Australia MBB Suggested Recruitment Routes?

Hi everyone,

I am currently an Australian high school student, who just finished the HSC. I am planning for accepted entry into Sydney University for a Bachelor of Commerce. I am looking to break into management consulting in my future, with a focus on an MBB. What would be the suggested route / grades / subjects / summer internships etc to take to maximize employment possibilities. 

Also, I'm planning to do an exchange for possibly 6 months, what countries have the best business prospects?

If you want to get into MBB with a straight commerce degree you are going to have to get incredibly strong marks and have some pretty good extra curricular achievements (or vice-versa). Most MBB hires are Comm/Law or STEM types who you will have to compete with. MBB likes people with diverse backgrounds, so a variety of internships could suit e.g. niche corporate strategy roles, investment banking/equity research and technical roles (engineering, data science etc.). I wouldn't put all your focus into getting into MBB, there are relatively few spots and a lot of other interesting careers you should consider in tandem with MBB.
