Probably works well even for jobs in Singapore and HK. I think mit is alum of MS(Finance) from LBS.if you want to work in USA, it would be better to do Berkeley or Princeton or MIT or CMU.Thanks for your comment. Since Europe especially london is very shaky and US sorta has improved a lot so would you say US schools definitely offer better prospects for jobs and networking? I do not want to be investing in a programme which at the end of one year leaves me with no hard prospects even though its only one year. Would you say US AM funds would not even care for a European/Asian name on the CV?If you go through a top US program, you'll have a shot, but there is the visa nightmare to go through, some guys won't sponsor.If you have the right to work in the EU - LBS may be the way to go, otherwise unless you are thinking of Asia (and can get the right visa or have the right citizenship) for that.Unfortunately a lot of this depends on where you were born and are a citizen of.I have some experience in Singapore and London but don't have permanent visa for either so given the protective policies it all depends on how much weight your profile will have in interviews compared to the rest of the people who have no visa issues...but I have heard Asians graduating from LBS or even MIT have had to go back to their countries to find jobs...Not that Asia doesn't have enough recruitment but see point below....QuoteOriginally posted by: traderjoe1976My personal opinion is that the entire global economy is going down the crapper. The two main places where the future Finance jobs and Financial centers and Economic growth will be are Singapore and HK. If you are looking into the future beyond five years, you should do what is necessary to position yourself for jobs over there.Somewhat true actually given investing environment is very robust in these places and with Asian wealth growing at a much faster pace... Although it seems in short term a lot of the money flows are driven by US top guns with EM at their mercy.. not sure when will EM dominate its own markets.. 5 years would seem early on first thoughts...Starting your own small fund or going with boutique firms seems like a better bet in these horrible times... but then you don't learn enough to play big...or do you?
