Yes, although rarely if your previous experience is a perfect fit (and yes, perfect or near perfect is important) for the fund’s strategy and industry focus. My friend got one of two internships out of his class at one of the funds you listed above

Yes

I mean for the portfolio / strategy / “consulting” team, not deal side

KKR and Vista definitely do

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA?

Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

I really want to do an MBA, but recently lost a family member, and now have an elderly dependent to take care of. All my target schools will require me to move country.

Anybody managed to do an MBA with dependents and have recommendations on how to get around this situation?
