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 think most of the schools in the elite cluster will give you a good shot at strategy and MC jobs. I think Darden, Duke, TUck and Ross all have great reputations in consulting, but other schools in the cluster should be just fine as well. I don't know much about the near elite schools.

I agree with pelihu. I would add that UNC seems to be the strongest within the Trans Elite Cluster.

The Trans Elites usually have strong regional reputations so if you have a specific area of the country you want to end up in then your best bet is to focus on schools there. Once you are in the Elite and Ultra Elite it matters a whole lot less but there is still a regional bias. Even the very top schools tend to keep a majority of their students in that part of the country...so thats where their strong alumni networks are based.
