I am currently faced with a tough decision.
I've always dreamt of a career in IB in London. But as you know, competition is quite fierce and I had little luck thusfar.
Since my UG degree is unrelated to finance, I applied for a MSc in Finance at LSE and RSM. Unfortunately LSE rejected me, but I did get an offer from RSM for this year's intake.
However, I have recently been offered a job in real estate valuation for Knight Frank in Romania.
Do you think that working in real estate would put me in a good position for a career in IB? Or should I pursue my MSc in Finance at RSM and try to secure a grad scheme for a big company afterwards?
Thank a lot guys.
