AIG or ZS Assocites ? Career advice needed. [#permalink] New post 30 May 2013, 06:06
Hi

It would be really helpful if someone from similar background or knowledge can help me answer this question.

I am graduating this June 2013 as a Mechanical Engineer and have job offers from AIG (American International Group) as a Catastrophe Risk Analyst and ZS Associates as Business Analytics Associate.
I plan to pursue Masters in finance-pre experience fall 2014. By the time of my application I will have some 12 months of experience.
Which job would be a better experience and justification in my application to pursue Masters in finance.

Best

The first one is far more finance related; the second one is more corporate strategy related. What do you want to do 10 years from now?
