I am currently a non-MBA Masters student in France and I received offers to work in a specialist investing role with a large European fund (think the likes of Ardian/Morgan Stanley) as well as a specialist Tier-2 consulting firm in London.
I'd like to apply as an experienced hire to one of the MBB offices in the Middle East or Singapore in the future. I'd love some advice on the following:
1. How many years of experience is required to be considered as an experienced hire?
2. Which of the two offers are better suited for an experienced hire switch?
3. My long term goals are entrepreneurship or a VC role (can't decide between the two as of yet, or the sequence, I am also open to an MBA later in my career). Does consulting fit in the scheme of things, assuming that I want to start my company/VC career in the Middle East/Singapore or go to an M7 MBA?
