MBB’s Top Feeder Schools
Mar 28th 2022 - 07:1371 0
In management consulting, the combined prestige of McKinsey & Company, Boston Consulting Group, and Bain & Company is well-known. They're known collectively as MBB, and they've long been the top three employers for college students looking to break into the business.
MBB leads the pack in a slew of job satisfaction ratings, according to employee reviews of leading consulting firms. These include overall employee satisfaction, professional growth opportunities, career advancement opportunities, feedback on job performance, and fairness in how workers are treated. It could be the chance to work with great minds in the consulting industry, with MBB ranking first in WSO's senior leader competency rankings.
Whatever the case may be, the MBB trio is a massive draw to undergrads looking for their big break in consulting.
Target schools for MBB: 10% of the Consultancy hires are from the top 5 school
According to field employees, Northwestern University (home of Kellogg Institution of Management) is the top feeder school to a top-tier consultancy company. Northwestern University received 2.2% of the 1,577 WSO survey respondents. That's 35 WSO users currently employed in the business, down 14% from Northwestern's share in the previous year's survey.
In fact, according to the February 2022 report, the top five consultant feeder schools are separated by only 0.3%, which is around five workers. As a result, any of the colleges listed below have excellent consulting pipelines built into their degrees.
Choosing the Best MBA for Consulting Beyond MBB
Now that we've looked at which colleges send the most students to the top consulting firms, we'd want to go deeper into three institutions and their opportunities for applicants interested in consulting. Darden, Kellogg, and INSEAD, the three schools we chose send the highest proportion of their students into consulting. Two of the schools, INSEAD and Kellogg, were previously mentioned as feeders to MBB consulting.
