Top Business Schools for Corporate Finance/Consulting Career [#permalink] New post 17 Sep 2010, 03:47
Hi,

I was wondering what the best MBA programs are for those that want to become executives of companies or get into management consulting. I know some schools have more of a finance concentration, such as Wharton or Booth, but which ones are top notch for creating executives or high-level strategy consultants? If you all can also include MBAs outside of the M7 (but also include the top ones within them), that would be great as well, because I don't think I'm competitive enough for the M7.

thanks!

If you're geared for MC, pretty much any of the top 10 b-schools in US can take you there; it simply depends on how you spend your time at the school. Outside of top 10, you're looking at a harder figure to get in MC, but chances are still quite good. Basically, all top MC companies recruit at top 10 schools. Whether the institution is finance-heavy or not (such as your examples, wharton and booth) is irrelevant when it comes to MC recruiting at the top schools.

Check out Ross, they have good consulting placement. They are pretty well rounded in terms of placement.

Isn't there a separate ranking for consulting or finance on the USNews rankings?

HBS mints consultants. As far as top level executives that really varies - there used to be a strong trend of HBS C-level executives at Fortune 500 companies. That has since diminished a bit. I have also seen a number of consultants come from Tuck and Fuqua.
