Mars and Co MBA InterviewHas anyone interviewed/worked at Mars and Co or know anyone that has and can shed some light on the experience. Finding info is impossible and I might have a final round coming up soon. I just have no idea what to expect from the case. For example, BCG/Bain cases are driven by the interviewee where... 1 3 years 2 months

I also posted this in PE forum bought thought some Hedge Fund guys might have insight as well. 1. Do preferred rates pay off total invested capital or off total invested capital less the placement fee. For example, if... 2 weeks 13 hours

Peru Elections: A Case Study in Emerging Market...I have been living in Peru for the past two years and have been able to learn so much about the country, culture and economy - there is so much more to Peru than Machu Picchu. Unbeknownst to me, and probalby most for that matter, is that Peru has had a white hot economy for the past decade. Its... 9 4 years 11 months
Bschool: Loans vs. SavingsI did a search and couldn't really find any good discussions on this topic. But for those that are applying and those that have completed an MBA how do you/did you pay for school. Did you dip into personal savings or only use loans. I have about 1/3 of the cost all in saved up but don't know... 9 5 years 3 months
Thoughts on NYU Stern - For those the knowWanted to see what people in the know thought about NYU. I have applied to Columbia, Wharton, Kellogg and Duke and was thinking about doing a last minute NYU application (basically all of my essays will crossover). How is NYU perceived. Is it basically considered the school that Columbia kids... 4 5 years 3 months
What's going on at Columbia?This is too funny and pretty damn sad. Apparently first year wannabe bankers at Columbia need to be told about personal hygiene and how to dress. http://dealbreaker.com/2010/10/columbia-reminds-b-school-students-to-brush-teeth-remove-tacky-cufflinks-before-interfacing-with-potential-employers/ 11 5 years 6 months

There are countless reasons why Non-GAAP is way more relevant than GAAP. GAAP is particularly misrepresentation of the going concern of in M... 15 5 days 17 hours

I had a IB/PE background and now work at a HF, yet I had an overweight on operations, supply chain and strategy type classes. I believe that whatever you will use on the job you will learn on the job in so... 12 1 week 22 hours

It was using third party technology and procedures already in existence. The goal, I'd imagine, was to do so while the core tech was fully commercialized. This was highly misleading... 9 1 week 2 days
You are correct in having to cover the interest....You are correct in having to cover the interest. I personally find this to be pretty "scary". We don't do shorts but from speaking with friends I believe generally you will do a pair trade where you will go long a high ranked security (say first lien) and short an unsecured. The interest from the... 77 2 weeks 5 days

Things change and you may not in fact want to get an MBA / need to get an MBA. Wharton will provide a superior undergrad education... 12 3 weeks 1 day

In regards to straight work and output, I'd totally agree that you time can better be spent elsewhere. Peace Corps is just as much about a cultural exchange/immersion as it is about doing work. So if work... 21 3 weeks 4 days
