UBS IB (M&A/TMT) vs. Monitor Group

hey guys,

was wondering which ft offer would be better for b-school and which is more prestigious/generally more impressive on a resume. i'm familiar with the differences between IB and consulting, it's really just those 2 points i'd like input on if possible.

thanks!

 

If you're willing to put up with the life style for a couple years go for the UBS IB.....not the best out there but assuming they've cleaned up their act by the time you have applied to MBA that will be more impressive on your resume.

Now if you plan on staying at one of these companies and not going to B-School.....I dono if I'd push anybody towards UBS IB. But if you're certain about B-School UBS is the best choice for Resume/networking puposes.

Thoughts?

I think M&A/TMT at any firm (even UBS) is hard to beat. I may be wrong, but I don't think Bschools really look at rankings of BB for applicants. I mean they clearly look at GS,MS. But it is more like GS,MS and then everyone else. When they look at your application there going to see a guy who did M&A/TMT work and they will be very impressed. Congrats.

i think it's an odd comparison. they're not in the same industry. they'll both get you into b-school. differences are so marginal that the decision should absolutely come down to banking vs. consulting. i don't think H/W/S will care one way or the other; it's all about what you do and how you perform.

personally, i think monitor would be an environment that gives you a better chance to do well. but that's just my opinion.
