    not bad for undergrad business ranking.

    but keep in mind that a lot of prestigious schools dont have undergrad business programs.

    Like all of the prestigious school minus Wharton.

  • grandpabuzz's picture

    Emory, Notre Dame, and BYU are not better than UT or UNC....

    /homerism

  • yphrums's picture

    Lehigh, WF, WashU, BC, and 'Nova are not better than UIUC Business.

    And yes, I have BBAs from all of those schools.

    anybody else get photographed when bw photographers went around to each school to get headshots of students?

    lol classic

  • GGekko's picture

    the only person who would say UIUC is better than WashU STL is the one who didn't get in.

    Though I did hear UIUC had great placement with McD's and Steak-N-Shake management training programs.

  • Kimbo Slice's picture

    is nyu undergrad really that low?

  • Patrick Bateman's picture

    Haha UIUC...there is like one analyst from this school at my BB whereas the others mentioned are much better represented...delirious.

  • grandpabuzz's picture

    "BYU, ND, and Emory are better than UT"

    Maybe as a university in general but not the undergrad business school.

    False. I chose UIUC over WashU because WashU was $25k more per year and the girls were hideous.

    Is Emory a pseudonym for Embry Riddle?

    Never knew that had a business school. Thought they were just aeronautical.

  • hgilmore's picture

    No Emory as Emory in Atlanta, Georgia.

    haha they probably don't have ice bomb night either

  • GGekko's picture

    there are likely more attractive girls at UIUC, but most of them return back to the farm after college.

    At WashU, you get what you pay for, probably the same at UIUC.

    I had no Emory kids in my BB bank for the summer or for FT. I'm sure the education/facilities etc. must be stellar tho.

    Lots of Emory kids go to HF straight out.

  • ihatemarketing's picture

    out of ~800 student class

  • ssb101's picture

    so over 20% of the graduating class work at BBs/Mckinsey..

    I'm curious for any Wharton/ivy alums...Are BB ibanking jobs a big deal at your schools? ex. If a guy gets a job at GS or MS at Wharton is that even considered prestigious. Or do the best people at these schools try and go for private equity/hedge fund gigs...and those are the ppl that get the respect?

    Reason I ask is because if you get a ibanking job at any canadian school, people think your hot shit and everyone in the program knows you as the guy who got in Goldman or the Morgan guy. But with these stats for Wharton it seems like ibanking jobs aren't even a big deal

  • jotah's picture

    rankings like these are for the most part subjective and unreliable

  • ivybanker's picture

    Keep in mind that of the 19 at MS from Wharton, only around 7 -8 might be IBD.

    I go to Wharton (graduating this May). Getting a bulge bracket banking job isn't simple because you do still need a decent GPA (usually 3.3+; 3.5+ for some of the better banks). But, it's not considered a huge accomplishment to land a job at any of the bulge bracket banks. Of my friends who are good students, about 75% that wanted bulge bracket banking jobs got them. The people that aren't successful in landing BB banking jobs despite good grades are bad interviewers or socially inept..they end up at places like Jefferies, RBS, Barclays, etc. (not the end of the world by any means).

    Goldman gives out a good amount of offers (they gave out 50 something internship offers last year across all divisions..probably like 30-35 of those were for banking), but people who get jobs there are still somewhat "admired" versus people who get jobs at other BBs. You're "admired" if you land a job at Goldman, Morgan Stanley, Lazard, or Greenhill. You're really admired if you land a job at Blackstone (Blackstone is regarded very highly at Wharton..and I'm just talking about the M&A and Restructuring divisions). The truly exceptional students are those who land jobs at Blackstone PE, Silver Lake, Silver Point, HBK, and 1 or two other places along those lines. Those places give out maybe 1 or 2 offers to Wharton students, and perhaps 1 or 2 offers to Harvard students. I don't think anyone at Wharton got an offer for HBK this year; I believe 1 person is going to Blackstone PE (he interned at Goldman and is obviously a top student); 1 person is going to Silver Lake (he interned at Lazard is also a top, top student); and I'm not sure about Silver Point or any other HFs/PE firms that recruit on campus (I think I pretty much covered it..I didn't see any other top HF/PE postings on PennLink).

