Hi
Does anyone know how a year abroad would effect my prospects of going into finance? I know I would apply for spring weeks a week later. Would it make you a better candidate or would they see it as silly and make you a worse candidate?
I'm starting uni this year
Thanks

a week later...? You mean a year later right? I'm unsure how they would view it in a vacuum but so long as you're at a (semi)-target it shouldn't be a huge issue? I'm p sure you could spin it v positively if you utilise it well + can speak the language over there. Assuming its european

It also depends which uni you're at for your year abroad. Lots of UK unis are partners with top euro/US business school's so you may be able to get a global target uni on your CV which would likely help in applications. Aside from this, I don't think it'll give you a noticeable advantage or disadvantage over other candidates unless you develop decent enough language skills

do you have enough knowledge in this area?
I'm not sure what you mean by this. I mean I don't have enough knowledge if I'm asking questions in TSR

Investment banking is very international, they may ask how did you use the year abroad/how have you developed as a person through the experience...

Just make sure you stay on the internship application grind.
