Yeah they do earn a lot. I would rank traders, IB, MC in this order.

As with most well paid jobs, your soul belongs to the firm, at least when you start out.

usually a good degree from a top university is sufficient.

The top firms are Bain, BCG and McKinsey.

Don't know about Accebture, but for top firms I think you need good degrees (magna cum laude and above) or MBA from Oxbridge or Ivy League universities or MIT, Stanford.

But I may be wrong.

Accenture's strength is in doing systems integration consulting. Basically, IT projects.

Accenture is previously known as Anderson Consulting.

Strictly speaking, they are not doing management consulting. It's more "IT consulting" if you ask me.
