Hi,

I am about to finish my BSc in Industrial Engineering and I am looking for a MSc in a target school in Europe from which MBB usually recruits. Is there any target university/ relevant degrees you can suggest me that would let me continue studying Engineering Management or Industrial Management Engineering (or similar)? Or would I be forced to switch to a BSchool in order to stand a chanche?

The fact that I want to continue studying engineering is purely a matter of personal interests.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Anonymous,

the list of universities depends on the geographies you are considering, it would be useful if you could mention your target language/geographies for some specific suggestions. You can also easily check this on LinkedIn, selecting people working in MBB or their alumni and checking which are the most common Engineering universities they attended.

You should also consider the following:

  1. You may be able to apply after a bachelor to MBB in some countries
  2. You would join MBB in a different position if you join after an MBA compared to after a Master

Best,

Francesco

Hello!

You can totally apply after your BSc -in my Business Analyst class, about 50% of people came from masters and 50% came from Bachelors-. Don´t do a Masters only for the purpose of having better chances at MBB, since it´s a huge investment of time and money.

Which offices are you thinking of? Language can be a huge differeciator here.

Cheers,

Clara

Hi,
it depends on the country. Engineering is great for consulting and I recommend to look for the top engineering school of the MBB country you would like to apply for (i.e. Cambridge/Oxford/Imperial, TU Munich, ETH Zurich/EPFL, Politecnico di Milano, TU Delft, ...)

Best,
Antonello
