I know the topic of part vs full-time has been debated several times before but wanted to hear input from various people.
So I'm currently working on a successful startup with an equity stake, thereby preventing me from doing a full-time MBA (since I will lose out on the deal if I go full-time). The co-founders are going to sell the startup in roughly 2 years or so. After that, my involvement with the firm will be over, and I'm hoping to transition into investment management.
I'm fully aware that full-time programs are ideal for career transitions. However, given my current situation, a full-time program is not feasible. Moreover, at Chicago Booth, part-timers get access to OCR for full-time jobs once they've taken 12 classes. Obviously I would have to work harder to get that initial job coming out, but after that, it won't matter too much since I will have a Booth MBA on my resume.
I'm curious to know if anyone has experience with IM recruiting as a part-time student at Booth or even finance recruiting more broadly speaking.
