Immigrant seeking advice on breaking into IB in Canada post an MBA at a Canadian MBA program
This is my first post on WSO. I am an Associate with 4.5 years of experience at aM&A shop in Sydney, Australia. Deals i've successfully worked on/closed are sales of private Managed IT Services/Enterprise SaaS to larger trade players or PEs, with EVs ranging from A$5m to A$25m.I did my undergrad (BBA - Finance) in Australia, however due to the change in I dont see myself having a future in the country. I am in the process of applying to MBA programs in Canada, first one up is Ivey, and I was hoping you could provide me with some advice on:
How someone with my background in the industry would be able to break into IB post an MBA?
Whether the Ivey MBA (given its located in London and not Toronto, and it's structure doesnt allow time for an internship) is the right program to get onto Bay Street?
Appreciate your advice in advance!
