As continue to dig deep into schools that I have shortlisted I coming to agree more and more that the top 15 -20 US schools are good for strategy and management consulting and as one goes below the schools tend to become more known for one particular area withing Management Consulting such as Operations Management, Supply Chain and Logistics etc.
What do fellow Gmatclubers feel about this?
Are there any schools which are in elite or near elite clusters good for strategy and MC?
I think all the elite and most of the near-elite schools are good for strategy and MC. Some of the near-elite may be a bit weaker than the elite schools. However, I have found schools below that level to be more reputed locally. They tend to have a strong regional reputation. For Eg. UT-Austin in the south, OSU/Indiana in the midwest, etc.
I would also advise going through the career reports for schools you are interested in to get a better idea on where they place graduates.
I believe its yogurt!
