    Hello,
    I am a French student at EDHEC Business School, and I am currently doing my gap year, which for a French person means finding internships.

    I want to work in strategy consulting later and I am wondering which internship would be best regarded and what are the pros and cons of each option:
    -M&A in an investment bank
    -Private Equity / Venture Capital
    -Strategy in a CAC40 firm

    My background:
    I am doing my Master's in Management. Currently interning in the US in a NASDAQ-listed tech firm, as a corporate development analyst (market studies, acquisition target research, creation of financial report for the company's management..).
    I also studied / performed an internship in HK.

    Thanks for your help =)

    You should be able to make 10 or so strong applications and focussing on strategy would seem sensible. For Strat consulting, then working in a blue chip company would probably be more valuable than working in IB or similar.
