Traditionally, the financial services industry seeks to recruit the brightest students, and it is still a very attractive destination. Today, there is a great demand not only for top qualified specialists with a broad knowledge base and – it goes without saying – international experience. If you are aiming for sustained success in this challenging and competitive environment, you must be able to offer more:
You need to be able to plan and think in the long term, assess and manage risks, and you must never lose sight of the big picture. The ideal candidate must be capable of rigorously applying theoretical knowledge to practical settings, whether as a manager in a bank, an insurance company, a private equity or venture capital firm, or as manager of a hedge fund. And even in the management consulting industry (restructuring), the public sector, in science and research the specialist Master's graduate will stand out from the crowd.
