An MBA from a reputable b-school will definitely allow you to successfully transition from IT into I-Banking. There are quite a few good schools in California that will allow you to make the transition (Stanford, Haas, Anderson, Marshall). You should look at the employment statistics to see how many people each school place into investment banking. Recruiting at Stanford and Haas should be very strong. Anderson and Marshall would be a little weaker, but still doable for the transition.

gmat2011test1,

I agree with the above comment; California has some excellent business schools. An MBA will also help you in a transition into investment banking.

Your lack of experience in finance will not hurt you in your business school application; schools are looking for a history of excellence, and this can come in any field. Finance experience is not a prerequisite for business school.

You should consider taking the GMAT test, as this is a requirement at most business schools.

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
