I'm a late 20s software developer looking to make a career switch into finance. I don't want to continue programming and I find markets much more interesting than code. I've decided to apply to M7 schools.
Top 100 US Bachelors of Science in CS 3.7 GPA
3 years working as a software lead at startups and 3 years as a contributor at an F500 before that.
I took the GMAT in college and scored 40Q 50V. I figure I can raise my Q significantly because I didn't really prepare.
What I want to know is what roles haven't been already closed to me for post-MBA? I know that something like PE is out because of my background. I'm quite interested in Equity Research, but I've been advised that isn't such a good route to take. I don't know if I could handle the stressful hours of IB. Management in tech seems obvious, but I don't think I'd find it very interesting.
Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
