I've got graduate offers from McK, Bain and Goldman Sachs, IB div. Which is the best in your views? Thanks.

anon to mike (#1)

They're all quite different businesses. This being a consulting forum, you'll probably get more advice in favour of the two consulting firms than you would on the ibtalk.com forum.

What do you value most? Money, power, prestige, respect of your coworkers, respect of your friends and family, short-term feedback/responsive environment, long-term recognition, etc.?

a certain prisoner in Monty Python's Lifve of Brian.... "you lucky, lucky b@st@rd" Congratulations. Whichever one you take go for it 100% for a few years. You will be set up for life in terms of the respect you will earn for making it with any of those companies.

mike to kim (#4)

Thanks everyone for the replies. My plan is to join a consulting firm for 3 years before an MBA at a top school, for Phase 1. At present, my preference is Bain over McK.

As for Phase 2, I intend to work in the M&A division on an IB post MBA for 4 years. Thereafter, a career in private equity - target firm: Blackstone.

My third phase is to set up my own venture capital/seed firm specialising in reconstruction and rebuilding fund in emerging economies.

To Kim,

I studied applied mathematics at MIT and development economics (a one year MSc) at Oxford.

Hi Choices, Unrelated question but - how did you go from doing a masters in development to deciding on such a clearly defined path through capitalism? The choice between money and 'making a difference' is a particularly tough one for high achievers I think.

I do not think that question is a tough one to answer, especially for high achievers. You can structure a combination of both. I noted that the initial message poster plans to set up a reconstruction and a rebuilding fund for emerging economies. Is that not a brilliant combination of both?
