Top Feeder Companies to Wharton’s MBA Program

Top 25 Feeder Companies For Wharton’s Class of 2013

It’s not surprisingly, perhaps, that McKinsey & Co. is sends the largest single contingent to the Wharton School. As much as 5.5% of the entire Class of 2013 come from the prestige management consulting firm. One of the world’s largest consulting firms, McKinsey is not merely a feeder to Wharton. It is also the school’s top recruiter, having scooped up 44 MBAs–roughly the same number of McKinseyites (46) estimated to be in this year’s incoming class.

Wharton has long been one of McKinsey’s most important sources of talent, according to Steve Kelly, a McKinsey partner who is Wharton’s recruiting leader. On the firm’s website, Kelly maintains a section on Wharton recruitment. Among other things, it notes that more than 60 partners in the firm are Wharton alumni and that there is at least one Wharton graduate in 71 of McKinsey’s more than 90 offices.

Seven of the top dozen feeder companies into Wharton are consulting firms. McKinsey is followed by No. 2 Boston Consulting Group, No. 3 Bain & Co., No. 7 Deloitte, No. 9 Booz & Co., and tied at No. 10 Accenture and Oliver Wyman. The big financial players are well represented as well. Led by Goldman Sachs, which sent an estimated 18 to Wharton, four of the top 12 firms are from finance. Following Goldman are No. 4 JP Morgan, No. 5 Morgan Stanley, and No. 10 Barclays Bank.
