Fordham MBA and consulting


msals
Hello all,
So I'm planning on starting my MBA soon and have been really interested in Fordham. It seems like a very good program and I like its location. I'm wondering if anyone has any insight regarding their MBA as it relates to finding a job in management consulting. From the research I have done already, it appears as if only about 10% of their graduates go in to consulting, with the majority going in to finance. Is this because their program does not lend itself towards a career in consulting or because most people just choose not to pursue that field? Is there any other 2nd-tier B-school in the Northeast that would be more preferable for my career path? Thanks for your time.

I'm not sure why only 10% of the Fordham grads end up in consulting. Might be a good question to ask the admissions people.

As for alternative 2nd tier schools in the northeast, have you looked into:

Boston University
GW
Carnegie Mellon

All of those have at least 20% of grads going into consulting jobs.

10% end up in crappy tier 5 firms. Not MBB caliber ones
