2nd tier MBA rankings for IB - help [#permalink] New post 27 Apr 2013, 16:30
Haas
Ross
Darden
Fuqua
Johnson

Trying to narrow my list down for applications in the fall. I am thinking about applying to 2 or 3 of the 5, but there doesn't seem to be much information online as far as which are the best for IB placement.

Location both during the MBA program and after don't matter too much to me.

Thank you

Since when did Haas become "2nd tier"? ;)

You might be abit misinformed about the rankings. I think most of the schools you listed place pretty well into IB. Some may have a lesser percentage and that is partially dependent on their location, the career interests of the students and whole bunch of other factors.You might want to first shortlist some schools based on the culture, fit, etc and talk to the current students here on GMAT club, rather than shortlist by rankings and fit your profile into it, just my 2c.

I guess the wording is construed slightly. I included Haas in this pile because they don't seem to place nearly as well into banking. ~5% each year.

Definitely agree with ss87 here. They are all solid schools and you'd have similar chances of getting into investment banking from any of them. Haas places lower with investment banks just because it attracts a lot more students interested in tech due to its location.

Frankly, I don't see any 2nd tier school over here.... If someone really wanted to get into IB, I think any of these schools could help him get in almost as effectively as CBS or Chicago would..

Hey, I replied to you over at WSO, but I agree with all above. These may not be the best places to go for PE or VC... but for IB, you should be fine getting into most places. I know specifically for johnson, they've had solid placement from the IB immersion program.
