From Fortune 500 To IB
I’m in my late 20s, working for a fortune 500 as a BU Financial Controller. IB has been my dream since I was a kid but due to personal reasons and despite a 6 month internship after graduating from a FT top 15 MSc I had to go for FMCG to make sure my parents back home had a stable source of income (I entered the job market back in 2014 and to my knowledge there was a lot of downsizing going on in IB).
I am at the point where I would like to move back to IB possibly in Risk or Equity Research, I’m proficient in R and Python.
I’m looking into an MBA, likely Johnson 1Y or Tuck but being a newbie I wanted to hear from anyone who has successfully managed the transition or that has a more up to date idea about where US BB recruit.
