Boutique private wealth management/operations or Summer Business Program?
I am a recent college grad, and am trying to get into Wall Street. You can see my situation from previous posts: I went to a non-target private school, tho I did well, have a ton of extracurrics, I majored in poli sci, minored in economics and Spanish. I've been applying to places left and right. I did get an interview, and even made it to a second round for retail wealth management. I didn't get an offer.
I hear wealth management and operations are the easier parts of WS to get into. However, I would love to do something better than sales or bitch work. If I were to get into say, NYU's or UChicago's or Dartmouth's business summer or winter programs, would it be a better investment than taking ops/WM at a boutique because I could learn all the finance/valuation jazz and have a better shot at, PE, VC, ?
