Any recommendations on RE investment/development short professional certificates/courses? MIT’s “Profesional Certifícate Program in Real Estate Finance and Development” seemed like a great fit, but I can’t make it work time wise.

Time wise I could easily take a couple of weeks off in July or take online courses. North East preferred!

Hi fishes. Is it a fact that PWC payscale is relatively low compared to other Big4s?
I have been approached by PwC HRs twice in last 2 months, both times they did not even shortlist me stating that my expected CTC is high.
YoE =6.5yrs + 2yrs tier2-MBA
Expected CTC= 1.4x
2nd time they approached, I even brought down my exp CTC to 1.3x. Still they said PwC does not have budget.
I already have offer of 1.45x from another Big4. Its only PwC that is not budging. :(
Is an MBA required to get senior leadership roles in Canada? I always find myself wondering if, down the line, I will regret not doing an MBA. However, my peers (with and without MBAs) don’t seem to think MBAs are needed in Canada if you have the right experiences. Would love to hear more opinions on this
Any thoughts on how a Senior Account Director for a B2B SaaS co. with a diverse book (across multiple verticals; including some pretty big logos) could pivot into consulting? Have an MBA in finance and media mgmt fwiw.
Does S& or PwC finance part time MBA? If so, what are the requirements and how much do they cover? Thanks!

2. Transport allowance: 900 one way, 1800 two ways p.m./ 21,600 p.a.
3. Internet: 1500 max p.m. (other than that, one time installation charges)
4. Tuition fee: Any certification related to your field. Like CFA, FRM etc. 3,00,000 p.a.
Anyone here know what an FPX certification is? Curious, a few roles at J&J have a requirement for it but I can't find anything online.
I am having 2 years experience in SAP MM, SAP MII and Supply Chain Management with a popular certification. I am understanding what kind of opportunities I can get in McKinsey. Can anyone be kind enough to throw a light?
I am in the process of finishing up my MBA but considering also getting my SPHR or PHR cert. Is it even worth it or a waste of time and money?
Am I the only person who has been super disgusted to Fishbowl’s response to the Meta layoffs? I’ve been laid off twice in my career but I’m not mad at 11000 people who no longer have jobs just cause they got decent severance while I got a week on my way out. Facebook is hot garbage but I’m pretty sure 0 out of the 11000 were making those decisions. So why are you upset about it? Urgh. Y’all are weird.
Hi Fishes, Can i get the likes 🙂 to unlock the chats please. Thank you in advance.. 🙂🙂@

If you’re an AUSA in a busy criminal district full of big law refugees (SDNY, NDIL, CDCA, etc.), how many hours a week do you work if you’re trying to get promoted? Is it big law hours? Is there at least some relief from big law type issues like fire drills? I can’t imagine there being the same type of white collar fire drills if you’re the one creating them for big lawyers. Any truth in that assumption?
Feeling depressed. Married but going through a rough phase in life . Male here. Anyone else having same problems or any problem and feels extremely lonely in this world. Let me know if anyone is near Maryland and would consider meeting for a drink or just chat………hope everyone has a great July 4th.

Sincere question- as a Pakistani born and settled in the US, I have many indian friends. We generally have some healthy debates. One of the arguments I find hard to debate is that we have some (indians and Pakistanis) have the same forefathers; Arab countries refuse to consider us pure Muslims and our many of our forefathers were forcefully converted. How do you argue it? I feel it’s factual and find it hard to accept.
Additional Posts in M&A - Mergers and Acquisitions Professionals
Those of you who are in supporting functions Human Capital, Digital etc., where do you source your deals from? Does it come from the Strategy / FDD teams always or have you been able to get deals of your own? (I have a M&A related offer on the table and I am considering it. Not in M&A currently)
The OneOncology Strategic Finance team is hiring an analyst. Feel free to DM for more info https://lnkd.in/dPmvthg
Does PwC DDV do ODD or only SMO/IMO separation?
Leadership was close to moving M&A Tax into PwC Advisory. Not sure that changes or enhances how we already work with Deals teams. Culturally I don't think its a fit.
For those in corporate development, can you talk about the financial modeling aspect of the job? How detailed do you get? Full three-statement or something much simpler? 50 tabs or less? It would be helpful if you could say what size company and whether it’s public or private. Thanks!
McKinsey & Company Bain & Company McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group what are the main services you offer within M&A group?
Any independent M&A professionals here? Curious what advisory services should cost. We are going to start a roll up. Starting with our agency (7mill revenue) hope to end 2021 at $20 mill.
I am a strategy consultant and just landed a role where I am expected to work with M&A in addition to strategy. Is there any good course to learn the whole M&A cycle as well as financial modeling. I can pay up-to $2k if it’s a paid course.
Starting new SC M&A role after 3 YOE in ERP and tech consulting. I have 3 weeks to learn as much as I can so I don’t sound like an idiot on my first day. I bought some books, how would you prep?
Can anyone share their experiences on the key differences in role and from Manager to Director? This morning I landed a Corp Dev director role in an adjacent industry. Have 5YOE and will go from 170k to 245k TC. Feeling a bit nervous after landing it but willing to put in the grind. Thank you in advance!
Going on my first PMI project, wondering what's the normal team size and project length? And do they differ for a corporate M&A vs. PE portfolio M&A?
New to Fishbowl?

I’ve seen a lot of people (8-10) go into TRS
Made the switch from EY consulting to EYP. If it helps, feel free to DM me.
I’ve made the switch from deloitte to EYP as a consultant w/o MBA. Happy to chat about my experience!
Looking to go from Deloitte FDD to EYP
FDD specifically isnt within EYP, so technically no. However you can use your skillset to recruit for TRS which does restructuring. If you want to continue to do FDD it’s within SaT
Just out of curiosity, is FDD a good pathway to IB/PE?
Yes for IB.. PE would likely have to follow the ib stint
I have a few coworkers that made the exit to PE ops, PE deal teams are harder to get into. If you go straight to PE from FDD I wouldn’t expect to find a job at an upper market firm/fund without IB experience
