I'm going to start work as a business analyst working in Technology at a large Asset Management firm in London. I really like the exposure to new technologies (big data, cloud, AI) etc, however in the long term (5-10 years) I hope to move over to the front office (e.g. Investment - Equity).
The two main reasons being the client interactions and the better comp. I wanted to know how plausible this is/how often it happens? I would characterise myself as ambitious, confident, but not necessarily smarter than other analysts with my job. Would an MBA help in making this transition happen?
