I am coming from a top-tier investment bank and I am weighing my options to see whether or not I should go to LSE now or wait 2-4 more years and get my MBA from what I hope will be a top MBA program. I'm not sure where I see myself long-term, but I want a degree that will open many doors to me despite whichever direction I ultimately choose to go in.

I understand that an MBA is viewed as the standard pedigree for many finance professionals. However, I am considering LSE because of its academic rigor, international focus and reputation. One PE managing director strongly encouraged me to go to LSE and then work for a few years before getting an MBA. I would prefer to only earn one master's if possible from both a time and financial perspective.

Any thoughts on the differences in recruiting and/or career options?
