    What sets of decisions would you recommend me taking in order to live the lifestyle of the higher-middle class Beverly Hills young women?

    My background: French, 22, female, white (minority), lower class within the French socio-economic structure, Oxbridge graduate (non-technical BA), some limited work experience at 1 or 2 good firms.

    I am basically thinking of doing a specialised masters with chartered qualification in HR / financial advisory / accounting or programming language (such as Java/Python) and moving to US for the career and focus all of the time and energy on working until 30. Then getting a good MBA for a senior position, and by the age of 33 I should be there.

    Is this attainable? What are the alternative routes you would recommend, which are of course realistic

    I love TSR

    Naturally, I have considered it. I was an intern at one of the major banks - not in IB though, I don't think I am up to the standard for IB roles, so I'd prefer something more attainable. I could be a broker as I speak English and French. I was also thinking about joining firms focused on profit-maximalisation with chartered qualifications and just sticking to my role in the firm and being best at it.
