Currently working in corporate strategy on the M&A team at Disney, and while I really enjoy my job, I’m wondering if it would make sense to target a pure IB role. I want to get a top tier MBA in 2ish years, and was wondering if I’ll be at a disadvantage from an applicant standpoint given I have no real IB/consulting experience. Long term, I’d like to explore PE roles, so any feedback would be great!

I’d stay at Disney until b school. That sounds like a pretty legit pre MBA role and if you get into a M7, you should get a few IB offers assuming you put in the effort. Pivoting into PE will be harder though post MBA

I posted in the Healthcare bowl but didn’t get quality responses. PE is notorious for being difficult to break into unless you’re IB. However, there are success stories of consultants making it. Healthcare consulting is lucrative because it requires a very niche knowledge base that is honestly rather difficult to acquire. I’m wondering if that niche knowledge base would make it easier to exit to a healthcare-focused PE firm. Thoughts? Also, general tips for moving to PE would be helpful!
