Those who went for investment banking post mba - why? And what are exit opps looking like as an IB associate?

Lol expecting people who’re really in IB to have the time to respond to this is the optimism we need in our lives

Probably won’t be many replies - all associates are swamped 😂

But I worked in IB as an analyst and can say post MBA associate exit opps always seemed to be worse than analyst to associate exit opps. (Which makes sense)

Would those with CPA/accounting backgrounds still have pretty well exits after IB? I know I don’t model and forecast on day to day but most fundamental finance principles were taught in undergrad and hit on CPA exam. Jw what your experience was with associates coming in that came from big 4 accounting unless there were none lol.

Unless you have a prior background in finance, your exit oops are very limited

People go to IB for the pre$$$tige

Maybe a better question is to ask the IB analysts that left and went back to MBA
1. What did you do post mba
2. Why?

As a part-time MBA student, I am also considering between MBB and IB roles. Why do you think PE didn't hire Post-MBA associates? Isn't IB background >> MBB when it comes to PE recruiting?

Things that come to my mind are government-related, military, some fintech. Sciences have great need of computing, and can have big impact, but income is less clear.

I know going to MBB they have pretty specific comp coming out for M7 grads but outside of those three firms, what is the draw? Trying to justify spending 200k for a degree.
