Goldman Sachs Technology Exit Opportunities

Rank: Chimp | 15

I'm a junior with a summer internship as a technology Analyst at Goldman this summer (Computer Programming some Applications for PWM). I've always wanted to do a more business-oriented career, I studied Information Systems because I enjoyed the course material, industry (tech), and hard programming skills.

I'm having a bit of an anxiety attack about being able to get into a top 15/20 MBA Program in the future. Would staying in Goldman Tech be a good option or should I shoot for a different career path for full-time recruiting this coming fall. Am I too late to jump into a management-consulting position post grad? (Doesn't have to be MBB, but second-tier)

Stats:

-BYU-- Information Systems, 3.69 (will be 3.7+ after fall semester, I'm done with the killer programming courses)
-Goldman Sachs Summer Technology Analyst
-2 Internships as a Data Analyst
-Part-Time Web Developer
-Started a small web-development company while in School this past year

Lots of great talent but it is a technology position, not business. That said I have a good buddy who is a programmer for securities applications who is heading to Columbia this fall. It's certainly not going to keep you out of business school if you have a good understanding of any you want to go to business school and what it will get you.

So if you want to work in programming, continue down this path. If you don't, then don't. You could also try to move into a position in one of the strats groups that does financial engineering/modeling coding. That's a good mid point.
