Hey guys, I'm a new member here. I have been accepted to the Mays School of Business and I would like to know your thoughts on how a Mays MBA would help when it comes to entering investment banking. I currently work for an investment bank, but as a risk/reporting analyst for derivatives and equity capital. Ideally, I would like to enter the industry as an IB Associate or Equity Research Associate. How realistic would this goal be with an MBA from the Mays School of Business? I have also been accepted to the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University. I received comparable scholarships from both schools. Would one of these schools be considerably better than the other for someone who is trying to break into IB? This decision has been killing me! Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

May's 2015 stats say 24% went into finance/accounting roles, but nothing more concrete than that. My advice would be to try reaching out to the career services center and some 2nd year students. Broad had an even lower number. I think it will be a matter of networking and hard work on your end to break into those roles from either school. The may's network is supposed to be fantastic and was one of the big draws for me when I applied, so dig a little bit deeper and hopefully you find your answer.

Personally, I am waiting on word from a few schools in March and will be deciding then. The cost of May's is really attractive though! Good luck
