Summer analyst roles for 1 year master students?
I was not really sure where to post this, but it seemed appropriate here.
I'm about to start an MSc in finance at a good european university, and am considering a career in IB (London, Paris etc.). I have no prior experience in IB, so I suppose my chances of getting a SA offer are much higher than a FT offer.
My issue is that my program is only 1 year long, and therefore I will only be able to do an internship during the summer (when I graduate). I heard that some banks are flexible and allow final year students to apply for SA positions. Has anyone experienced this situation?
I should also say that I'm not really focused on prestige, and would gladly work for a smaller boutique IB. Could smaller firms be more flexible on previous work experience and consider me for a FT position?
Looking forward to receiving any feedback!
