Booth, Kellogg, Stern Alumni Network Strength [#permalink] New post 24 Dec 2013, 14:01
Hello everyone,

I'm in Merger & Acquisition / Consulting space. Since my wife and I are contemplating on relocating to either Chicago, New York, or Southern California, which program has the strongest alumni network in these locations? I assume that Booth and Kellogg are strong in Chicago, but how about in New York or Southern California? Same thing with Stern. I assume its network is strong for New York but how about in Chicago and Southern California?

Appreciate your input.

If you're considering Stern, might as well consider UCLA for Socal, since they are similarly ranked. If you get into all, I'd recommend Kellogg as its strongest in Management Consulting.

Thanks for your input. I earned my BS from UCLA and MS from USC. Have to say that I would never consider UCLA again based on personal experience. I've been accepted by all 3 schools and I am leaning toward either Booth or Kellogg. Do you have any insight on their alumni network in New York City and possibly job placement? How does Booth/Kellogg compete w/ CBS and NYU in Manhattan? Thank you in advance.

Take a very good look at the employment reports, and also poets and quants break down of Stern versus Columbia. Long story short is that Columbia, Booth and Kellogg are WAY better when it comes to the ultra elite firms (MBB's and top investment banks). Unless there's differences in scholarships, your choice really should be between Booth and Kellogg. Can't go wrong with either school, but in general Kellogg is stronger for consulting and Booth for finance, but both place great every where. They both have national recruiting, so it doesn't really matter too much where you want to work. Stern is more regional, and honestly I see more Kellogg than Stern people anyways in top jobs, despite a lot less Kellogg people wanting to work in NYC than sternies.

I also went to Stern undergrad and wasn't a huge fan.
