Hi guys. I am about to complete my undergrad in a BCOMM program in a lower tier university in Canada (University of Windsor). My goal is to break into investment banking...but the people I've talked to all said I'd be swimming against the tide coming from my school.

My question is: Where can I do a Master in Finance/Accounting, IN EUROPE, that will increase my chances of working at a top IB and eventually getting into PE?

I am asking about Europe because I'd like experience overseas.

Thank you in advance for your advice.

You don't want to work in Canada?

Can you get into LSE or Ox/bridge? Those seem to be the schools that get the most attention on the other side of the pond. If not, you may be able to try french/german schools then look for regional offices or network from a non-target masters program into the london offices if you only speak english.

I know you said you wanted overseas experience, but if your goal is to get into investment banking, an American university is the best way for you to have a shot in investment banking.

Which American universities do you recommenced for a Masters program that doesn't require much work experience? My only relevant experience is as an 8-month internship in the finance department of Chrysler.

Thanks
