Firm Name vs Group Strength in B-School Admissions
I was wondering how much emphasis is placed on the name of the firm compared to the group. In my case, I ended up selecting a EB over two IB BBs due to the landing in the top EB's group with a large amount of exposure to private equity and private credit markets. Now I look towards B-school (M7s), I am worried that I will be seen as a weaker candidate due to the EB name not carrying as much weight as BBs.
Do B-schools admission team care more about the name (> ) or the role (financials sponsors>coverage)?
