I did some work over the weekend to pull some consulting recuriting numbers from last year employment reports. I see some interesting trends...for example Kellogg & MIT is #1 by far for M/B/B, I guess Chicago and Columbia are more into finance. Michigan > Duke for consulting placement.

At this game, INSEAD is the winner by far (even compared to Harvard) :

See here (page 29): http://www.insead.edu/mba/careers/docs/ ... istics.pdf

Seeking employment reported = 717

McKinsey: 106
BCG: 35
Bain: 40
Booz & Co: 21
AT Kearney: 12
Monitor: 6
LEK: 4

Reported total > 243 (> since only the companies with at least 3 hires are listed page 29)

==> % reported total > 34% and % in top 3 M/B/B = 25%

Reported by school by function = 41%


PS: if I may, Deloitte and Accenture do not compare to this list. You give extra points to the likes of Duke by including them

Yes, Deloitte and ACN do not compare to this list. From the numbers, it also makes sense why lower ranked schools have higher number of hires for ACN and Deloitte.

What I've heard frequently on this board and BW was that many of those who go to INSEAD are McKinsey consultants who were sponsored by the company. Not sure if this was proven, but it could explain how that school places so well at M/B/B.

I also have heard this about INSEAD.

I think Insead's advantage doesnt come from sponsored students its the fact that its the top MC school in all of Europe. So they have tons of offices to feed into and not many schools to compete with. Some of the big 3's largest offices are in Europe so it stands to reason that they are going to hire a lot of students for them.

Just open the link I provided above at suggested page (29).

You have the number of former employees written. INSEAD is very transparent about this, which is not the case of the US schools (and I guess there are a lot of former McK/Bain/BCG employees at H/S/W too ;))

Edit : out of the 243+ people going in management consulting, 73 were former employees (including 58 from M/B/B!)

That is impressive. However, how realistically is it for non traditional background career changers to transition into M/B/B?
