Hi all,

Im relatively new here and I've been reading the posts on this website concerning University of Manchester (The Uni im currently studying at) and its link with investment banking. The opinion here that i've ascertained is that its a neither here nor there when it comes to UoM being a target university. That being said, I would like advice of my prospects, as an international student, of getting a penultimate year internship or even a graduate internship which I could convert into a full-time offer at an investment bank.

Background Info:

Im currently going into my second year at UoM's Business school with a Bsc in Management, specialising in Accounting and Finance, I finished the year with a First and would like to replicate my results for the second and third year. Work experience wise, I've spent two years in the Military (I was an officer) and after that I worked in Citibanks private wealth management department for 4 months as an intern. This summer I am currently a Summer Analyst at a Private equity firm which is rather large (name with-held but it is one of the top 10).

Do I stand a shot at competing with other higher tier Uni's such as Oxford, LSE, Warwick etc? Will I be able to secure a penultimate internship with the available experience? What are my prospects for a full time offer from a bulge bracket firm if I were to do a penultimate year internship in IB?

If anyone here could give me advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

Depending on what you are looking for, I can answer this. There is certainly a place for you in an investment bank's finance department or corporate treasury and some firms have Military Veterans programmes that you can apply to that can get you into these areas (as an officer, you won't necessarily have to start at the bottom through these programmes).

If on the other hand you want to be in the front office then my honest answer is I don't have a clue. For what it is worth I think you have a rock solid CV though.
