Not all training is done in a classroom. Many times, institutional knowledge, cultural values, and complex concepts are transmitted one-on-one. In these informal settings, Bain & Company boasts a decided edge. In fact, its 9.846 score in Informal Training and Mentoring is second only to its score in its selectivity of hires. Bain's score also represents another improvement over last year's performance, where the school ranked #1. Clearview Healthcare Partners grabbed the #2 spot. Putnam Associates fell out of the Top 5, losing nearly .4 of a point in the process. It was replaced by the Keystone Group.
