Looking for information on Stern and Columbia [#permalink] New post 29 Apr 2013, 07:21
Hi,

I am not in the finance field right now but I have a finance undergrad degree, and I want to get an MBA to move into finance, preferably in the tech industry. I know that Stern, CBS, and Wharton are great in finance so I want to go there, but what other research will help me so I can find out if these schools are a good fit for me, and which one I would prefer? I've been reading everything on their websites and they are all great, but are there any books that I can buy that give me the low down on these schools? Every book I've found on this site tells me how to get into business school, rather than finding the right school to apply to. Thanks for any help!

Hi Financefella,
You have rightly said that Stern, CBS, and Wharton are great for pursuing a career in Finance. For exactly understanding which school would be fit for you, you can do internet research. Do read about the qualities these schools look for in their students. Interact with the alumni of these schools. Read the interview and school-life experience of people who made it to these schools. Some people have shared their experience in gmatclub.
Also, you could go through the following link for interview and B-school experience from alumnus of those schools : http://www.interviewbay.com/interview-tips.php

Best of Luck!

You should check out the Poets & Quants comparison of NYU and Columbia. http://poetsandquants.com/2010/08/16/new-york-universitys-stern-school-vs-columbia-business-school/ It's a decent comparison of the two programs in New York.

As for who sends more of its graduates into finance, Wharton, Booth and Stern have consistently been the top 3 in the US. Maybe you could cross reference that with who performs well in producing tech-specific grads. Good luck!
