You’re going to hsw and want to go into banking? Get into PE or VC if you can. Regular banking can be done from any b school

No idea but I wish you luck!

Also on a serious note - reach out to people you know in IB ask about what MBA associates do there, identify industry/product/practice you like, prepare your pivot story. Take a crash course in financial modeling and finance skills courses over the summer.

Think about what “group” you want to be in. If it were me, I would try to recruit into Allen & co, qatalyst, GS/MS TMT/evercore. I am in tech now, so that’s my thought process

If you’re at HSW and want a banking job, you’ll get a banking job bc it won’t be competitive from HSW. So just chill.

Especially if you’re at HW, tbh if you’re at S wanting to go into banking I assume you probably won’t have a hard time getting interviews just won’t have the community to prep with since so few go into banking from S

Hi All, Recently got the opportunity to "grow our ESG/CSR" practice at a small regional consulting firm, due to my recent grad certification in sustainable strategy. Wondering where I should focus us as a services industry for big impact - we have a large product innovation, engineering area, and know in the past we've had a lot of lip service to clients and only recorded ESG for their compliance. Hoping to make a big difference and include CSR/Sust audits for our client projects! Any tips?

Does anyone know why I lose more weight when I eat 2000 calories vs when I eat 1200 calories? For reference, I am currently 5’7 F and 128 lbs. I cannot work out for another month due to an expiring CPA exam so I am definitely losing muscle mass. When I calorie count, I account for every little thing such as the vegetable oils or the tbs of salt. The 1200 calories is usually an extremely large meal + fruits + soup. The 2000 calories is usually a meal from a restaurant + fruits + a sandwich.
