A: The McKinsey & Company report shows that the majority of MBAs in 2016 took finance, accounting or consulting roles. These are still among the best paying careers for MBAs. If you’re interested in money management and think you could be successful at it, then it might make sense to go into finance. This is because finance tends to pay well regardless of your background (it’s not very dependent on what class you were in), but if you know how to manage people and resources than it can be a great route for lawyers with business backgrounds who want more power over their clients and projects. In fact, many companies will hire from top law schools solely based on an initial job offer from a big firm where they have been hired as an associate after graduation rather than apply through regular channels like other firms do when hiring from law school graduates.
