1. Which T15? And which M7? Geography matters, as does school pipeline. Berkeley could place in tech better than M7. 2. Have you checked the schools' employment reports? If so, what did they indicate? It should be easy to see and compare how many people from which schools go to blue chip tech firms.

Anderson sends lots of people to tech so that's a good option. But of course M7 helps a lot

Go to Kellogg or Columbia...lifetime network also matters in the long run...this is your community for life

From my experience at a Top 15: - Amazon is attainable (hired >5% of graduating class) - Google was difficult (~2%) - Facebook was very difficult (<1%) - Apple, Netflix and smaller blue chips (e.g. AirBnB, Instacart, Stripe) were only snagging M7s

like

@Bcg1 yes checked that - issue is they often leave specific company names out & therefore hard to delineate true “blue chip” tech placement

I have various previous colleagues at Facebook & other big tech from California schools, so I think T15-25 in California can potentially get you in.... or just working in CA tbh We’re talking 1 went to Pepperdine PT The other went to UCLA PT Etc.

These people all worked in consulting with someone who came from the same firm and then that person was poached by Fbook. Both really good at what they did and I think the MBA knowledge helped surprisingly vs. Just the brand. I’d say the private M7 do better and the brand really carries a lot of weight. Outside the top privates, I’d go with CA schools given CA tends to think highly of itself and those from there. They also give you more direct exposure to that region and networking.

FWIW I’ve heard it’s quite difficult from either angle, unless you’re at H/W/S.

This is not true. M7 sends tons of people to top tier tech.
