Fortune 50 Tech Company FDLP vs. Corporate Banking

Pay is similar with banking being a little bit more.
Not really sure what location I would get as I just went to a superday somewhere in CA or TX ( I don't want to live on the East Coast)

If I wanted to end up in corporate finance after attending a top MBA (Yale, Booth, Wharton, Tuck, etc.) Which is the best route?

Best way to end up in corporate finance.............. the corporate finance Leadership Program.

To add onto ABD, here are reasons to go to the FLDP:

1) If you like the FLDP and like the company, you've got your career figured out.

2) If you want to stay with the company post-MBA and it's near a good school, you can go part-time and get a substantial amount of it paid for without sacrificing work experience.

3) It'll probably take you around the same amount of time to get into a top MBA from CorpBanking as CorpFin (~4 years).

4) If you want to end up in CorpFin, why not jump in? A corpbanking experience doesn't add nearly the value to a resume as IBD.

I know there's a corporate banker somewhere around on WSO, maybe he'll know wassup (and/or @"happypantsmcgee" might be able to weigh in a bit).

Would there be any benefit to do corp banking right out of undergrad? Besides the obvious it probably being more interested/intellectually challenging work in the beginning stages.
