Ever wonder where Wall Streeters come from?
It turns out that many of them — at least the ones based in New York City — went into finance from one of 11 schools.
That’s according to Emolument, a salary benchmarking website that collects self-reported pay data.
Emolument surveyed 1,541 NYC-based front- and back-office investment banking professionals. It did not include staff like those working in HR or communications.
Beyond these 11 schools, there were another 1,000 or so reported in Emolument’s database, but each represented less than 1% of Wall Street professionals.
Here are the top colleges.
