Hello everyone, I'm currently enrolled in a French university as an undergraduate and I'm graduating in 2023.
I'm considering applying for a PhD in Economics after my bachelor.
I would like to know if a IB/PE internship would be a plus on my cv. Indeed, I'm able to applying for 2 Off-cycle, in 2022 and 2023 (I'm doing internship this year between May and August in a young company, non finance related).
The fact that I'm from a French University is against me, especially because I don't have a lot of alumni in the industry. Should I network now for 2022? Does the fact that I'll attend a PhD could be a problem (I mean the banks mostly want future employees as interns).
Thank you for your time and your attention, and all the best.
(Ps:does the Cambridge advanced diploma in economics have some value, I'm considering applying to this and attending the MphEconReseach, then the PhD in economics here)
