This article discusses the geographies of management consultancy firms. It first considers some general insights that can be collected from studies of knowledge-intensive producer services, and then takes a look at the applicability of the insights to management consultancy firms in relevant literature. The next section studies two primary and important theoretical debates and the processes of localization and collection used in urban economies. It also studies the issues connected to the theme of globalization and cross-border business and the geographies of globalization strategies of management consultancy firms.
