Are PhD MBB exits any different from MBA MBB exits? Are there cases in which having a PhD is a disadvantage/ advantage against an MBA for a particular exit. My general sense is that PhDs in life sciences can be valuable to securing a post MBB life sciences exit, but what about other types of PhDs like ( economics, applied math, philosophy)?

Can't comment on other industries, but as you said PhD in life-sciences makes it a lot easier to exit to VC roles for example or BD roles in Pharma If paired with good financial acumen.
