Whats the WODS for finance in India - specificallyin India, if I want to spend a year or two there but come back to NY for my long term finance career. Firms now seem to be hiring more in Europe and Asia compared to US, but what is deal flow going to be like in India in the near term, how is the ability to lateral at different locations within specifically?
I know how different it is- lifestyle changes, etc. but I just want to spend some time there because I'm interested in starting a (non-finance related) business on the side.
Also GS office there is very generalist because deal flow is not as heavy as US, that is the way finance in India differs from US finance just as HK finance is quite specific to the few things HK companies need - would being jack of all trades master of none be a good or bad thing? It seems like you would get much more responsibility (a plus), and still good modeling experience.
So would it be possible to just lateral because of the experience/brand names/recommendations from senior bankers, or will I have to do bschool first to "rebrand" myself and get some US internship experience?
