HS senior fortunate enough to be able to choose between Wharton and Stanford for my undergrad studies. Interested in working in IB/PE in NY. Never was interested in VC until Stanford became an option. Generally want to work in New York, however. If I go to Wharton, do I have to get an MBA to make the transition from associate to VP at a Bulge Bracket? Is a Stanford Engineering undergrad and later MBA combo better long-term? I understand that I will have many of the same recruiting opportunities and both schools, but some PE shops recruit exclusively at Wharton (not going to base decision off of this however, due to the incredibly low odds of landing these gigs).
Would appreciate some industry input about this! Thanks in advance.
