bb how should someone approach this table if they're not sure whether they'll go into consulting or tech? As they have been doing a bit if both in their career. How should they choose target schools then?

It’s a pretty simple choice. You can pick a school that’s good at tech or you can pick a school that’s good at consulting or you can pick a school that’s equally good/bad at both. But you can’t have everything at the same time 😂 but you can use this table to see which schools focus and are strong and what areas.

If you look at Tuck for example, it’s one of the best programs for consulting but it it has the lowest numbers for tech placements among the entire top 20.

PS. You will have to make a decision about where you want to apply to and with what goals. Don’t apply with wishy-washy I’m open to everything type of a thing…. you want to be determined and focused and project confidence in your applications.

hahaha rightly said bb. but what to do I'm human who wants everything at the end of the day, cant help it
Guess will look at schools like fuqua and kellogg which are good enough at both. Good point on tuck, I was actually thinking if I want to apply or not.

everyone in business school applies to multiple recruiting paths. Usually two because it’s quite hard to do more than that. So it’s totally fine to recruit in consulting and tech as a field the timelines are compatible… someone closer to it can correct me 😇

This is also 2022 data and 2023 will look quite a bit different for tech. I have seen Fuqua change in 2023 and there was a substantial drop in tech recruiting because there was essential drop in tech recruiting 😱

I’ll put together an updated sometime in December when all of the business schools hopefully release their employment reports. At the same time, I’m not sure that one year of a slowdown in tech is even a good data point…

PS. Yes, everyone wants a Ferrari sports car with capacity of a dump truck 😂

Hahahaha bb you echoed all my thoughts, exactly a ferrari with the capacity of an indian truck with the price point of a two wheeler. LOL.
but yes looking forward to the december report but although by then would have definitely zeroed in all the schools I'd be applying to.

if someone wants to pivot from a tech consulting background to an MBA in finance, first of all, is that a good or realistic pivot and secondly, how difficult that pivot can be in any B-school?
