Hi all, I am trying to decide on my short list of possible schools to apply to and am considering Columbia. However, from what I understand, Columbia is more known for its specialty in finance (which I have no interest in). Should one still consider CBS even if they want to specialize in consulting? Are the resources the same?

Columbia has a very strong track in management consulting. In fact, it places the same number of graduates into management consulting as into finance. And MBB are the three largest single employers at the school.
