The Finance/Corporate life. Please respond!!?
I am currently a high school senior, and I will be, hopefully, accepted into UMich, Emory, and NYU. I'm pretty confident that I will be. My majors will be French and Finance. I love the idea of working in IB, PE, HFs, or corporate finance; however, everyone tells me that the lifestyle is fast pasted and that I won't have time for anything but work. My ideal job is to travel a lot and represent companies, so I guess you could say Int'l IB or PE. Could someone give me some insight on how the lifestyle really is, or what jobs are more international business based, and what is my best option as far as schooling. I have also been accepted to University of South Carolina, which has the #1 int'l business program in the states.
P.S. I think I am in love with the thought of making all the money, and having the prestige, of IB and PE. But, I love to travel, and speak different languages.
