Headquarters: New York, N.Y.
Hiring plans: During its last hiring cycle, Deloitte brought on almost 250 MBAs as full-time employees, and about 130 interns. While the firm provides a variety of financial services, such as auditing and risk management, about 85% of new MBA hires join its consulting practice, which is planning to boost hiring by 50% next year.
What they're looking for: Deloitte starts recruiting MBAs early on by hosting case competitions, where students get to strut their problem solving skills by working on hypothetical cases that they might encounter as Deloitte professionals, said Rick Harrison, head of recruiting of the firm's consulting arm.
And beginning this summer, Deloitte will offer a month long internship and a three-day summit designed specifically for MBA candidates who have yet to start school.
Participating in those types of programs can lead to a summer internship at Deloitte, Harrison said, and that's where the company finds 70% of its full-time hires.
Once an MBA does secure an offer from Deloitte, they'll have a chance to work on a project with the non-profit organization MBAs Without Borders, which works with small businesses in developing countries. MBAs are a top source of talent for the company. In fact, Punit Renjen, who joined the company as a senior consultant 22 years earlier after graduating with an MBA from Willamette University, was appointed as chief executive of Deloitte Consulting last fall.
