McKinsey Outpaces All Other Employers in Hiring MBAs from Kellogg, Chicago Booth

Consulting firm McKinsey & Co. hired more 2013 MBA graduates from both Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business than any other employer, Crain’s Chicago Business reports.

Forty-six of Kellogg’s 750 graduates headed to post-MBA jobs at McKinsey, and 41 of Booth’s 579 graduates did the same, Crain’s reported, citing annual employment records from the schools. McKinsey has been the largest employer of Booth graduates for five years running. Kellogg can almost make the same claim, except that Boston Consulting Group hired three more graduates than McKinsey in 2010.

Kellogg 2013 graduates edge out Booth graduates just slightly in terms of average starting salaries. The 2013 average at Kellogg was $120,903, compared to $115,000 at Booth, Crain’s reports.

Of course, Kellogg’s median 2013 salary was helped by the fact that one grad landed a position in investment management in New York at the staggering salary of $375,000, the highest of any graduate of a top business school this year.
