I understand that these roles are pretty different. However, which of these analyst positions are better from an exit option standpoint:
JP Morgan Asset Management
JP Morgan Public Finance or
JP Morgan IB Risk?

Which would be better for getting into a top Business School? Which would be better if one wanted to move to the buy side after an analyst stint?

AM would be my suggestion. Definitely not Risk.

Could you elaborate? What are the pros of AM and the cons of Risk?

Seeing as how JP Morgan Asset Management is on the buy side, I think that accepting that position would be a great way of getting to the buy side.

Snark aside, by buy side I'm assuming you mean "PE/HF" as everyone on this forum tends to, in which case I'd still recommend Asset Management.

(Note: This assumes that JP Morgan's AM division is a full-blown money manager, and you're not just doing Private Banking. I don't know what the names of each division are in this particular case).
