Just hoping you fellow monkeys could help me out with a serious concern that's been bothering me. I recently received an offer for an Equity Research Associate position at a major bank but the reason why I haven't been able to take the offer yet is because I'm afraid this career track would jeapardize my chances of getting into a top MBA program.
I thinkcould be something I can possibly handle or even enjoy, but the greater goal would be to earn a top MBA (H, W, S) and transition to corporate strategy at a start-up. I'm concerened because the top programs don't seem to like wall street professionals too much these days and i think it's even harder to find examples of people with ER backgrounds getting into top MBA programs.
Any light you guys can shed on this would be much appreciated.
