Which group, sponsor finance or subscription finance, have a better chance in moving to Investment banking roles later on. Those groups are in corporate banking sector at my bank, but I know those two groups are housed under many investment banks as well.

Sponsor finance will be better since it's akin to lev fin, which is similar to m&a. Good buy side exit ops from there

I don’t have much experience in this. You should probably put most of this in the investment banking bowl too!

If you want to stay in PE, either, but I'd lean towards subscription fin. For IB, sponsor fin.

I notice that when women and people of color raise issues… basically saying they are experiencing bias, microgressions, and straight up racism at work, they always have to say that they “know” it’s “not intentional” or “unintentional”. It’s almost like they can’t initiate the discussion without adding that caveat so that they’re not attacked… It seems like it’s really important to protect the feelings of the perpetrators.

Current MBA student struggling with choosing between internship offers - both are very similar in size but is one focused more in the tech space (slightly stronger rep and I like the team a little better) and the other more industrial / non-tech services (I will likely want to end up at a fund that focuses in this space after MBA). I would like to end up in a different geography than where these firms are after MBA so which is better for FT recruiting - stronger name or more relevant industry?
