Would any of you guys choose F500 FLDP over Investment Banking if the goal wasn't to be a PE Principal/ HF Manager in the future?
I have to make this decision and I'd like to hear some opinions. I am planning going to a M7 MBA in the near future. Once I'm at a MBA program, I believe IB/MB/ER/F500 career paths are all open no matter the background of the applicant.
- Easy hours/better quality of life. Get to enjoy your early 20s, especially if you are located in a decent sized city.
-More interesting, and not as mind numbing as IBD.
-Better placement into B-School. (Please debate) Few of the admin consultants I talked to think that the FLDP is a better route to top MBA because the top programs are trying to downsize the number of finance people in the classes.
-No/very little possibility of PE/HF/VC after B-School.
-Exit opps into HF, PE.
-Give up early to mid 20s
-Tougher competition for B-School
-If you don't get into H/S/W (seems like decent population of IB+PE people don't) then almost no chance to continue in PE/HF.
