Early glimpse - Consulting'11: Where are top firms recruiting?

Most B-schools do not yet have their 2011 employment reports on their websites so this is an early glimpse of the most important employers of the top MBAs. This data was recently reported by the schools to Bloomberg BusinessWeek which asked schools to list their top hirers for the Class of 2011 (see tables below for the results).

McKinsey & Co., the largest single recruiter of MBAs from top schools, significantly expanded its hires this year at Chicago Booth, Duke Fuqua, Michigan Ross and Berkeley’s Haas School. The global consulting firm’s got its largest supply of recently minted MBAs from Chicago Booth and Columbia Business School where it brought 39 MBAs from each school aboard, according to an analysis by Poets&Quants.

Rivals Bain & Co. and Boston Consulting Group, meantime, found Northwestern University’s Kellogg School an attractive hunting ground. Bain hired 24 Kellogg MBAs, up from 17 last year, while BCG brought aboard 30 Kellogg MBAs this year, the highest number for any top reporting business school. Bain also hired 18 MBAs each from both Wharton and Chicago Booth and a dozen from Columbia.

*BizSchoolPrep's Comment: Do consider the class size of the schools while looking at these numbers*

A blank space in the table means that data is not currently available on their hires from the school because they fall below the top ten hirers on that campus.
