I am currently doing an off-cycle internship at a MM Investment Bank and I only have one semester left of my undergraduate studies. I have always wanted to do a top Master's program but if I receive a full-time offer from the bank I am currently at then it would be a tough decision. I know I can always do a Post-Experience Master's but I don't know. I'm 22 years old and will, after this spring, have a 6-month IB Internship Experience on my resume. I have always dreamed of working at a Bulge Bracket Bank and I am just curious to see if it's worth it to decline a potential full-time offer to pursue a top Master's in Finance and then apply for BB. Alternatively, work my way upwards and aim at applying for a Full-Time position at a BB after a year or two of experience at my current bank?
I have a Bachelor of Science in Business and Econ from a good university, GPA 4.0/5.0 and international exchange program at Uni St. Gallen. 6 months of IB/M&A experience. Should I potentially decline an offer to pursue a masters and apply for BB internships with the strong brand of a top masters?
