1)I was hoping anyone could point me out to any books on amazon which address what are the possible career paths one can take up by choosing a certain mba course.
Ex: i was under the assumption for some time that a person who has taken up entreprenurship will not be accepted for a finance job on wall street. And this has got me worried thinking entrepreneurs can only apply for PE/VC jobs which are very late in recruiting and picky; round 4 or so after IB, Consulting rounds.
Thats a huge risk according to me to wait and let other rounds pass.
2)Are there any books which describe which schools are good for what?
Ex:Its a well known fact that Wharton/Col/Chi are good for finance, similarly i have no clue about other schools like ross, duke, tepper, cornell, texas-austin.
Because, in my opinion a major part why you get accepted or rejected has to do with A)knowing what you have and what the school is into.
B)Having atleast a distant idea of the possible career paths that interest you and that are possible based on your profile.
Yes there are career switchers but even for them i feel that their fit(whether the school is looking for the pofile you bring) into a school is important.
I am an international candidate without any mba background so spare me the slack.
If you found the reply to be helpful, give kudos.
