my name is Riccardo, I am 21 years old and am currently in my third year of undergraduate program at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy. I recently did the GMAT and scored 750 with a 6.0 AWA. I am studying Finance, and my chief objective is to find a job in the Equities Trading Area of a big investment bank such as Goldman, Merril Lynch, etc.
My problem is the following: i have the chance to continue studying, doing a Master of Science in Finance here at Bocconi for the next 2 years, or start looking for a job and then try to enter in a good MBA program (i thought Harvard or Stanford) after 2 or 3 years work experience in a prestigious bank. The point is: will an MBA be useful FOR THE CAREER I WANT TO PURSUE??
I am a bit confused if the MBA only builds up for future business leaders or if it could be useful also for me who wants to become a trader or investment manager.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks a lot
