Mr. PE/VC Hopeful
Having been a programmer for a large portion of my life, I have begun to fall out of love with the idea of doing it for a career. My passion lies more within financial services. Coming from a non-target school I have struggled to find opportunities. Pursuing an MBA will not only help me develop the necessary skills but will hopefully open new doors. Following graduation, I will be working in the engineering department at a bulge bracket bank. Currently, I am looking at deferred MBA programs.

Post MBA Goal:
After earning an MBA I hope to either join a private equity or venture capital firm. My goal would be to find a firm that takes more of a hands-on approach with their investments. I want to be able to combine my technical knowledge and the skills I learn on the job and through my MBA in order to help cultivate younger companies.
