Which internship should I take to help me land a consulting internship next time?

I unfortunately wasn't able to secure a consulting internship for summer 2022 and most places are done recruiting. I want to try again for summer 2023 and will be practicing case interviews until then. In the meantime, here are the internships I did get:

  1. DCM internship at mid-tier commercial bank

  2. Agile governance/project management internship at widely recognized fintech firm

The DCM internship pays a lot more and is located in Boston, which is really enticing however I feel like the project management internship is a lot more relevant and would help me land a consulting internship for the summer after. Thoughts and advice on what I should do?