  • aznwwsd's picture

    how's berkeley regarded amongst BB recruiters? i know BBs recruit at berkeley before they recruit at stanford (at least for summer internships), which surprised me... anyone know anything about why?

  • -----'s picture

    Berkeley (Haas) are considered very solid.

  • Seanc's picture

    1. Wharton
    2. Michigan
    3. Berkeley/NYU

    The rest I don't give a shit about, anyone who puts out a different top 3 is a crackhead.

    MIT I didn't put on there because to my understanding, It has a different type of UG B-School.

  • NYCHoops's picture

    i have never heard that term before....

  • Seanc's picture

    UIUC = University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign

    I heard they have some bad-ass partying up there

  • -----'s picture

    UVA is legit- let's not forget them.

  • GGekko's picture

    can you provide some info on Silver Point?

  • Greed2317's picture

    Gilmore's my last name, biotch! There's not room for the two of us, dog! Greedy Gilmore #1, BABY!

    scotttwibell's picture

    on the rankings for undergrad business programs. Emory, ND, and BYU get shit BB recruiting.

    I'd put

    4. Virginia
    5. Texas/UNC

    However, in order to land a job at top PE/HF out of school, you have to be at harvard or wharton. A few PE/HF recruit at Michigan, but minimal at best. The same can be said for Virginia.

    FYI, UIUC (not great school for banking), but you'll see more of their grads as analysts in Chicago than Washu or ND. All 3 schools suck for NYC placement.

    Emory does well with Bear Stearns and B of A, both firms that are barely BB. Heck, the school has to pay for hotel rooms to setup interviews for their students. Great school, I tell ya. LOL

  • GGekko's picture

    WU many moons ago. Not a big BB presence when I was there. I hear now that nearly all the BBs are recruiting analysts there for NYC & Chicago (more NYC). I've also heard Emory (not EMBRY RIDDLES, LOL)fairs well for analyst recruiting.

  • madgames's picture

    This year they placed:

    GS: 3
    MS: 1
    Lehman : 4
    Citigroup: 5
    JP Morgan: 3
    Bear Stearns: 4
    Merrill : 1

    Its no Wharton, but not too bad for a small school if you ask me.

  • jj80's picture

    is that emory as a whole or just their undergrad b-school program? if those stats are for emory as a whole, the school is pretty damn big

    Undergrad business. They have about 250 in a graduating class.

    Emory is more renowned for its pre-med programs.

    BofA doesn't recruit there. Bear, ML, GS, Citi, JPMChase, LB, Wachovia, Suntrust, Wells Fargo recruit on campus.

  • Mis Ind's picture

    Wasn't Emory #4 among undergrad b-schools this year according to the table at the top of this forum? Doesn't seem so bad for such a small school.

    Perhaps take a look at the other ranking criterion i.e. 'girls' and 'cost'. This list was based solely on prestige, but thank you for sharing your college decision with us. Oh, and please don't take offense to this, I am simply here to point out that your contribution was irrelevant. I am sure you will be very successful and gloriously wealthy someday.

  • titanboxer's picture

    I don't know too much about the banking recruiting, but I do know its not impossible because there are numerous alumni that have successfully made it. If you network it can be done, and if you couldn't afford an extra 100K over four years, well it makes sense. I know this is the ibanking board, but i want to do S&T and pretty much all of the prop trading shops recruit on campus, and Microsoft hires more people from uiuc than anywhere else. like i said I know that doesn't help BB banking, but its possible. plus rent in Chi town is like half of Manhattan
    and girls here are hot

  • sumanlst08's picture

    that list is MUCH diff. than us news & world report...odd
