Booth part-time for Investment Management [#permalink] New post 15 Sep 2013, 15:04
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.

Thanks.

I have talked to few current part time students and couple of them left their jobs 1 year after joining the program and actively look for internship opportunities. One gal had 3 done internships and was doing 3 courses per semester. Overall response was part-time students have same access to all career services but less networking opportunities with peers.

Were these people able to get internships in investment management? Since part-timers don't have access to ocr for internship recruiting, how did they go about finding those jobs?
