I graduated one year ago from a top 2 undergrad business program (3.7 GPA), now working as a business analyst (non-finance) for a .
I am interested in investing and AM, but don't know if i want to work the hours of IB to get there, for fear of burning out.
1. Bite the bullet and do two years of IB to have more options.
2. Study for the CFA L1 & concurrently try to get a job in Equity Research, then apply for AM.
3. Stay at current FI, try to move internally.
Thank you all
