MBA in Finance, Strategy & International Business

The University of Chicago Booth School of Business is a graduate business school located in Chicago, Illinois, at the University of Chicago. Formerly known as the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, Chicago Booth is the second-oldest business school in the U.S., the first such school to offer an Executive MBA program, and the first to initiate a Ph.D. program in business. The school was renamed in 2008 following a $300 million endowment gift to the school by alumnus David G. Booth. The school has the third-largest endowment of any business school. The school's flagship campus is located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago on the main campus of the university. The school also maintains additional campuses in London and Asia (originally Singapore, but in July 2013 a move to Hong Kong was announced), as well as in downtown Chicago on the Magnificent Mile. In addition to conducting graduate business programs, the school conducts research in the fields of finance, economics, quantitative marketing research, and accounting. Chicago Booth is currently ranked first in the United States by Bloomberg Businessweek and first globally by the Economist.

Career History
Managing Partner
2012 - Current

Taran Asset Management is a global long/short investor in the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) sector

Portfolio Manager
2008 - 2012

Alyeska Investment Group seeks to generate a consistent, long term appreciation of assets through the active management of a comprehensive, equity-focused portfolio which includes sector specific, market-neutral sub-portfolios together with various complementary equity-focused investment strategies. The firm employs both fundamental and quantitative analysis of publicly-traded companies and their respective securities. They offer advice on both long and short positions in a wide range of investment products, including equity, equity-linked, credit and credit-linked instruments. The actual instruments traded include stocks, corporate bonds, convertible bonds, options, futures, credit and equity derivates, and other credit-based instruments. Such instruments are traded on public exchanges or in private over-the-counter (OTC) transactions. Alyeska seeks to mitigate systematic risk embedded in equity securities through the deliberate construction of non-systematic portfolios. The funds may enter into various contracts or positions to further mitigate unwanted exposures. To reduce interest rate and/or currency risk, and subject to certain regulatory thresholds, the funds may enter into long or short positions in interest rate derivatives government securities (and derivatives thereon) and/or foreign currency spot and forward contracts. In connection with certain transactions involving convertible bonds and capital structure arbitrage, the funds may enter into credit default swap contracts. The funds also may buy or sell equity index contracts as specific or portfolio hedges. Derivatives contracts may be exchange-traded or OTC. The funds also retain amounts in cash or cash equivalents, pending reinvestment.
