Travel and Leisure PE?Does anyone know which PE/VC shops have a travel/leisure focused group? KSL Capital Partners seems to be one that comes up right away in search - any other places? Thanks. 1 4 years 8 months

Would you stay on after 2 years if you could?If you were asked to stay on with your PE/VC firm after your 2 year stint, would you? (As opposed to going back to bschool.) I've always thought I would go to bschool then come back to the industry, but lately I've talked to quite a few individuals who left the firm they were with (some were... 18 1 year 10 months
GMATClub vs. HereI started preparing for my GMAT a few weeks ago and went on I must say I'm impressed by how supportive the forums are! Everyday some stupid noob goes on and asks, "How can I get a 770 on the GMAT"" and the moderators + members point them out to the same links, give the same advice,... 3 6 years 1 week
Stanford vs. Wharton/Booth/Kellogg if you DON...Is it still a smart decision to go to Stanford if you don't plan on staying in the West Coast? Harvard is my first choice, but if I don't get in, is Wharton/UChicago/Kellogg better if I want to be in the Midwest or East Coast?

Knewton offers a 50 point increase or your money...Knewton offers a 50 point increase or your money back. I would recommend using them if you didn't get the GMAT score you want the first time though. For example, someone with a 680 is guaranteed to get a 730 or the course is free - not much to lose by trying if you fall into this category. 23 2 years 5 months

However, they have the most organized system of filing people onto trains I've ever seen - people actually form LINES according to the markings on the ground, as oppose to Beijing where it... 64 2 years 9 months

I've invested in energy and healthcare before but have since exited those industries (well, more like started to dabble to a bunch of other ones).

Agree with CompBanker - be careful of this...Agree with CompBanker - be careful of this opportunity. Small firms tend to throw titles around very generously because they can't afford to with compensation. I worked in VC and saw a lot of pitches - some of the backgrounds of the executives are pretty unimpressive. Simply put, anyone can start a... 13 3 years 4 months

I previously worked in growth investing (but not in RE) and now at a top MBA - most of my skills are on the investing side and not industry. I heard mixed things about real estate investing - some say it's... 14 3 years 4 months
