I graduated a 2.5 years ago with a Ms in RE Finance, no stellar gpa (3.4). I currently work as a Credit Analyst for a Middle Market Commercial RE Lender. I see an incredible amount of deal flow, packages and I have been involved in several transactions & closings.
I've been looking at a Professional MBA part time program from UT Dallas, its current ranking is #96. But it offers concentrations in Energy and Finance, both of which seem enticing to me.
I'm not concerned about trying to get into a top tier MBA program cause I figured I would just try to pull a high GPA from this school. Bolster my resume with an MBA and try to break into a different (but sorta related) field like something with O&G? or maybe REPE? Worst case, I would be ok with a /MS/a life company.
Would I have a realistic shot at an associate position within IBD or PE? Even without a top tier MBA?
What other options would an MBA present me with? Personally, I like Real Estate but I wouldn't mind the challenge of learning something new.
