You may want to look at these for some certifications that would you more marketable for M&A. If others disagree, I would be interested in hearing your feedback on these certs and D's original question with more context.

What part of the deal process? This is the broadest question I’ve seen. And no there’s no certs that make u an “m&a expert"

Agree with the value of certs. What is more helpful is evidence that you know your stuff.

I would never hire someone based on some certifications. If you are looking at a fresh out of school role then it can be a differentiator, beyond that there is nothing you are going to do beyond getting some actual deal cycles that will matter.

The TMA stuff is good, but only if looking at restructuring. Does not help for M&A in my view

Not crazy about deal certifications. Think the best is always ACTUAL deal experience.

Is it me or is the high finance track (IB, PE, HF) not worth it anymore? Seems like there’s more stress and long hours and money isn’t worth it. Also the people in it don’t even seem “cool” anymore. Most people just seem very insecure and stressed and not enjoying life at all. To me the tech route (whether as a dev or a business person), seems so much better. There’s more opportunity and less stress. Also people are more progressive and open. Any thoughts? Feel free to agree or disagree.

Hi all,

Need some advice on my next career move. I'm 31, have an MBA and am currently a SC in Risk Advisory with no M&A experience. I am good at risk consulting work but don't find it very challenging or interesting. That said, I expect to get promoted to M next year.

Recently, I interviewed with another Big 4 firm for SC in CDD M&A team and have got an offer. I enjoyed doing the CDD case study, and I believe I'd do well in the role.
