Hedge funds are there for anyone with the right skill set and some prestige to back it up. Just need to be aware of openings and do the leg work for networking


Is the question do people graduate mba and go to hedge funds? Yes

That’s because it’s not so much a “path” like consulting. McKinsey will take 50+ people from an M7 class and HFs will have 1 spot and it’ll pop up randomly throughout the year

Hi guys,

I am working as a Data Analyst and wanted to know the importance of the AWS certification and is it required in the analytics field?

If yes, then what all certifications should I consider for the AWS as a Data Analyst?

Is consulting —> mid-sized pharmaceutical company considered good work experience for an mba? I see very few pharma professionals admitted to top programs, so is that because less apply for an mba or because admins think less of the career (or both)

Would MBB buyout my MBA sponsorship from another company? If I go to school as a sponsored candidate and decide to break the contract to go to another firm would the second firm pay out the tuition reimbursement that I now owe to firm 1? Has anyone done this?


Firm will sponsor my MBA, but is it worth going? Two years of lost earnings and no additional gain in promotion trajectory. I know an MBA can be a good two year vacation, but I’m not sure if there’s much more value besides that. 🐠 who did / didn’t take the MBA sponsorship, what was your rationale?

How do adcoms at M7/T15 view Canadian undergrads? Are grades assessed in a different manner? Also, is it a bad time for Canadians to pursue an MBA in the US if they intend to stay and work there post-MBA?


Currently in Chicago making $135 TC w/ 2.5 YOE. I am looking to shift to NYC and am in the last round w/ 2 firms (both T2 like EY-P, OW, LEK). 2 weeks ago I gave salary expectations of ~$160-$170 total comp.

However, today our leadership told me that I would get a $15k retention bonus if I stayed till EOY (they don’t know I am looking to leave). Is this something I can use to negotiate despite mentioning my range recently? Also is it reasonable for someone with 3 YOE to ask ~$180 w/o an MBA?

First year associate here, I feel really unsupported as far as guidance on how to do things so I take a really long time on trying to figure out what the hell I’m doing. The other associates tell me to take my time because I’m still learning and its the partners job to cut the hours but the partner keeps telling me I’m billing too much for things and need to learn to be efficient but the partner never has time for me. My review is coming up soon and I’m scared. How do i bring this up to them?
