Best MBA for PE in TexasSubscribe
I'm a first year associate at a MM PE shop in New York after doing 3 years as a BB IBD analyst. My long time girlfriend is from Houston and has made it explicitly clear that she would like to move there if/when we get married, which is my intention. Personally I have no ties to the state.
I will be applying to MBA programs next fall so my question is what schools are best for TX PE recruiting? I have a 3.6 GPA from Cornell and 740 GMAT. People occasionally get into HSW from my shop but in my case, there's nothing really eye popping about my profile.
Outside of HSW, what schools would be best for recruiting in TX? From skimming Booth/Kellogg/Columbia profiles, they don't appear to send many grads to TX. And after perusing this board and others, Texas McCombs seems to get praise even though it's not top 10. I'm in healthcare so I would probably also need to learn energy to work in TX PE but please correct me if that's wrong.
Essentially, what M7's have the best presence in Houston or is Texas/Houston some anti prestige place where Texas McCombs is just as good?
