and others: It would be great if you could help me out with this:
I am a Chartered Accountant (cleared all exams in first attempt). I have a background of having worked in the field of debt syndication for corporate clients for a year now. Now I have got a call from IIM Kozhikode.
I wish to pursue my career in IB. From what you have posted, Front end Investment Banking is something difficult to land up into from anything except IIM A/B/C and XLRI through campus recruitment. So now I have 2 questions:
1. Will doing my MBA and spending 2 years at IIMK have any value addition to my prospects of getting into an Investment Bank?
2. With my CA background can i expect IBs in IIMK campus recruitments to make exceptions and offer Front end role(s)?
