Wharton vs. Columbia vs. Booth
Hi, I wanted to hear some opinions on these three schools for banking recruitment. I'm probably looking to do 2 years in Investment Banking in NY in a BB and then come back to Brazil to work in PE Megafund.
Current BG is 2 years in ER at a local bank and 2 years in PE/ Impact Investing
The way I see it
Wharton: Pros - More elite for PE job medium term, Stronger network in the region and stronger academics - Cons Living in Philly for two yeras
Columbia: Pros- Being in NYC for networking with bankers 24/7, Strong recruitment in BB IBD (Goldman, Citi) Cons: Living in NYC is really expensive, Campus is terrible
Chicago: Pros- Living in Chicago, Strong recruitment and careers office, Reputation on the rise Cons: Insignificant network in PE
Thanks for your thoughts all!
