job switching guidance [#permalink] New post 30 May 2014, 00:36
I am looking forward to do my second MBA from one of the top schools in US. I had done my post graduate diploma in industrial management (MBA equivalent) from the top 10 colleges (NITIE ).My study focus was Supply chain operations and finance. But I got interested in finance and went on to join as a Private banker (as that was the only tile available to me in the bad financial times). Later when markets opened I moved to Investment banking and currently working in an offshore team from India supporting Europe at Nomura. I wanted to know whether I should continue here for another year (will have 3 years work ex then) and apply to schools or should I look to move to a better place and spend a year before applying.
I have two options: 1. Join another offshore investment banking team in a bigger bank likes of JPM, GS, DB (top 3) - this shall be a bigger brand but the learning may not be very much 2. Join Indian boutique in the front end with client facing role- the work would be good but the company may not be well known.

Hi Amit,

Spending time at a “brand” company just to get the brand, but where you’re not sure you can really stand out in that short time won’t be all that helpful. Schools do want some students from name-brand firms, but they also want students from other types of firms, to have the full array of businesses represented. And, for that matter, Nomura is hardly an unknown element! It will be well known to the adcoms.

I suggest selecting the option that – most important – you really want to pursue for your career interest and growth. And, the other key thing, is which option will give you the greatest opportunity for growth, leadership, and impact. Hopefully these two align.
