IU KELLEY MBB PLACEMENT

Prospect in Other

How does Kelley place in MBB? Would it be difficult to break into MBB from a school like Kelley? Does placement have bias in terms of location?

Kelley Investment Banking Workshop (IBW) aims to place people in banking not consulting.. and the IBW is a solid semi-target. Kelley also has a consulting workshop, look up these people on LinkedIn to see how they placed.

For consulting, IU --> MBB is quite uncommon if you are not a diversity candidate. Don't even think they have on campus interviews. Consulting is a prestige game (far more so than banking), and Kelley is a school with >50% acceptance.

Their banking statistics are quite good though I believe.

A quick LinkedIn "incoming" search shows:

FT: 2 McK, 6 Bain, 2 BCG
Summer: 2 Bain, 3 BCG
Another ~5 going to top T2s

Only 1 lists a diversity program and the rest seem pretty damn white/ORM. That's 10 kids heading to MBB, not 3-5.

Also, to the user who posted about "1-2% of IU Kelley consultants landing at MBB". I'd think about the drivers behind the denominator in that percentage. Big 4 advisory farms their incoming classes out of IU + other regional B1Gs.

These numbers are straight up wrong for MBB placement, as much as Bain is more willing to hire from nontargets....there are not 10 kids a year, there are maybe 10 kids total from Kelley currently working at MBB

Chicago is one of the top offices for all of MBB so if that's the local office for IU, you guys are getting screwed by it being more competitive than St. Louis or something

Also, your calculations are just so misleading. Any school would have a very high placement rate if you filtered out the clueless or incompetent people...

It's so strange to see the lengths Kelley kids will go to make their school look elite. Kelley accepts like 40% of all kids, and IU accepts like 75%. MBB is so elitist... obviously IU is not a target for them
