Career changer - MBAHi guys, I'll be looking to go to B-School next fall and I'm a career changer (F500) looking to get into IBD (Boutiques, mostly). I live and work in Europe and I'd like to stay here after I get my MBA. I've heard great things about INSEAD's program but it's placement in Finance seems pretty... 5 months 3 days
St. Gallen MBAHi guys, Currently looking into MBAs and still deciding on whether it's a move I'd like to make. I'd like to continue working in a German-speaking country and from what I've seen St. Gallen seems to be the best option for that. However, I was unable to find much information on the MBA at HSG and... 1 year 4 months
Careers in TrustNot 100% sure which forum this goes under but I couldn't find much information on the forums about careers in Trust. It seems like a pretty good lifestyle in terms of hours and the type of work you do (working with family businesses) and helping manage family trusts. But anyone have any concrete... 1 year 9 months
IMDHi guys, So there's been a lot of talk about other European schools but very little on IMD. It was ranked 19th this year by the FT and seems to have a solid reputation within Europe. I'd be interested to know what you all think about this School. From what I've seen, it has a low presence in... 2 years 2 months
Alternative routes for Commodity TradingHey guys, So I'm trying to do research for a family member of mine who's in College at the moment and quite interested in Commodity Trading.

B-School and age.Hey guys, So, I'm from Europe and looking to go into a top MBA programme (either US or Europe, but ideally the latter). My background is in family business and PB but currently looking at opportunities in Consulting as I want to keep my options open. I know that age isn't much of an issue... 2 years 11 months
Atos Origin / Cap GeminiHi guys, Wanted a quick take on these two. Good exit opps down the line? I know Cap Gemini is a solid player, but Atos Origin only recently made it 'big' after the Olympics and their handling of its tech delivery. 2 years 11 months
IBD Associates from non-banking backgrounds.So, I've been reading a few articles about how to break in to IBD as an Associate from non-Banking backgrounds. How common is this and what backgrounds do people traditionally come from? I would assume that Accounting / Audit would be one's best bet? 2 years 11 months

Invest in real estate (Eastern Europe looks promising), some low-tax investments and for the love of God, vote for conservative parties.

From what I hear, finance is obviously not as lucrative as it used to be, and there is a chance that it will never be. That does not mean that finance does not still offer excellent... 1 month 3 weeks
