Meet the Top Advisory/ Consulting Honchos You Should Target for 2024 & 2025 Internships & Grad Programs

Students can expect a better consulting headcount for summer intern and graduate roles in the upcoming recruitment cycle, even while investment bank hirings are catching up. This is because when investment banks/banks do poorly, they will think of ways to change their strategy, so they need consulting companies to provide professional advice for restructuring. 

But which top firms can you target this year & why? Check out these 2024 early rankings 

The ranking is mainly based on 3 criteria:

➡ Income

➡ Reputation: highest, high, medium, small
