"Investing" as career goal is bad for MBA apps?
I'm a current MBA applicant (looking to apply in R1 in September 2016) with a desire to use MBA to transition into a path to become a "good investor". I worked for 2 years as a macro investment analyst, 1 year as a credit investment analyst, and will have worked for 2 years as a vc investment analyst by matriculation. I really enjoy the intellectual aspects of investing; I want to use MBA to go to a better platform, and to build a career treck in a strategy I like. I used "" around the words "good investing" earlier because it is hard to define, but for me, it means something deeply value oriented, and rooted in understand businesses.
I recently spoke with an admissions consultant, and he told me that using "investing" as a post MBA career is not looked greatly upon by HBS and GSB. The reason he cited is that "stock analysts" are not really corporate leaders. I just want to check with you guys here in the forum on if this perception is true? Has anyone here applied with the post MBA career goal of becoming a good investor please?
