Hey everyone, wanted others' thoughts on my situation.
So basically, I did a biochemistry degree at a non-target in Canada, and just managed to land a FT investment banking analyst position at a big 4 Canadian bank (Toronto)
Given my circumstance (no business degree, non-target), this was more than I could have hoped for; a lot of business students in Canada go to school for these very positions.
However, as great of an opportunity it is, I am a bit hesitant. My plan was to rack up a few relevant finance/asset management/ibank internships in my gap year (I currently have 2), and go back to a top Masters programme in USA/London or the Richard Ivey HBA program in Canada. My line of thinking was that these schools, with my 2-3 internships in asset management/ibanking, would give me a legitimate shot at one of the BBs in NYC/SF.
Would it be stupid of me to let go of this offer for the CHANCE of applying to BBs in the states?
