How is Haas' reputation in the Finance world? [#permalink] New post 04 Jun 2013, 22:34
Looking to concentrate on Finance for my MBA. Just wondering what is Haas' reputation in the Finance world? Do people coming out of the program land top Finance jobs? Do the big IBs from Wall Street recruit from here? What are some firms that hire people from Haas?

Graduating students from Haas, who accepted jobs in the financial services industry was 14.3%.

Business Week has published the best b-schools by specialty. See the following list for Finance:
University of Chicago
Harvard University
University of Pennsylvania
Stanford University
Northwestern University
Duke University
Cornell University
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
University of Virginia

If I were you, I would speak to the students and alumni of these schools before finalizing them.

I chose Haas over Booth, but I might have chosen differently if I wanted to break into IB or PE. That said, Haas seems to be well-respected in Finance (U.S. News ranks it #8 in Finance and a Haas professor won the Nobel Price for Economic Sciences in 2009), especially on the west coast. If you want to get into a west-coast banking firm or PE firm, Haas will definitely get you in the door. If you want to go to Wall Street, I’m sure you could still get the opportunity, but my guess is it would be easier if you were at a Chicago, Wharton, or Columbia.

According to Haas’s 2011 employment report, about 16% of grads went into Financial Services (5% IB, 2% Commercial Banking, 6% Investment Management, 1.5% PE, 1.5% Other). Only about 5% of the class moved to the Northeast after graduating, and I suspect a lot of those are Wall Street (the average salary is higher for that region). JP Morgan was the only finance firm in Haas’s top ten employers for 2011. You get the idea – check out the same employment reports for other schools you’re looking at to compare. I think if you're looking to be on the west coast or want to blend finance with tech, Haas would be great. Otherwise you might be better served a little closer to New York.
