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, thenInvestment 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., , , and at their career fair but 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!
