How to spin I-Banking full time job in 2+2/GSB application? [#permalink] New post 21 Mar 2013, 02:51
For college seniors like me who are going into finance full time for two years, what are some ways to make an application to HBS's 2+2 or Stanford's deferred GSB program attractive and suitable enough for admissions? I don't intend on doing banking for more than two years but it's definitely a great experience for students fresh out of college. Should we mainly talk about the career paths we wish we could pursue (entrepreneurship, start-ups, etc.)?

There is no magic answer and handling your career plans with each school has to be managed with care. However, investment banking is a great training ground for new college graduates and business school admissions understands this. They also know that the majority of banking analysts will not stay in the business after working in it for two years and after being exposed to new industries, experiences and ideas. Lastly, banking analysts often tend to be very intelligent and talented so entrepreneurial ambitions are pretty much expected in some way, shape or form.

Good luck on your quest to get admitted into these two great programs.
