Hi guys. I have two offers, one from a Big 4 accounting firm for IT Audit and another from a high-street Retail bank for Technology graduate programme. A few years down the line I would like to move into the Technology division of an Investment bank, probably after doing an MBA. I wanted to know as to which offer will increase my chances to get into investment banking.
The IT Audit experience will also earn me an ACA qualification, but the Technology program in the Retail bank will give me a good technical experience in IT. I am very much confused in this regard as I have heard that people have a better chance to get into investment banking with an ACA. But is the ACA qualification also beneficial if I am looking to get into Technology division, that’s the biggest confusion for me.
Which offer would you guys advise me to take given my circumstances.
