Yes

Yes

Yes. Depends on location.

Ross is, unsure about the rest.

Yes, Darden may be a stronger than the other two but all three should give you a good shot.

Fuqua would probably be your best bet here.

For everywhere except NY, SF, Boston, Chicago (ex-Ross).

How’s NYU Stern for NY MBB?

I'm having the Fuqua vs Ross debate and I'm so confused. Both have great cultures and similar recruiting for MBB. I'm leaning towards Fuqua because the Duke brand might be better but idk 😂

They’re not but tailgates are super fun

Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

Why is ACN strategy unnecessarily selective? They only recruit from a select few schools (no exceptions) even if at another top school. MBB/Deloitte/OW/Parthenon/LEK/ATK have much greater flexibility.
