Would you take a full-time BB IBD job in a good industry group (Citi/CS/BAML, think Industrials/Energy) or a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford (Economics)? The BB IBD job is probably more relevant to PE/HF, but I feel that a rhodes scholarship could open doors as well
Would the answer change if it were top BB (GS/MS) or elite boutique (Moelis/Lazard/Greenhill) IBD? More justifiable to take that over rhodes? Obviously if its BX restructuring or PE or GS TMT etc. or something ridiculous that's preferable to any scholarship, but otherwise would a rhodes be a smart move over a regular IBD job?
