It should come as no surprise that finding work on Wall Street is a career goal that most finance students share. Because of Wall Street, New York City is commonly referred to as the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world.

Home of the infamous New York Stock Exchange, it’s no wonder production big wigs put out several Wall Street-based Blockbusters every few years—from Oliver Stone’s Wall Street (1 and 2) to Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, there’s no lack of praise where jobs in lower Manhattan’s Financial District are concerned.

So how does one land a job on Wall Street? As it turns out, most of New York City’s Financial professionals have something in common—a finance degree from one of 11 school.

According to Emolument—a crowdsourced salary comparison website—these are the top 11 finance colleges for those seeking employment on Wall Street:
