  • observation is that the top ten employers account for 28 of all people that have graduated from Kellogg in the past ten years That is to say the biggest employers are hiring a lot of students 2 Second the consulting industry is far and away the largest hirer of Kellogg students over the past ten years Of all the students that went to top ten employers 81 of them went to consulting firms Not that this comes as a surprise given Kellogg has long been known as one of the strongest schools for those that want to recruit for the consulting industry 3 Third of all those that went to consulting firms 73 went to the Big Three consulting firms Bain BCG and McKinsey From an absolute standpoint that means that about 17 of all the population went to big three consulting firms And of those nearly double went to McKinsey versus the next closest firm which was BCG 4 Fourth it is quite surprising that neither high tech firms nor marketing firms played a large role in the top ten list as only Microsoft and Johnson Johnson represent those functions On the other hand it s probably likely that the next ten employers are dominated by marketing and tech 5 Fifth financial services firms e g Investment Banks also didn t play a very large role Two banks made the top ten list Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch but combined they have less than 10 of those that went to top ten employers Perhaps on the surface that s not surprising because many people don t consider Kellogg to be a finance school But on the other hand the finance major is the most popular major at Kellogg 6 FINALLY services firms generally generally accounted for 90 of the

  • be going into marketing and consulting Others will be pulling long hours in the investment banking industry And others will test their leadership skills in general management positions start ups and nonprofits Geographically speaking Chicago is always a popular summer choice The Facebook group that I administer currently has about 135 people in it which is the highest of any geography for summers As you might suspect New York and the Bay are also very popular choices for summer internships for Kellogg students Though as you might not expect places like Los Angeles Minneapolis and Boston are also fairly popular choices Personally I am staying in Chicago and I just started one of my summer jobs this past Monday 13th which was a pretty popular start date for my classmates Like many of them I ll also be working in the consulting industry and fortunately I recently found out that I won t be traveling all that much for the summer For the second half of the summer I ll head back to the legal industry again not only to get more legal experience but also as a way to keep both options on the table for next year But perhaps more important for me is the fact that I ve got a few big picture things on my mind too As a 2012 McCormick Scholar I have the opportunity to do a research project for both Kellogg and Medill And the idea I have in mind is quite big Furthermore I also have an idea that I might undertake related to the JD MBA program so check back periodically to see how that idea play out Either way it looks like for me as well as for a lot of other Kellogg students the work doesn t end with

  • is sleeping but that also wake you up at 5am when the sun hasn t risen yet In business school they re the ones you skip the best party of the year to work on when everyone else is out Over the past two to three years I ve done my best to always have a WIG I had one coming into the JD MBA program in law school my first year I had one this year at Kellogg and pursued it even in spit of core classes and recruiting And I have a new one now that I am working on for twelve to fifteen months In my view some things in life are worth spending the extra time on Fine tuning every detail for Becoming an expert at And giving it your all Because as you continue to progress in your career the competition gets harder and the people get smarter And as a result it become much harder to achieve all your goals Especially the worthwhile ones that the smartest people pursue So if you want to do well sometimes you have to hone in And if you want to hone in then you have to make a point to pay special attention to it especially in the midst of all the chaos surrounding you at school and at work One way to do that is by identifying an important goal well ahead of time and then working relentlessly to achieve it That s what I mean by WIG So what s your WIG What woke you up today at 5am And will you be up at 5am tomorrow working on it again I m sure your competition will be Saturday June 18th 2011 Business School Law School 21 Comments Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson

  • all JD MBAs go into business In fact at Northwestern the split has historically been closer to 50 50 where about half go into law and the other half into business and sometimes more than that the summer As such I ve decided to come up with a list of some of the possible reasons a JD MBA student might make this decision Note that the list is not comprehensive Further the bullets on the list also may not represent prevalent reasons that students choose Instead it s simply a list of some of the things that came to mind as I was writing the post Law firms pay a higher average base pay out of graduate school You re going to be an associate anyways and you prefer writing and reading to doing math Your background and or skills are more aligned with the legal profession The law firms wined and dined you during recruiting and you couldn t resist this could apply to anyone You know that you can always move to business fairly easily if you don t like law You have an interest in government or politics and think law seems like a logical first step You want to learn deal making but don t want to be an investment banker or work in private equity You re used to working long hours so you were up to that challenge You watched Law and Order growing up and always wanted to see what it felt like to be a lawyer You want to try it out for the summer and plan to recruit again next year if that doesn t work out Many of your JD MBA classmates decided to try out law so you didn t want to miss out FOMO Your parents were lawyers

  • from more and more people And ultimately taking on more deliverables with quickly approaching deadlines that would seem unreasonable to anyone not in business school Here s the schedule Follow it Here s the email documents for tomorrow Read them all by 9am I just sent you ten calendar invites Accept them And be on time And because you have multiple deadlines everything becomes more important so you speed up Working like a machine for a machine boss in a machine company with other machines coworkers who are all doing the same thing And eventually the goal isn t to produce a great work product But instead to take on more workstreams than before to work more efficiently than last time and to make better powerpoint slides and excel models And once you finish that then you can do more So in some ways the MBA has become the new assembly line You move things forward as fast as you can The work becomes more specialized to help you speed up so you only take part in a small part of the process And things more automated Likewise the work also never stops Just like Toyota never stops the line a company s project flow doesn t stop either They find more people to do more small parts Buy new systems to increase their efficiency And leverage operations technicues such as optimal batch sizes flexible resources and critical path times to keep the line moving as fast as possible But what if your company stopped the line on purpose tomorrow And instead of figuring out more deadlines to give you instead allowed you to spend all of tomorrow thinking about mind blowing innovations for the company And what if your job wasn t simply to hit twenty deadlines but instead
