Equity Research out of MBA

Hi everyone,

I was recently accepted to the MBA program at Stern and am considering equity research as a post MBA path. I have a passion for markets, and while I am not so keen on the idea of focusing on one sector, I recognize that ER positions are a viable path to future opportunities in investment management, hedge funds, and the broader investment community. I would ideally like to get in somewhere covering maybe an energy sector since the research would have macro implications. Anyway, I was wondering what to expect in terms of real opportunities and what roles would be available to someone in my position (assume very little applicable valuation experience so far). I'm curious what an MBA candidate's job would be going into ER versus someone coming out of undergrad.
