Good Afternoon Folks,
I am interested in doing the Northwestern 1 year MBA program and would like to get an idea of where I stand as a candidate.
Undergraduate University: Southern Methodist University
Degrees: BBA Finance with Honors , BA in Economics
Overall GPA: 3.85 (Magna Cum Laude)
Post undergraduate position: Investment Banking Analyst
-Spent 1.5 years at a strong capital markets focused investment bank where I worked on numerous lead IPOs, High Yield issuances and other capital market transactions along with various strategic alternative proposals. Was offered a third year position at this bank and declined. Shortly thereafter I accepted an identical position at an "elite boutique" M&A focused firm in order to gain more experience in strategic advisory. So far the experience has been very strong.
I am currently approaching the end of my second year and would look to apply for admissions following my third year.
I like the idea of a 1 year MBA because I want the MBA as I progress in my career but do not want to spend too much time away from work due to the opportunity cost as well as the fact I would likely get the same job after my MBA as I would be able to get without my MBA.
Please let me know if you would like me expand on anything else.Posted from my mobile device
