MBA Associate: Which Industry Groups to Target?Subscribe
Many of us first year MBA students are starting to ramp up recruiting. Part of that process involves narrowing down a list of groups to target during the networking period before interviews. To avoid the discussion on Coverage vs M&A (for which there are already a number of helpful threads), please assume that the student has already decided to pursue industry coverage groups (incl. Sponsors).
For those that have been in our shoes: Which group did you choose and why?
For anyone working in IB coverage group: Which industries do you think are most interesting to cover/analyze?
I am aware that this can be very bank dependent (for example does coverage do M&A in house, how strong is deal flow, etc.). I'm mostly just hoping for some broad opinions on industries.
It can be difficult to find this information online, especially on a forum that is focused more on the analyst level and therefore prioritizes exit opps over long term banking careers.
