I could use your help and advice. I will start college in Fall am looking to pursue a career in Finance (Investment banking or management).
I've narrowed my choices down to four schools:
- UCLA (business econ)
- UC Berkeley (Econ)
Pros about going to a school like UIUC or IU-Kelley would be the tailored workshops such as IBA at UIUC or IBW / IM at Kelley. but the negative could also be the lack of recruiting outside specific workshops if I don't make it into the workshops.
Berkeley or UCLA might give me a great band but UCLA doesn't have a business school option for undergrad and at Berkeley have to apply to Haas after sophomore year (so not guaranteed) and the banking jobs might be a lot more competitive here?
If cost or distance from home or job location are not primary decision factors, would like your input on what you would do in my position. Thanks in advance.
