Post MBA goals
To work in a VC as an Investment Analyst; and thereafter in some years start my own business

Primary reason for an MBA
To gain international exposure and make a shift to the VC / PE space

I have been offered a finance role in one of the portfolio companies (series B Company – funded by Seqouia) of the VC fund with a decent pay and some stocks.

I am inclined to take it – majorly because of the pay, as at the VC firm I don’t see any growth financially

I am looking to target Schools
- Kellog (one year MBA)
- INSEAD
- LBS

Please do let me know my chances and whether taking up the job at the start up would impact negatively my chances to a B School

Thanks ….

Thanks for sharing your profile. Really nice profile here with strong work experience. You are pretty light on the ECs so I would see if you can identify some additional leadership opportunities in this area. These are top schools so every little thing matters.

On the job front, since this job aligns a bit with your LT goals around being a part of an entrepreneurial company I would go for it. Just keep this narrative in mind come application season
