Stern, assuming you have Wall Street aspirations. That said, Charlotte is a bustling financial hot spot thanks to Wachovia and BofA, so if you were interested in those firms Fuqua wouldn't be a bad choice.

That's true, and Fuqua certainly has great access to Charlotte, though I would point out that even with banks based elsewhere, most of their big stuff goes down in their NY offices.

Well, all of Wachovia's IB divisions are located in Charlotte, while BofA's are split between NY and Charlotte; off the top of my head, I believe fixed income is in Charlotte.

gidimba,
What area of finance do you want to get into?

My interview at NYU is coming up. Any tips?

NYU seems pretty solid for finance. The location means you're close to many high-level jobs with lots of alumni in the area to help you get those jobs. One NYU student I spoke with said there's an emerging-market debt group at Lehman (or something similar) that was nearly all Stern grads.

Also, it's easy for big-time speakers to drop by, and the students get to work on actual company problems. Lots of advanced finance electives and good profs too. Plus great clubs (esp AIM with the student run portfolio) and a good amount of on-campus recruiting.

I'm not sure if it's the right place for me though, because for family reasons, I want to live in the West right after graduating. I think that going to NYU and not living in New York right after might not make a lot of sense. But we'll see. I'd like to work in research for some sort of mutual fund, hedge fund, or endowment after getting an MBA.

Stern also has an Emerging Market Association as a club, I think there is a correlation with Lehman Bros' group.

AIM is one of the major factors I chose Stern as my #1 target. It's definitely a unique opportunity.

And my interview is coming up too!

I thought that B of A's I-banking was split between San Francisco and Charlotte?

Not sure about San Fran, it is certainly a possibility. That said, I know for a fact that BofA has IB divisions in NY and Charlotte.
