So I am looking to make a career switch into asset management, or more appropriately from back office into front office. I am beginning my MBA this fall and currently I am deciding between a full scholarship to Ohio State, Cornell (with no scholarship), or hoping to get off the waitlist at Northwestern, Michigan, or NYU.
If I choose to go to Ohio State, do I have any chance of landing a front office role in asset management? It doesn't have to be at any of the top companies, I know they don't recruit from OSU, but really any asset management company in Chicago would be fine. I'm just trying to gauge whether I am delusional in thinking I can go to OSU and still go into asset management or not. I currently work back office for one of the big banks in their mutual fund department, so I have some relevant experience I suppose if that matters.
