Been searching the forums and the Internet for a while now and I haven't really found a discussion regarding what majors are favored by MBB.

Also, I have seen a lot of industrial engineering majors in MBB, but no business majors. Are these looked down upon or something?

    If you're talking about undergrad majors... the last case team I was on, the associates had degrees in industrial engineering, business, and English.

    Generally speaking, your best bet is an engineering degree, but a liberal arts degree is not at all disqualifying if you're otherwise a great candidate.

    Going to chime in and pose a Q, why do you think business majors aren't as marketable (this being taken at face value, no one major can seal one's fate as different candidates are different) ? I have met more soft science majors than business. Thoughts?

    Business doesn't teach you how to think, its also an incredibly easy major

    Exactly.

    You're basically clutching at straws once you get past MIT and Penn.... maybe Michigan, Georgetown, UVA, Cal, NYU.
