MBB in Europe - London vs Nordic Offices competitiveness?

 
#1 MBB in Europe - London vs Nordic Offices competitiveness?
24/02/2016 20:37

Orkid

Hi,

I'm currently an MBA student at a top 2 MBA program in Europe and am targeting MBB full-time. I have already secured a BB IBD Summer Associate role in London to give it a try, but most likely won't accept the full-time offer if given to me.

My questions are the following:

- I was initially planning to apply to the London MBB offices, but I presume it will be very competitive given the lack of a language barrier so I'd be competing at #2 top MBA in Europe plus some of the M7s?

As such, because I am a Swedish national and fluent in the language, would it be wise for me to rather apply to Stockholm instead of London given that my main goal is to break into MBB?

- For those who may know the language requirements for European offices, can I apply to Denmark with Swedish? I have seen them mention Scandinavian language as requirement, so Swedish should be ok?

Thanks for your help!

Not really sure. I'd expect the standards to be higher in London

Tony Restell (Top-Consultant.com) to Orkid (#1)

One thought I'd throw in is that it's common to allow staff to relocate between offices once you've worked in an MBB for a year or two. So if you can afford to play the long game, there's an argument for applying wherever you're likely to have the greatest chance of success and then relocate later on once you're established in the business. Note that you should expect offices to keep combined records of who's applied and been rejected from their offices, so if you blow your chances with one office you'll probably not have a shot at joining that company (in any office) for 18-24 months.

Hope that helps and good luck with your decision.

Tony
