CBS and booth are more finance focused and will have more roles. I’d edge CBS due to prevalence in NYC

Echoing S1. If they have got Pre-MBA PE experience, you can’t go wrong with either CBS or Booth.

Do you have pre-MBA PE experience? If yes, you probably have equal shot at all of these (maybeeee a slight edge to CBS and Booth depending on where you want to end up). If no, going to be hard regardless of where you go (even from HSW)

Not PE but my cousin is part of the Investment at a Infrastructure firm. Does it still count as investment experience?

CBS. Not impossible with Booth, but people who have been able to pivot into PE from Booth generally have an IB or PE background to start with.

I would pick CBS due to being in NY

CBS value investing program is the answer you’re by looking for.
