Student from China trade off Chinese prospects with you

Hi folks,
I'm a junior three (next semester will be my penultimate year in undergrads) from one of Chinese top universities in Beijing.
I've been watching WSO for a long time and some of the posts are really conducive and insightful to me. What haunts me now is that I still have couples of puzzles to tackle but I'm afraid I can't just simply get the advice, hereby I propose we can trade off prospects relevant to financial markets or employment market as I've read piles of Chinese financial news and magazines, in addition I'm trading in A-share with my own account. I'll list my questions below and all the response will be highly appreciated!
1) I used to long for a MSF in the States as many of peers, however I've realized I'd probably fail to obtain a fancy offer since for one thing my major is to some extent irrelevant to finance industry, besides I'm not with a high GPA. Now I'm considering to put the propensity in European market-university of st gallen, Erasmus university Rotterdam, Frankfurt school of finance and management etc. But the issue comes up: Can theses universities fuel me in applying top IB? I'm not saying guarantee cuz I do understand school will be a plus but not a guarantee, I just want to figure out whether school mentioned above can provide me with potent alumni resources. Btw I've taken a GMAT with 720, 5.5/6.
2) I'm not a stereo-type Chinese student. I've been bold enough to make appointment with some big names when they visit my school. Most of my peers take what I've done as ridiculous, but I'm pretty sure I'm phasing forward in the right direction. The second trade I wanna make is I'm looking forward to help to improve my resume, really hope to talk with experienced people here!
I hate to talk way much but obviously it's somehow obnoxious now. Anyway I'll be grateful to all your kind advice, and I'll try my best to answer your questions on Chinese employment market, education, social issues, etc. Thank you!
Cheers,
H

Epic mis-use of a thesaurus is epic.

The HBS guys have MAD SWAGGER. They frequently wear their class jackets to boston bars, strutting and acting like they own the joint. They just ooze success, confidence, swagger, basically attributes of alpha males.

You will fall into that stereotyped category if you don't improve your English.

Not trying to be harsh but I am currently doing internship at BJ as well. But the good thing is you are cool enough to step out of the comfort zone to network etc. Jia You !

Thanks man. I like your mindset. Saw plenty of my chinese friends have difficult communication while networking due to awkward expressions and some of them are truly brilliant. So...it's just a shame.

Keep working hard and I am sure good things will happen :)

Hi may I ask you a question? I'm always trying to sound native but whenever I ask for advice from good friends in the States, they'll encourage me with "ur Eng. is great, u're amazing" etc. It's so nice of them but I'm really looking forward to suggestion on improving Eng. level.
So, could you please spare couples of mins, if convenient, to hit me with some hints? Thank you so much!

I think it's necessary for me to clarify here. Maybe its me who made everyone discuss about your English?
Was just trying to say a point that language is very important, and being native in English as much as possible is good for you to stand out in UK/US.

But, your english is VERY GOOD and yes, you shouldn't have any problem to talk to any girl in the club lol.
I do think, however, it is not perfect, like 99.999%. I would say try to get the master degree in UK/US. The English-speaking environment will help you a lot.

Right now le us just go back to the discussion about op's original topic: Chinese market

Hint you with some hints... I'm confused... that sounds slightly sexual. In what area, specifically, would you like me to hit?

It'd be helpful if you could elaborate on what specific skills will be applied in IB? Since I'm not specializing in finance or relevant business subject, I'd like to learn some specific skills such as M & A and fundamental accounting. Also will it be a plus for me to take a CFA and CPA? Thank you!
