FLDP at Nestle and General Mills Career Path HELP!!!

I just got a offer from both Nestle and General Mills for their finance program. Can someone tell me about the career path coming from these programs? And, if my end goal is to do in-house corporate development or IB. Is that possible assuming I get into a top 20 MBA program??? How do B-school look at people from these finance program?

why?

Nestles promotion cycles are very slow and the rotations are very mixed. GM provides fast track to leadership and is much more organized in its finance depts.

Either one of those companies --> Top 20 MBA --> Consumer/Retail IB --> Consumer/Retail corp dev. Seems logical to me.

Don't know anything about either of those programs, however. You need to make a call based on where you want to live, which company you thinks gives you the best opportunity to move up and get different experiences prior to your MBA, who you got along with the best, which company offers better rotations (e.g. is there a strategy or corp dev rotation?), etc. From an MBA admissions perspective, the brand name looks equal on paper.

No Strategy or Corp Dev Rotation in either. I live in New York, but General Mills offer is in Minneapolis and Nestle is in Arlington, Virginia. It's for a summer internship with the possibility of getting a return offer for a 2-3 year rotation in the end. Both program pay fairly the same and it's both more cost analysis and supply chain finance. I came from a shitty school in New York, Pace University, however I'm definitely top of the class. Still interviewing with other companies at the moment, not rushing me to accept offer yet. Have a pretty good shot in landing a MS prime brokerage client coverage offer as well, but I don't see myself going the S&T path. I was also considering doing prime brokerage to equity research then MBA and IB. I don't give a shit about social life or work life balance, I just work like a machine for 2-3 years and figure life out from there. Any advice?

Corp Finance or S&T? If my goal is going for MBA and I don't give a crap of what I do prior as long it increase my chance of getting a good MBA program.

Then I believe the FLDP will give you the best shot at a top MBA. MBA adcoms views fldps very favorably as they are considered high quality and unique from your standard IB/Consulting applicants. At my firm we had people go to Harvard and Wharton last year,
