Consulting giants and major financial institutions now compete with fintech startups for top talent
Graduation is often an exciting time when finishing an MBA. Historically, one of the rights of passage for such graduates would be offers from consulting firms. Major financial institutions, likewise, would also be recruiting from this pool. Within recent years, however, a new industry is eagerly hiring business school graduates. The financial technology industry, also known as “fintech,” is sending representatives to networking events. These representatives, often from small startups, are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with recruiters from established consulting firms and well-known banks, and all three have a respectable chance to secure talented new employees. Increasingly, hungry fintechs are the ones luring MBAs away from larger organizations.
