POST MBA GOALS
Work in equity research for 5-8 years and then start my own company


1) My wish list is: Chicago, Kellogg, Stern, LBS. Any chances to get admitted to one of these programs? I'll apply next Fall for class starting in 2009.

2) Any suggestion about second tier schools? I'm interested in a school with a solid academic program (mainly finance oriented) and also a strong sense of community. What about Tepper and McCombs?

Cheers, querty01

Hi Qwe...

Happy to help! With regards to your short and long-term post-MBA plans, make sure you craft a logical story of going from ER to an ER entrepreneurial venture.

Also emphasize the importance of the MBA at each milestone (i.e. how will the MBA help you in ER, how will help you start your venture).

Regards,

NP

Hi Nikhil,
thank you for your quick response.

Yes, I'd like to set up my own equity research firm, I have been too coincise in my previous post.

Your other tips are really insightful. Thanks.

Best,
qwerty01
