senior managers, advising on everything from strategy and innovation to sales expansion, production and logistics optimization or product lifecycle management. The goal is to develop world-class solutions that meet the local needs and lead to sustainable growth.
 
Our consultants in China reflect a wide range of academic and professional backgrounds, and the majority have studied and worked both at home and abroad. They bring a plethora of skills and experience to each project, often collaborating with colleagues from our other offices around the world.
