Just wanted to canvas opinion as to what would be 'better' - obviously both are good.

In particular; how do you traders balance the lack of exit opportunities and why are you M&A guys willing to give up your twenties?

Pick the internship you are most itching to know the answer this question.

Personally, I would do M&A, but that's because trading and BB prestige doesn't interest me.

This question has been beaten to death throughout the internet (and in this forum).

Apples and oranges hombre. In most cases I would say just go for the one you're most interested in.

However, if you did a summer in trading and then decided you wanted to do M&A (or vice versa), I would have to ask which banks you have offers from specifically? Because for M&A grad roles at some banks for example, depending on which bank you were at for your SA, a summer in trading might actually open more doors for you for than a summer in M&A
