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 -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!
