Hi,

INSEAD is known for placing high percentage of graduates into consulting. But part of that is because some students were already working in consulting before entering INSEAD or were sponsored by consulting firms.

If we are only talking about converting those with no consulting experience to consulting, I wonder if INSEAD is still very strong in that regard versus other top US Bschools?

Further, I am curious how INSEAD prepare students who are interested in switching to consulting? What is the secret ingredient?

Thanks,
Will

I suspect that consulting firms have arrangements with universities to recruit a certain number of students each year. A fairly good student might have better chances of breaking into a top consulting firm if he/she were to aim at a school targeted by consulting firm and in which he/she is above the average among the students within that school that are aiming for consulting.

1) The "we will finance a one-year party/vacation MBA for you provided you return to us for a few years" argument. Many students that go into consulting are ones returning to their previous employer (many likely to be sponsored). A one year program reduces the cost for the employer in both tuition and "idle" time. These students can guide/help/refer others in the program looking to break into consulting.
2) Each class comes from various countries, thus, there are more students that have an ability to do consulting in a native non-English speaking region.
3) Big and well distributed current network of alumni that do consulting across various countries.
