Jacob Shin

MBA Link


Iโ€™ve worked in both public/nonprofit and finance/asset management for the past 15 years. But even before starting a formal professional life, I worked for and then built my own undergraduate admissions business while working full-time in economic policy research and advisory. That consultancy sent every client to his/her first college of choice. After business school, I worked in Private Equity and also worked as one of Manhattan GMATโ€™s first instructors. I then joined the World Bank to restructure their pension fundโ€™s investments in hedge funds. I stayed in the asset management industry for 12 more years, including serving as Managing Director of three firms. I returned to education earlier this year with MBA Link as a partner and consultant.
