jisip@ChicagoBooth.edu

PhilippinesUndergraduate School/Major: I graduated from Columbia University with a degree in physics.

Prior to Booth: Prior to Booth, I worked for two years in management consulting at Oliver Wyman and for two years in risk and portfolio consulting for banks at SunGard.

Concentrations: Economics, finance, and strategic management.

Activities: Member of the Investment Management Group, Management Consulting Group, and the Hedge Fund Group.

Career plans: I am recruiting for investment management.

Why did you choose to attend Chicago Booth? I chose to apply to Booth because of the national/international presence, the unique rigor of the academic program, the diversity and quality of the student body (in terms of geography, work background, education, etc.), and the breadth of opportunities available to students upon graduation.

Use three adjectives to describe your experience at Chicago Booth: Eye-opening, challenging, and rewarding.

What do you consider a "must visit" place or "must do" activity in Chicago? Eat bone marrow and red onion jam on toast at the Gilt Bar, go to a concert by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, have dim sum in Chinatown, take a stroll through one of Chicago's many farmer's markets.

Ask me about...: Switching from consulting into investment management, or about living in Chicago versus Los Angeles versus New York.
