Hi all,

I was hoping experts or current students could comment on which consulting companies recruit MBA students at Emory. Does MBB have much of a presence at Emory or is recruiting limited to the so called "tier 2" firms such as Deloitte, EY, PwC? Also if people could talk about starting salaries that would be great!

Thanks!
Hopeful

MBB does recruit at Goizueta but their total intake is fairly limited at the school (~3-5 people overall being recruited). Around 25% of Goizueta's class gets into consulting jobs, and yes tier 2 firms do dominate. However, that need not be a bad thing - some of the positions being offered by these firms are really good.

The median base salary for management consulting (2014) is reported to be $135,000. You can check out this link for more information: Goizueta 2014 placement report

Thanks GyanOne!

Would you happen to know if a lot of students end up at the Deloitte office in Atlanta? I'm interested specifically in the Deloitte Strategy & Operations consulting position and wanted to know if Emory is a target school for this sort of role. Any insight is much appreciated!

hopeful101candidate,

Yes, quite a few Goizueta grads in fact end up working in Deloitte's Atlanta office. Some of them also work for the Strategy & Operations practice too for Deloitte in Atlanta. This role, location, and firm can be targetted through the Goizueta MBA. Exact numbers difficult to specify, as they are not separately reported by practice.

As an aside, do also keep in mind that the S&O placements might be more opportunistic/need-driven than roles in other practices (more regular recruitment), so recruitment from one year to the other could vary just because of that.

Thanks again, GyanOne! I have one more question for you regarding consulting in general. I've done some basic research on numerous consultants' LinkedIn profiles and noticed that a large number of them have a background in engineering/technology. How important do you think is it to have this background to have a successful career in consulting? I understand that IT consultants would definitely need this background to be successful in their field, but what about general strategy management consultants? Do you feel that not having a tech/engineering background is a disadvantage?

hopeful101candidate,

Not really. It will really come down to the mix of skills and experience that you can present at the time of hiring. Engg/tech candidates do have strong numerical analysis and problem-solving skills, but there are always other ways to demonstrate that, for example through the projects you have done at work and of course through the case interview rounds you will have. Here's where your CFA L2 also gives you a bit of a spike. The activities you are involved in during the MBA program, as well as any internships you do will also play a role. You will therefore not be at any inherent disadvantage going into the placements/recruiting process without a tech background.
