What are the steps needed to break into private equity without a finance background?

#Investing has always been a part of my life whether it be #real-estate-investing or #stocks-investing . I went to college for #engineering but will soon be attending a top ranked #MBA program. I was hoping to learn a little bit more of how people break into the #PE field.

What does it take to build and run a new apartment complex?

Hello, I've all but decided that apartment complex ownership is the business I want to start with as an entrepreneur. I'm currently working toward finishing my associate of arts degree, taking business/economics/accounting classes to assist me with the technical aspects of starting the business. I plan to graduate in spring of next year. After graduation, I'm going to allow myself some time to save up money for a down payment on a loan. Along with these plans, I have quite a few ideas about how I want to run my business (between floor-plans, amenities etc.) but to be quite honest I'm not sure where to go from there. I may ask more questions later if I need more detail on a particular aspect. So my questions are these; What major expenses may I be forgetting or overlooking in the planning process? What advice do you have for first-time landlords? What are some tips or red flags on choosing builders, contractors and inspectors? What advice do you have for choosing a location? What is some advice on saving money on property? What are some ways I could save money on initial investment? What things should I not cheap out on for initial investment? What financial qualifications are needed for such an big loan? How long should I wait before hiring people to run the business for me? #architecture #real-estate #real-estate-investing #apartments #apartment #landlord #property-insurance #property-management #career-details

Does anybody have any tips or advice for phone interviews with investment firms?

I'm a college student majoring in English/Economics, and I have a phone interview with an REIT/Asset Management firm. I was wondering if anybody had any advice for how business/finance interviews are usually conducted. How much of a technical background should I be expected to have, and besides the usual "fit" questions, are there any additional questions I should know how to answer? #business #finance #consulting #investment-banking #real-estate-investing #real-estate-financing

Are there any similarities between real estate investing and stock market investing?

I want to learn both, so I was wondering if there are any similarities that overlap so that I don't have to learn two completely different investment types. #finance #financial-services #investment-management #real-estate #real-estate-investing
