Semi-Comprehensive post about UNC recruiting (IB focused).
The following is a copy paste from a comment I made in another post about OCR at various schools. This is not meant to be totally comprehensive.
I go to UNC:
UNC is a target for GS, MS, JPM (before new no-networking policy), BAML, DB, and WF.
Non target for the rest. Despite that, UNC sends people ever year toand . Not quite sure about CS and . Anyway, in my experience Barclays alum are will pull for you. Same with UBS but to a lesser extent.
IMO, for a qualified candidate, your best bets will be MS, BAML, DB, and WF if you only network via OCR. Solid chance with GS (if you're top), Barclays, and UBS if you network a lot on your own with alumni. Have no idea about CS and Citi. Networking hardly helps anywhere for JPM now.
For consulting, McKinsey has some info sessions, and and I think Bain has on campus interviews. Not sure about BCG. McKinsey and Bain mostly take kids for Atlanta. over with no strong point at any single office. Accenture does on campus interviews as well.
For buyside, a lot of LMM or Boutique PE shops come on campus, but they don't actually take summer analysts. Big exception for OCR is Blackstone which did come this year and has taken summer analysts in the past but mostly takes for full time analyst.
Not really sure about MM IB.
I saw on the thread for UCLA how you pretty much have to get into a top club to break into IB. Not like that at UNC in my experience (someone with 0 connections before college). The main club is the Undergrad Finance Society (UFS) who typically host the banks. Anyone can join. They have an investing team with about $50k called the Portfolio Management Team (PMT) which isn't too selective. There isn't a strong correlation with being in it and placing at a . There is also they Reynolds Fund which has around $500k. People there typically due place well, but that's due to self selection more than anything else IMO. There are only like 100 kids per class who actually are serious about IB and even less that actually put in all the legwork needed. I'd say if you're a very serious candidate, you're competing in a group of ~70 kids. So very doable. I've seen some kids start going to OCR as freshmen. Maybe 15 at most.
Among the top 10 employers at UNC period are: EY, BAML,, , JPM, GS, and .
Hope than can shed some light on the finance/consulting scene at UNC.
Edit: I just saw all the typos. Not gonna bother fixing.
