Employment reports don't seem to be very accurate indicator [#permalink] New post 30 Jun 2013, 01:17
Recently, I came upon this link on linkedin, which gives a really good breakdown of the type of industries, companies, countries that MBA students went into post-MBA (for a range of years).

It doesn't filter for EMBA or FT MBA but the results do seem pretty puzzling.

Take e.g Kellogg - % going to MBB from 2000-2020 : 138/1438 (of those in LinkedIn) = 9.5% vs. say Darden - % going into MBB = 45/334 = 13.5%

Hey ss87 - cool find - love stuff like that.

We didn't spend too much time digging into it but there's a chance that the schools are not just MBA. Yes, the name of the Darden program says "Graduate School of Business" but UVA has undergrad business/finance majors too, and a bunch of other schools in that dropdown list (NYU do as well.

Here's a rant we did recently on schools bloating their "size of our network" numbers, which is quasi-related to this.

We had a client geek out on these numbers about three years ago a bunch of years ago and he sent us a chart showing the MBB percentages from full-time programs (this was pre-economic crisis so things may be different today) - his numbers were Kellogg at 10.4% of their class. Darden was 5.3%.

Let us know if you uncover anything more on it.

I'm not sure where you're going with this, but anyone who thought Darden was in the same league as Kellogg for management consulting or NYU for investment banking didn't do very much due diligence.

But Darden is still a good school.

Hi Essay Snark - I guess pretty much all the profiles are FT MBAs for Darden but FT & PT MBAs for Kellogg so I am sure that would be skewing the results.

Lovelaw - I wasn't suggesting the percentages be equal for Darden and Kellogg. I was puzzled why it's lower at Kellogg which churns consultants by the truckload. Besides you need to do your own due diligence if you think Darden and NYU are not on the same "league" (or whatever that means) for IB. That's only because NYU is smack in the middle of NY. I am sure current Darden students on the forums have already mentioned how huge IB is at Darden.
As for Darden and Kellogg where I have seen a significant number of people choose Darden (with $$) over Kellogg as they felt both would provide them an equal shot of landing consulting (MBB)

Or just about equal.
Equal enough to take the $$$ and hedge their bet.
Also not all MBB posting are made equal from what I understand.
