Last week, we examined the employment placement trends for the Class of 2015. As we await the statistics for this year’s graduating class, a closer look at the job function choices of the previous class is in order.
Consulting and finance topped the function statistics as well as the industry choices, as 31.0% of graduates accepted positions in consulting, and 27.6% did so in finance. Marketing was a popular choice as well, though notably less so—14.5% of the Class of 2015 took jobs with a marketing function. General management, business development and strategy, and operations attracted 9.8%, 8.1%, and 5.9% of graduates, respectively.
