Why IU Kelley Is A Target School
-180 kids do IB. Around 120 will be FO, while the rest are MO and BO. IBW and CMBW workshops are a straight pipeline to FO banking and it is doable to get into at least the CMBW with a 3.6+.
-Consulting is the most common job for Kelley graduates (hundreds of kids). These are mostly big 4 and boutique consulting forms, as MBB only takes 5 kids a year.
-Around 80+ kids are in asset management (position, not industry). The kids in the Invesment Management Workshop go straight to big hedge funds and big time ER, while the kids who aren't in IMW will still have nice ER and investment/wealth management jobs.
-Kelley Finance graduates last year made an average salary of $68,500. Let's Compare this to other Target Schools. Mccombs ($70,000), Ross ($72,000), and Haas ($75,000). Kelley is just right behind even though these schools place into NY and SF (High COL cities) way more than Kelley.
Think about this Harvard kids with a 3.5+ will get into top investment banks and consulting firms. Kelley kids need a 3.7+ to get into the top firms. Obviously, Kelley is no where near Harvard, but it's not too far behind some major target schools.
