I am a college senior at a non-target. This summer I interned at a BB in the corporate and investment banking division, and have a full-time return offer for next year. My ultimate goal is to end up in asset management/wealth management. I have the following two options:
- Accept the BB offer, work for 2-3 years, then head for a masters for a possible career switch to asset management/wealth management
- Reject the BB offer and head for a masters straight out of undergrad, and then try to break into AM/WM
While I did enjoy my summer stint, I can't imaging myself doing banking forever. What would you all suggest? Which option would make it easier to get into AM/WM? If I go with option 2, would I be a fool to turn down a BB offer especially coming from a non-target background? Anything else that you believe I should consider while weighing my options?
Please help, thanks.
