undergrad was business finance (University at Albany) and got my MBA at NYU. the financial world treated me really well even though i was a victim of the lehman brother collapse. i realized it was not the direction i wanted anymore so i left morgan stanley. i didn't mind the 60+ hour work weeks since the companies i worked for offered many perks (on call car service, unlimited expense during international business meetings, flexible time etc...).
currently i am a financial executive for a major player in high fashion. the perks are pretty much the same. the pace is slower and less cut throat.
both have similar annoyances but the rewards outweigh them. nyc is known for money and fashion. either route is beneficial.
