Consulting Overtakes Finance At Booth

Chicago

NEARLY A THIRD OF THE CLASS TOOK JOBS IN CHICAGO

One slight surprise in this year’s interim report was a jump of more than five percentage points in the numbers of graduates preferring to stay in the midwest to 36.6% this year, from 31.4% last year. When it comes to where MBAs get jobs, geography is often destiny and that is true in the Booth numbers. Nearly a third of this year’s class—exactly 31.8%—ended up in Chicago, up from 27.7% a year earlier (see table on following page).

MBA accepting employment in the Northeast, meantime, edged out those going westward. Some 22.7% of the Class of 2017 landed jobs in the Northeast compared with 23.0% last year, while 21.6% went west versus 23.4% in 2016. The biggest decline in the west occurred in the Bay Area where 10.9% of this year’s graduating MBAs started their jobs, down from 13.8% last year.

Some 10.5% of the class accepted jobs overseas, down from 12.8% a year earlier, with the largest percentage headed to Asia. This year, Asia claimed 3.5% of the Booth class, down from 4.3% last year. About 2.8% of the class accepted jobs in Europe, while 2.4% took jobs in Latin America.
