Hi all. Currently at university majoring in MIS, graduating this Spring, just accepted a full time Consulting role at Crowe in the Cloud Solutions discipline. I know it’s early for this, but I’d like to get into Product Management for a FAANG caliber company, and am not sure what career path I should try to focus towards. Should I be working towards an MBA? What positions should or shouldn’t I be working towards to set my resume up? Any certs to check out? How many YOE might I need? Thanks a ton

Thoughts on CAIA? Difficulty, hours studied, study tips, overall experiences, etc.? I’ll be sitting for Level 1 in September.

I’m almost one year out of undergrad (econ background) so a lot of the CAIA content is new to me
