TOP CONSULTANT evaluates the performance of consultants, who specialize in the Mittelstand sector and thus determines the best consultants for those Medium-sized businesses that are the backbone and impulse of the German economy.

The confidence of our customers is our most precious asset

Trust is the basis for a long-lasting customer relationship. Recommendations are therefore of immense value, for consultants. This is especially true in a market that is as competitive as the advisors’ market.

The TOP CONSULTANT quality seal helps display to the public that the firms that have been awarded the seal are competent and reliable partners, thus becoming a recommendation par excellence.

High profile communication

TOP CONSULTANT is the only competition in Germany, which measures the competence and performance of consultants specifically related to the Mittelstand.

Thanks to the independent scientific analysis by Prof. Dr. Dietmar Fink and his team (Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University), the seal is more credible than any advertising campaign.

The Competition Jury is staffed with high-caliber specialist and representatives of political parties, large Corporates and scientists.

Scientific analysis as basis for the award

The Scientific Society for Management and Consulting is a scientific research institute. Founded in 2001, the institute is independent and has taken an important role in the applied research with a focus on management and consulting, in Germany.

Through the intense work performed by Prof. Dr. Dietmar Fink and Bianka Knobloch, the Institute has become well known for its studies of the German consulting market. The results of its research achieve a high degree of acceptance, beyond the scientific community also in the daily and business press.

Statement by Prof. Dr. Dietmar Fink

“Medium-sized companies expect that their consultants communicate on a par and generate individual solutions to their specific challenges. TOP CONSULTANTS impressively prove that they live up to their customers’ wishes and think outside the box. The TOP CONSULTANT quality seal gives clients an orientation point in the vast consulting jungle.”
