Hi Gentlemen, I graduated from college in 2009 from a relatively well known university, but not necessarily a "target school" for recruiting for Investment Banking. That being said, I really have a strong desire to break into Investment Banking to gain some solid experience to work in a mid size private equity firm. I am currently working as an Operations Analyst in the Fixed Income Group of a prominent Investment Management firm. I am highly considering returning to Graduate School to puruse my Masters of Science (MSF) degree to make myself a little more competitive. I have a few questions regarding the degree: 1) For those that have an MSF, is it typical to have an internship upon completion or during the degree? Given that it is only 10 classes, I am guessing people usually just secure a full time position immeadiately after. 2) For those in the Banking industry, does the MSF add any value to a person's candidacy? Better yet, my real question is that do I have a better chance of securing interviews when I am back in school or working as a Operations Analyst? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
