Hi, I've read a lot on this forum and seems to be very important to go to a target school in order to get into BB IBD. However, I found very little information about what it takes for someone from continantal Europe to get into BB IBD. Are the rules somewhat different? I'm a MSc Finance student in Belgium. My grades are good (I will graduate cum laude or magna cum laude) but I'm not in a target school. There are no target schools in Belgium. There are only four universities and my university is seen as the best, but not a target. The concept of target schools are new to me, as the universities in Belgium are all seen as good universities. Employers don't care where you got your degree from.
Can I get into BB IBD in London without going to expensive schools like LSE and HEC?
What are my options, and what are the different trajects Finance students from contental Europe have done to get into BB IBD?
