Omer received his BA from Yale University and an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

“I knew I didn’t want to go back to investment banking,” explains Imtiazuddin. “I grew up in Pakistan. I had always seen the poverty around me, and I think I always had a desire to make a difference in this world. I didn’t get that opportunity on Wall Street, given the hours and everything else. So having had that desire, I used Wharton as a sounding board to see if this was one of those things I really could make a career out of. I want my career to be something where I’d find great meaning beyond mere financial rewards" -- Omer Imtiazuddin (Wharton Alumni Magazine, fall 2008)
