Hi, I am 30, and doing alright in my job in CPG marketing, but I would now like to move into investment banking (M&A, with a CPG focus if possible).
I am in Canada. What is the general ranking of bschools in Canada for people of my profile?
I know that Queens is ranked no.1 by BW, and it is a very good undergrad school in ca for sure, but some of my peers tell me that their MBA is not as highly acknowledged as Toronto or Ivey. Is this true?
Also, would it be possible for someone in my profile to move into an associate position at a bank if I learn all that is necessary from a basic corporate finance perspective? Or am I a few years too late, given that the usual IB hires are in their 20s? Could I buck this norm if I worked hard?
Just trying to get a realistic perspective. Thanks for any thoughts.
