SumZero, a social network dedicated to the buy side community, crunched the numbers and came up with a list of the universities boasting the highest number of graduates at the very best hedge funds.
SumZeros conclusions are based on a survey of its 11,000 membersa sample size it considers large enough to be representative of the 100,000 to 110,000-person buy side community.
Luke Sciefelbein, head of data science at SumZero, told CNBC they created the top fund category using a combination of rankings.
We compiled a list of top hedge funds, according to both total assets under management as well as fund performance, from multiple independent entities, includingBarrons,Bloomberg,Pensions & InvestmentsandInstitutional Investor, said Schiefelbein.
The most highly represented schools on SumZero are similar in order to those you might find on a U.S. News ranking, but the schools with alumni that are most successful at getting jobs at top hedge funds show a much different order, Schiefelbein said. This suggests that top funds might be much more comprehensive in their selection process above and beyond simply identifying those that went to the top schools.
SumZero calculated a batting average, representing a colleges success in placing graduates at top hedge funds and here are the results.
