May be nothing but I keep finding interesting connections with a lot of people in the world stage today.

Must be a really good school.

Eli Goldstein

Eli Goldstein is Co-Manager of The Radcliff Companies; a private investment holding company. Prior to founding The Radcliff Companies in 2016, Mr. Goldstein was Chief Investment Officer and Partner of E.L. Rothschild LLC since 2008, where he was responsible for the firm’s global direct investments. Mr. Goldstein led E.L. Rothschild focusing on deal structuring and execution as well as the ongoing management and operations of E.L. Rothschild’s businesses. His investments have spanned Luxury Goods, Media/Technology, Financial Services, Infrastructure and Real Estate, globally. Prior to E.L. Rothschild, Mr. Goldstein was an Investment Banker in the Global Industries Group at Bear, Stearns and Co.

And look at this...

Mr. Goldstein holds a Bachelor of Science degree in economics, magna cum laude, from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Does that remind you of anyone else?? Let's take a look.


He got his start when he turned a big profit on a Cincinnati apartment complex his father assigned him after his Wharton graduation in 1968.

Anyone else off the top of my head?

Turner CEO, John K Martin

Martin received an M.B.A. degree in finance and organizational behavior from the Columbia University Business School and a B.S. in economics from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.

Must be a great school.

Aside from it being an amazing school, it seems to me like there is a common theme here among what we keep seeing and hearing about in the media and the alumni of this school. Although they didn't attend together... I wonder... could anything else be going on at this school?

A club maybe??

Nothing to see here?

Why wouldn't you look to good business schools to find successful alumni?

Seems like common sense

There isn't a huge conspiracy. It is really just that business and education is some what insular in that once you get into the right network, you get more opportunities than the general public. This is why upper middle class and wealthy parents obsess about their children getting into the Ivy League and peer schools. Gaining admission to certain schools essentially guarantees an upper middle class life unless you are an idiot. The network and opportunity is what makes the schools so valuable.

The top 5 graduate business schools are Harvard, Stanford, Wharton (U of Penn), Kellogg (northwestern), and University of Chicago. These schools virtually guarantee employment at the most prestigious firms and corporate jobs. Graduates typically start out with incomes around $150k or more.

You see the same pattern with lawyers. Harvard, Yale, Stanford, University of Chicago, Columbia. There is a reason most of the Supreme Court justices are typically from one of those schools.

The same with employers. Many of these leaders tend to have the same employers on their resumes. McKinsey & Co, BCG, Bain, GE, Procter & Gamble, Deloitte, Goldman Sachs, etc. mainly because these firms do most of their recruiting at the above mentioned schools.
