Dear all

In advance, please let me apologise for such controversial title.

I am north Asian w/ 3y consulting, and 1y finance experience. I was offered a seat for INSEAD, and still wondering should I accept or not.

Above all, though my targeted post MBA industry is investment banking or private equity, which usually require substantial amount of pre-MBA finance experience, I do not possess enough experience in finance field so staying another year in finance and pursuing MBA may position me better on finance job market.

Also, I perceive that regarding “community” building, or “comradeship”, 2 year program outperform one year program. (I have heard from some of INSEAD alumni that it was not so easy to build such friendship due to short length and hustle and bustle)

You may say “apply another year then!”
But as a candidate from over represented pool (north Asian male, consulting/finance) and being over 30 years old, it would be highly risky to decline current offer and get another offer from INSEAD-equivalent school.

Want to ask if someone has been in similar situation, currently working in finance (m&a or PE), or has general comments on myself.

FYI, graduated from top-tier b-school, GMAT 720, speaks 3 fluent languages + 2 conversational, consulting & M&A advisory, post-MBA: investment banking or PE


Thanks

I can't speak about any specifics with INSEAD - but I can speak to PE hiring a little. It is becoming more common for PE firms to target individuals with consulting experience... especially if it is from MBB. A close friend of mine just landed a top PE gig with MBB experience (granted, it is pre-MBA). Also, this is from a US perspective.

If you are not interested in consulting than Insead should not be your choice. Insead is a consulting school.
For IB in Europe you go to a LBS, HEC
In North America besides H/S/W, you go to a Booth, Stern, Ross, Columbia, etc
