I'm in a similar position and am leaning towards taking the role if I get it. Assuming you're in your early to mid 20's then I don't think there's any issue delaying b school a few more years. The relevant experience will only make your case to employers stronger and if things go really well well then you may not even need b school.

Neubergner Berman as an Analyst on their Mortgages and Real Estate Strategies team...is it a bad idea to switch now ? Should I just hit Consultant level, go to B school and attempt to come in as an Associate (or whatever the equivalent is) ?

Neuberger Berman*

Whats your background in?

Top 10 public university 👌🏻 🔥

Mid 20's. But that's my thinking as well D1! The work itself sounds fantastic and 2 years of Asset Mgmt plus MBA could open up a ton of doors at most Buy side firms (I would imagine)

I stand corrected. It is a top 15 public university* haha

Take it

Thanks OP for the post :)

I'm not sure why I'm being thanked? But you're welcome !

Is it hard to jump from MIS related roles to finance related roles with no back ground? Do companies hire people who want to jump but have no background in it?

In my experience yes. Unles you can translate your quant skills to the finance side

PwC2 why you hating on public schools?

Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career. I’m currently reading sales books, watching Keenan’s YouTube channel, and learning all I can. I’m relentlessly applying for SDR positions but I’m having trouble landing interviews (been applying through LinkedIn). I would appreciate advice from anyone who transitioned from another industry into sales. How did you break the barrier?

Transitioned into consulting post-MBA (1.5 years ago) and generally enjoyed the experience.

Since then I’ve learned that one of my classmates (started 2-3 months before me due to COVID) was promoted last cycle.
