I'm a senior in a top school in Asia graduating in 2016. I've grinded through school, networked like crazy and completed internships in consulting,. I offer in Asia (think Singapore/KL/HK) and a Equity Structuring offer in London.
I need to decide between the two by end of January, and would really appreciate any advice on the pros/cons of either. In the long haul, I would like to end up in PE/value investing - where there's a mix of operational understanding and finance. The positive for MBB is the operational experience, but most of MBB Asia's exits are industry roles, not PE/VC. Another con is that this may pigeon-hole me in Asia. The BB job comes with better pay and a fantastic location, but isn't really the kind of work that excites me, and not very relevant to my long term goals.
Moreover, I know that I'm in a strong position (as a fresh college grad with a strong CV and good offers) and wanted to see if you think that there is something else I should be gunning for - VC/PE//MBB outside Asia etc. If there is something you believe would be a significant step up from either offer, I would love to hear your thoughts on that.
P.S.: Please feel free to PM me for any help that I can offer - how to break into either role, working in Asia etc. Always happy to help.
Thanks a ton!
