I’m always looking to get ahead in my life. That’s why I’m always looking to other people for inspiration, and what they’ve done in their lives that I can emulate in my own experiences. That’s why I’ve turned to Jared Haftel, and what he’s done. After reading some of his posts online, but then also following him on social media, Twitter especially I recommend, I’ve learned a lot about what he has to give to others looking to become successful in business.
Jared Haftel is an investment banking analyst who is currently attending Stanford University in order to obtain a Master’s degree in Business Administration. Haftel has obtained Bachelor’s degrees in science, mathematics and economics in order to give him the foundation necessary to get the most out of his investment banking endeavors.

Haftel first obtained a number of Bachelors degrees from Duke University. While at Duke, he studied science, mathematics and economics. These subjects have given him a knowledge base in order to apply concepts to investment banking. His knowledge gives him a versatile amount of knowledge which can help him give investment banking firms someone who can solve problems and find ways to help the firm reach its goals. Since investment banking is centered around the overall economy, his knowledge of economics gives him the theoretical understanding of how the economy works and how his firm can get the most out of its transactions. With a degree in mathematics, he possesses advanced knowledge of quantitative concepts to make calculations while analyzing financial securities as well. This combination allows him to help firms make the most profitable deals.
Once Haftel completed his studies at Duke, he began his career as an intern at the firm Credit Suisse. This is one of the leading firms in the industry and it therefore gave him a great start to his careers. His experience at Credit Suisse gave him instant credibility and a way to get him other jobs in the future. After he completed his internship at Credit Suisse, he would then get a job at the prestigious firm Merrill Lynch where he was an investment banking analyst. While he was at Merrill Lynch, he was responsible for analyzing commodities particularly metals, chemicals, mining, defense and aerospace. He then worked at Bank of America as an investment banker and is currently an associate at Vector Capital. Which of course cut into his time with his dog, but it’s worth it for the opportunity.
While Haftel has gotten as solid education as well as extensive experience in investment banking, he has decided to further advance his career. As a result he has decided to and is currently attending Stanford University in order to get a MBA. With this degree, he will have even more credibility and access to opportunities in the investment banking field. Since getting a MBA is important to advance in the investment banking field, Haftel realizes that this is a great opportunity to get what he needs to reach his career goals. Stanford University has one of the top MBA programs in the United States and therefore gives Jared an excellent opportunity to get the best knowledge and credentials possible in order to reach his potential in the investment banking industry.
