Mr. RE Investment

About Me:

After graduating with a double Master’s Degree in France, I joined a top American developer opening its first office in Paris as an Investment Analyst, then associate. I have been heavily involved in their first successful fundraising (€1bn) and first acquisitions (2 deals totaling €160m of RE value). Post-MBA plan is to transition to a RE IB team.

Undergrad Major: Finance

GPA: 3.0

Work History:

Title: Investment Associate

Industry: Real Estate

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 3 yrs

Big Life Wins:

Post MBA Goal:

Post-MBA I would like to join a bulge bracket (Real Estate Investment Banking Team). My background to date has all been in the real estate investment space and I feel now too close from assets. I was initially envious to join an investment banking team and I would like to use my REPE experience combined with an MBA to do so.

    Bonjour Mr. RE Investment!
    I think your real estate focus and track record will be very attractive to Columbia. This is Debbie Choy from mbaMission.

Be sure to articulate what specific skills / knowledge you’re seeking at Columbia that you haven’t learned on the job, or at EM Lyon Business School. Also be sure to confirm with AdCom that you are indeed eligible to apply since …

    Mr. RE Investment – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus.

    I admire your commitment to RE! CBS has fantastic resources and initiatives in both the investment and RE space so is a great school for you. While your stats (especially your UG GPA) are below the average, I suspect that you may have converted a GPA that was not on a 4.0 scale to a 3.0. DON’T DO THIS! Just submit the GPA that is on your actual transcript.

    Given that you already have two master’s degrees (If I’m reading your profile correctly), you need to clearly show why you need an MBA. I’m thinking that perhaps you need to go deeper in finance which CBS can offer. Since you are looking to …
