I am 2.5 years out of undergrad and have been working in a Strat Planning capacity at a growing Regional Bank. In my current role I provide strategy/ special projects analysis and implementation support for the commercial banking group head (and direct reports).
Due to a shakeup in executive managment I have an opportunity to switch roles to become an analyst with a very successful Project Finance group within the organization.
I am planning to use Bschool to switch careers and pursue IB (eventually PE). Should i stay in my current strat planning role or switch to get credit/deal experience?
Which would make me a better Bschool applicant? Assuming i get into a top 15 school, would either experience be attractive to an IB?
