Association of Management Consulting Firms (AMCF)

The organization and the mission

The Association of Management Consulting Firms (AMCF) is a professional organization whose primary mission is to support firms that provide management consulting services. Founded way back in 1929 as the Association of Management Consulting Engineers (AMCE), the AMCF remains the leading international consulting industry body. The AMCF's central offices are in New York.

The Association's mission is to both support the profession and its goals before the public, the government and the business community, to provide member firms with a base of knowledge and best practices in the sector, and to promote professional conduct and excellence in management consulting.

AMCF: criteria and standards

Membership criteria are quite strict and one of AMCF's main goals over the decades has been to keep upholding them. When they join, the companies must agree to abide by the Association's strict Code of Ethics and always provide nothing less than top notch service to their clients. The firms that apply must have at least five years of experience in the business to prove their competence and stability.

There are eight membership categories, based on the companies' annual profit. The AMCF represents both multinational and single office firms from around the globe whose services entail a wide range of expertise. AMCF members include such big firms as Capgemini, IBM Business Consulting Services, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Tata Consultancy Services and many other big names in consulting.

Career benefits for management consultants working for the AMCF member firms

The AMCF helps management consulting firms adjust to the fast progress on the market by providing them with support, knowledge and always keeping them informed on the best business and career opportunities that the market brings.

Membership in the AMCF is widely regarded as evidence of high standards of professionalism and longevity on the market by industry peers in the consulting community.
