Corporate Finance Rotational Programs for MBA

I'm trying to decide on b-schools to target so I want to get everyone's thoughts on legit corporate finance MBA programs. The idea is to get a list of F500 companies with these programs so I can then research these companies to see which b-schools they recruit at. For example, everyone has heard of GE FMP. I prefer companies headquartered or based on the east coast (NYC, Boston, or DC) as that is where I ultimately want to end up. I know that most of these programs require relocation during the first few years.

With a top MBA you can get into just about any program. Easiest way to go about this is just start googling companies you're interested in. FYI the FDP guide has a list of programs, but they're for undergrads.

Agree, most F500 companies have programs just google them. I just went through this process and will be interning in a position that feeds into a finance rotation for a F500. My school is not T16 and I interviewed with several F500 companies. I used the below CNN link to screen out companies by location.

As for "target" schools most companies look at programs within the region and will keep a couple positions open for non-targets. One of my interviewers told me he was surprised about my school because they normally only interview people from 5 schools, and not T5, just 5 within the region. I am sure HSW will get you an interview, but the companies do have clear preferences. It is just the nature of the beast.

I think it really depends on the region + the company. I know a fortune 15 company that goes HEAVILY at Mizzou and OU...

People come into the FLDP making 90k in the southern region, which is damn good considering cost of living.
