I know of people who did this, all of whom pivoted from grad school. This is a hard transition without some sort of masters degree reset. Quant trading is an incredibly competitive and intellectually complex field. Masters programs you should look into and use as a pivot are: CMU Computational Finance, MIT Mfin, Princeton MFin, NYU Mathematical Finance, Baruch Financial Engineering

I did it the other way around, quant trading to Strategy Consulting. You need an incredibly thick skin and exceptional quantitative skills.

In my experience Strategy Consulting is incredibly easier than Quant Trading

Have others found it hard to transition from Audit to Financial Analyst? All the recruiters I’m meeting with are telling me I probably won’t get an interview since they’re looking for someone who’s ready to hit the ground running.
It’s discouraging because I’m a fast learner, and from talking to my friends who are Financial Analysts, it doesn’t seem like what we do is so dissimilar.

I have been looking at the curriculums for Harvard Business School's Master of Business Administration and Harvard Extension School's Master's in Management. They both have the same requirements, generally speaking, including a field immersion course that serves as a capstone in the Master's in Management, which is fairly new. If I am not able to gain admission to Harvard Business School, but wanted a similar educational experience to become a consultant, should I attend Harvard Extension?
