The Running of the Bulls: Inside the Cutthroat Race from Wharton to Wall Street
Designer: Brand: Gotham
Forbes journalist Nicole Ridgway takes an up-close look at the stressful and ultra-competitive job- hunting process at the world-famous Wharton School as seniors vie for coveted positions at top investment banks and consulting firms, and attempt to become the next generation of Wall Street power brokers. The #1 ranked Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania is the only Ivy League undergraduate business program in the country, the alma mater of such moguls as Donald Trump, junk-bond king Michael Milken, and Revlon CEO Ron Perelman, and each year it graduates five hundred overachievers all striving to become the new barons of Wall Street. The Running of the Bulls is the first intimate look inside this unique institution, and Ridgway presents an unforgettable portrait of a culture in which a $120,000 education is an investment that needs to produce immediate resultsâand not landing a job at a prestigious bank like Goldman Sachs is the ultimate failure.
