Hello everybody, the time has come to make a key decision so i kindly ask your advice. What would you do in my position?
Desired career path: first choice is Management Consulting, then Asset Management and then Investment Banking.
Location: Eventually i want to settle in Switzerland, but it doesn t have to be right after graduation. So i am considering working in London for 4/5 years and then transitioning to Switzerland (maybe post Mba? who knows). I do not speak fluent german at the moment but i am learning. Brexit has me concerned to say the least.
List of schools i have applied.
Imperial (Msc in finance) : Most likely a rejection.
LBS (MiM) : Some hope
Cass (Msc in finance) : Accepted
SSE (Msc in finance and Master in accounting, valuation & financial management) : A maybe for MSF and most likely for the other program.
RSM (Msc in finance and investments) : Almost certain to be accepted
Edinburgh (Msc in finance) : no clue how they pick candidates.
In case I get admitted in either Imperial or LBS i will accept in a heartbeat but let s rule them out and evaluate the rest of my choices.
Cass seems to have good presence in IB in London but not so great for MC. Kpmg,Deloitte,Capgemini,Accenture and Pwc will be at their career fair but not BCG which is my target.
SSE has a very impressive list of corporate partners, the only drawback i see it s the duration of the program.
RSM seems a bit risky, i do not know if my german skills will be adequate to apply for jobs in the Netherlands that require Dutch and i have no clue how many positions are offered for English speakers. However, i could extend my studies by an extra semester at St. Gallen and use that time to network there and eventually land a job.
Edinburgh is a target for BCG according to their website but other than that don t really know much about the school.
Thank you in advance for any input!
