Hello, just graduated from a local target school in Southeast Asia (not Singapore) and I'm currently weighing job options. I intend to work for around a year before pursuing my masters degree. (ideally in London)
Current prospects are either Big 4 Transfer Pricing or a boutique IB that's relatively unknown. Although I am aware that big 4 isn't viewed too highly - particularly since my end goal is BB ER, I'm wondering if the name recognition of a Big 4 firm outweighs the lower salary (among other cons) once I start applying for B-school (LBS MFA, LSE MSc Finance) in two years.
Would love to hear the community's input and your thoughts on how competitive my profile would be.
Race: Southeast Asian
Uni: Local Target (SEA)
W/E: Two internships, one in risk management, one in ER
Target programs: LBS MFA, LSE MSc Fin (open to more suggestions)
End goal: BB ER in London
- elementary school tutor for less-privileged children
- facilitated financial literacy workshops in local public high schools
