I would like to work in IB, M&A or hedge funds my biggest dream being to eventually manage a hedge fund. Europe has always been a place I want to discover so I was thinking of maybe working there, do you think studying there would give me a better chance of finding a job over there?

I travelled a lot for tennis tournaments since becoming a professional player was my goal but I recently realized that only a very small proportion of players make enough money to live so I decided to go play college tennis in the US.

Let me know what you think of my profile and on when I should start applying to schools!
Kind Regards
Laurent
