Undergrad Business: IU Kelley Indiana Vs. Fordham

There was another post on this, but I wanted a more recent opinion. I have gotten into both Kelley and Fordham with a finance major, and was wondering which was better for placement on Wall Street for IB. I like both colleges equally, and cost is not a problem. Thanks.

Don't listen to this guy - Kelley wins out by a long shot

Kelley by a wide margin. Haven't come across a single Fordham alum on Wall Street but there are tons of Kelley guys. My EB hires a few every year. Just work hard and get into their workshop.

Kelley. IBW if you want to work in IB is crucial but places lights out - can get good consulting, corporate (f500 fp&a/strategy), and even tech jobs if you do well there.

Not worth considering Fordham imo
