Don’t think we get many from either. Maybe 1-2 folks a year in NYC. Assume most folks from those schools would go to south or Midwest.

Brother neither are targets for NYC

Neither school makes you a better target for NYO. More importantly, please don’t pick your b school, where you will spend 2 years of your adult life, on crowdsourced opinions that it might slightly increased your chances for a job offer in specific office at a tiny set of firms.

What?

Both are good schools for consulting, don’t think you’ll go wrong either ways.

Any specific areas to make sure I upskill to check the right box? Any tips on how to make it work?

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.

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
