I am carrying out an MBA next 5 decades operating in a front office environment position at a small investment lender in London. I preferred to broaden my choices and just take time out to get a diploma, which seemed like a excellent simply call thanks to the pandemic.

But I assume it was a error. The emphasis for most learners is finding into investment banking or consulting, neither of which I am fascinated in. Specified my track record, would it make much more perception to drop out, save the service fees and spend a yr interning at various firms to get diverse experience, and then apply for a company development/finance position?
