Warwick vs Imperial, career in Consulting


Both of these institutions seem to rank quite high overall, with one or the other ranking higher depending on where you look. Any recommendations when it comes to pursuing a career in Consulting? Are they close enough that I should be focusing on secondary factors in order to decide which one to prioritise? I'd appreciate some guidance :)

Yes. Consulting is such a vast field with probably thousands of firms focusing on various areas / niches. You will have a hard time at the best firms (MBB) if that's your goal and these are the only schools you are looking at. 

Pick a handful of realistic firms that you would like to work for and then check LinkedIn: are there grads from either of these schools working at those firms? How many?

Would say Warwick. They should have more alumni working in those fields.
