    After all of your constant threads on this issue don't you know by now? Yes, Manchester and particularly Nottingham will be there. They are of the country's largest and leading universities (with great business schools).

    Oxbridge dominate for places like Mckinsey and other management consultancies.

    The banks (mainly) target: Oxbridge, UCL, LSE, Warwick, Imperial.

    Oxbridge, LSE, Warwick, Imperial and UCL are generally the most targeted universities by financial firms, with Oxbridge giving you a significant advantage when it comes to the top consultancy firms. Graduates from other universities such as Bristol, Nottingham, Durham, Manchester, City university (mainly CASS business school) are also highly sought after.
