What's the male/female ratio of people at your college recruiting for investment banking?
Curious to hear what the ratio is across schools. I'm the guy that posted a comment several months ago responding to a comment in which the person assumed the OP was a male (with no prior context to believe it was in fact a dude - ie responded "bro" to the comment). I said something along the lines of "what makes you assume OP is a male?" I ended up getting like 45 monkey shits thrown at me and only 2 silver bananas, so I had to make a new account since my credits were deep in the negatives lmao.
It kinda made me think, overwhelming majority of people recruiting for investment banking must still be male....despite the 60/40 M/F ratio you tend to see in most analyst classes these days. Fwiw I'm an MBA associate, went to an M7 and the M/F ratio recruiting for banking was like 70/30. Is the ratio a lot more skewed in your undergrad programs?
For every girl recruiting there's 5 guys
Gender representation is the silliest concept mankind has come up with
In my graduating class(2025), there's 4-5 kids recruiting for IB and they're all guys. There's a girl the year below however who seems dead on IB, so that's cool.
Big non-target over here haha.
Semi-target in non-US geography, out of 5 people I personally knew at my own uni targeting IB 2 were women. Based on observations at other unis within the same city I think probably 25-35% people focusing IB are female.
During on campus recruitment for BBs in my country of like 20-25 people are selected of which 2-3 are women usually.
Target - def atleast 70-30
Better odds cause if the 60-40 or 50-50
Honestly feels like 65-35 male-female at my target where 100-130 people are recruiting
