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... 10 months 1 week
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 2 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... 1 year 8 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. His parents asked me to help out (as I work in Finance) and see what the best way for breaking into Commodity Trading would be. Now, I know that some... 2 years 2 months

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 5 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 5 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 5 months

MSc. at Cass or LSE?[quote=Garfield123]Thank you all for your input, just out of curiosity; all people who have been advising me to go to LSE, are you from from US? Because I realise that LSE has a much higher reputation there but I have no intentions of moving there permanently. I live in London and will be looking... 1 week 6 days
Official MSF RankingsHasn't Georgetown just started a Masters in Finance? Is there a reason why they haven't ranked? 1 week 6 days
Offer: LSE MSc Accounting and Finance VS Imperial...LSE, hands down. I know a few people who did the course and have since played really well (a few elite Asset Managers and Investment Banks). 1 week 6 days
Masters in Supply Chain ManagementIt's a shame that MIT is out of reach. Great school and program. In Europe, I would recommend Bath (don't think they do an MSc in Supply Chain Management, but their B-School is in the Top 5 in the UK. I'd also look at Rotterdam and Stockholm. Getting a continental MSc might serve your experience... 4 months 1 week
Is B school worth it if you're already a...You're assuming that B-School is only for those who want to 'break-in', rather than a long-term investment. It's true that Business School will help you in the short-term a great deal (e.g. career change) but will also help for promotions later on. 5 months 2 weeks
