The Complete List of Investment Banking Target Schools
The school you go to is the #1 factor that influences your chance of getting into investment banking. A top target school like the University of Pennsylvania sends 5 to 10x as many people to Goldman Sachs as a semi-target school.
We scraped 15 years of LinkedIn data to examine which schools place the best into the top U.S. investment banks. We organized this data and ranked schools based on their # of Total Hires and the Undergrad Placement %, which examines the proportion of students that break into investment banking.
The target school list and full methodology can be found here.
