Some questions about IB and S&T
I've seen some posts comparing IB to S&T, and, but wanted some more specific questions answered.
is getting into a M7 b-school easier through IB than thru trading? Are your chances higher with IB? Or do you have the same chances if you were to do trading at a BB? Is this idea that working in IB (or even trading for that matter) increases your chances of getting into b-school even true? I need to clarify a lot of myths/potential misconceptions here.
are IB exit opps superior? Seems like with IB you can break into tech, vc, hedgefunds, etc. But with trading the only exit opps you have would be to hedgefunds due to how pigeonholed you are in terms of transferrable skills as a trader. is this true?
I read an article that MS raised their base for analysts in a bunch of divisions to a flat 110k before bonuses (IB and S&T included). Is this the case with most/all of the BBs? is comp between IB and trading around the same nowadays? Are IB bonuses perhaps bigger?
P.S. ignore the region. Should be US. Italy glitched itself onto there lol.
