Best Course of Action to Break into Investment Banking: Non-Target to Credit Analysis to Top Tier MF?
Hey all. I am currently a first year credit analyst working at a BB. I went to a huge state school and graduated top of my class. I've been trying to break into Investment Banking for about three years now.
In an effort to rebrand, I have decided to pursue a Masters in Finance. So far, I have been accepted into a handful of programs, including Oxford's Masters in Financial Economics. I am still waiting to hear back from MIT's Masters in Finance.
I would really like to work in M&A at a Boutique Investment Bank and would prefer to be in Los Angeles, CA.
I feel as if I'm all over the place. My question is this: What compromise, if any, should I make in regard to my current collection of goals? Is it feasible to move from Oxford to LA and still make a respectable career in banking? I'm flexible on my plans, I just need some guidance.
Thanks in advance.
