I'm in an interesting predicament. I am currently deciding between a couple offers and am from a target school (H/Y/P/W/S) as a senior:
- Football Operations for an NFL Team (basically running analytics for player performance and help make drafting decisions, sports science analytics)
- Bulge Bracket IB (tier 2)
- Consulting (tier 2)
I keep thinking about optionality - obviously consulting and"safe routes", but I guess working in football has been my dream since I was a kid. Like, the opportunity is something I've always dreamt about and have worked towards. How would you guys consider the three of these opportunities if you had a choice? I'd also like the option of going to M7 B-School down the road, so while I'm leaning towards football right now, I'll have a hard decision to make if working in football operations is frowned down upon by adcomms.
Any perspective would be great, thanks!
