Maybe a surprising answer but Tuck. Smaller class size but huge numbers to mbb every year.

definitely consider the office you target. chicago, boston, new york tend to be competitive given programs in the area: booth kellogg harvard sloan tuck columbia nyu wharton.

Tax haven

Fuqua - like Tuck above, a bit smaller and still sends large numbers to MBB across the US each year

INSEAD seems to do very well if we’re considering international schools

like

I would guess Stanford, Sloan, Columbia. They send more people to other fields like tech, so competition should be a bit less. They also are near offices, so networking is easy.

That’s fair, but my point was that there are plenty of East Coast MBA alums who now work in BCG WC offices (HBS, Wharton, Sloan, Tuck, Yale, and even Darden are all fairly well represented). CBS seems to be an outlier in terms of lack of representation, but I suppose it’s possible their students choose to go there because they want a post-MBA placement in or near NYC.

For any office outside the US, INSEAD

Booth obviously sends more people to MBB than any other school

As far as I can tell any in the top ~10 give about as good a chance as each other. Once you are in to the b-school you still need to get the interview and smash the cases.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?

My son is entering Kindergarten and his (great but hamstrung) public school can only offer 60-85 minutes per day for remote learning, 3 days per MONTH in-school. Just not feasible for a working mom in this industry. So I met some parents, we hired a private teacher, and I’m rolling with a 4-family homeschool pod. I’m keeping my kid in public school, hoping the curriculums can align and not go crazy. Love and strength to all moms and dads and partners out there. It’s tough - but so are we!

Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
