Hi all,

I’m currently a risk consultant (~6 months) within financial services at
PwC and very interested in IB for its work around strategy and finance. I was wondering if anyone can offer any insight on whether I should try and switch now while I’m early in my career (graduated in 2020) or should I aim to get into IB after MBA in 4-5 years? Thanks!
