Why an MBA?
Why Javier chose his MBA program:
Before making the decision to attend Chicago Booth, Javier worked as a lawyer. He wanted to make the switch from his law background to the financial world. To gain financial knowledge and experience, an MBA was the perfect direction for him to go. His Chicago Booth education gave him the tools needed to make the switch.
The transition from law to investment banking was made smooth for Javier through Chicago Booth's alumni network. The strong brand of Booth made it possible for Javier to find a family of Booth alumni at his new job at Evercore.
