Finance Rotation in FinTech
A bit about me: I graduated from a "well-known" private univ, with grad with honors, summa cum GPA (studied fin and econ). I did a couple internships during undergrad (finance roles) and landed a full time at a fintech/analytics firm. The role I currently am in is client facing, i work with large asset mgmt institutions to implement the product and work with them on many different projects. I have been here for 1.75 years and am losing interest in this work.
My company is a fortune 100 company and they just opened a corp finance rotation program where I would work with FP&A, Corp Dev/M&A, etc for one year. This role is only open to people like me who have been in my role for 21 months. I landed an interview for this program. My question is .. is this a good career move? Should I be aiming for more senior roles? I've liked my time here, so far: good people, good corporate responsibility, free lunches. Comp is low though.
I interviewed for a couple EBs but the roles were less technical than expected (Financial Sponsor Groups ended up being more rel mgmt) so decided it wasn't great for personal dev
I am also studing for GMATs now so plan to apply this summer for top MBA programs in NY (hopefully).
I would love some insight into what you think of these rotation programs and if they only look good if you are a recent grad and if this is going to be perceived well when I apply for MBA programs
Thank you! Really appreciate any comments, I have no friends or family in finance so Im just feeling a bit lost :/
