Corporate Strategy Intern -> FT IBD?
I read a lot of threads about people wanting to move from IB to corp strat, however, my situation is somewhat the opposite.
I am a rising senior interning in corp strat at a F500, wanting to break into IBD FT. Is corp strat considered to be "competitive" experience when recruiting for IBD? Unfortunately, corp dev (internal M&A) is a separate department at my company so my experience is much more related to consulting than banking.
A bit of background on myself, if it matters:
- attending a top target school
- Ok grades (3.5 to 3.7GPA)
Any insight would be great! Thanks, guys.
