Dalberg Global Development Advisors
“What I like most about Dalberg is working with an impressive team of highly skilled and intelligent people who are very passionate about improving global development. I’m currently working on a West African smallholder farming project, the backbone of African agriculture and food security, to double the size of farmers’ incomes.” – Emily Lutyens, MBA 2013
Dalberg is a strategic advisory firm that works to raise living standards in developing countries and address global challenges. Founded in 2001, this niche management consulting firm specializes in global development and globalization. The firm’s founders coordinated several public-private partnerships and recruited consultants to work with international development organizations. Dalberg now has 120 people from 30 nationalities working in 11 offices around the world (Copenhagen, Dakar, Geneva, Johannesburg, Mumbai, Nairobi, New York, Santiago, San Francisco, Washington D.C.), and has conducted over 600 projects in 80 countries. Its clients include corporations, foundations and NGOs operating in emerging and developing markets and national governments.
The Center’s partnership with Dalberg has led to several employment opportunities for our students. Haas students are attracted to Dalberg’s holistic approach to global development and commitment to serving the “silent client” – the people and communities in bottom-of-the pyramid populations. Dalberg proudly boasts that they are for-profit, but not profit-maximizing and they only take projects that advance the firm’s social mission.
