Are there any technology-focused PE funds that specifically recruit from MBB?

1. Advent and Bain Cap both have relatively new tech/growth funds that you can recruit for specifically.
2. Golden gate, H&F, and HGGC tend to be more tech heavy from what I’ve heard. Makes sense given Bay Area location.
3. Most consultant friendly funds will have a software/tech vertical. A lot of those don’t have a generalist model so your experience could be tech focused

Not exclusively MBB, but Vista and Hg have a lot of MBB types

Agreed with all of the above, including A-KKR. You’d find plenty of those working there with a full range of backgrounds. I can’t think of any that hire “specifically” from MBB. They just look to hire talented people.

I would segment it as: 1) IBD only 2) Open to consultants

If 2), then MBB only (few) or open to any firm so as long as they pass interview process

What are some consultant friendly PE funds?

Cove Hill, Charlesbank, Berkshire, Crosspoint all come to mind

Thoma Bravo?

They don’t hire consultants

Why are MBB so particular about B Schools? 😕 Inspite of having a referral from a partner in Bain and relevant experience, wasn't even given an interview opportunity. The only reason I can think of is my B School (just below IIM Indore and along the lines of NITIE, MDI, IIM Shillong) Could there be any other reasons?

MBB - I’m a current senior graduating from a top public school, and I am debating on whether to accept an offer to a masters (non mba) to an Ivy League. One of the factors into my decision is what is the propensity that the resume gets pulled for on campus mbb recruiting, given that undergrads are probably applying as well? I have big brand internships already, and my undergrad school probably scores a 2/3 for brand name. Will recruiting teams put more emphasis on your latest or 1st degree?

Why do Big4 / MBB strategy decks have to be visually appealing to the extent that u spend 10 hours on the template beautification rather than the content?

Folks refer 25 previous decks just to find that good looking visual! Criminal waste of time?
