Which internship for MBB?

Anonymous A

Hey guys,

I'm wondering which internship would complete my resume in an adequate way for MBB entry after my master.

I already worked in BIG 4 consulting, Public Sector and Trading in a Bank.
Now I'm struggeling between these options: Bus.Dev. in a start-up, Controlling in a DAX30 company or IB in a small boutique.

What do you think would be the smartest career move?

I'm thankful for any comment!

Hi,

First of all, why don't you want to apply to MBB now? Why do you need these extra steps?

Then options:

  1. Startup - I don't think it's a good option, unless its a big tech. You'll not get a brand. Moreover, Bus dev function in a small startup is the least useful. The only great scenario is a Saas startup where you start as bizdev and build the sales function from a scratch, becoming VP of sales. But I doubt that you can do it with no prior experience
  2. Controlling - better, but quite boring. Consultants don't like auditors:)
  3. IB - here it is. It will give you similar skills as consulting. Go for it
