Hi All. Have management consulting experience in Healthcare, Telecom, and Public Sector engagements (at Deloitte, 4 yrs). No finance background. Is it even possible to pivot to MM Private Equity (Healthcare focus) after an MBA?

Yes, do IB first for a few years then pivot. Finance > PE is a common route.

PMP test question. Feel like an idiot: took a super intense prep course in March. Because of covid they made it virtual. I really don't learn well in a virtual environment. Then had to postpone taking the test also bc of covid and ended up failing it (test felt nothing like the mock exams). Very deflating. Now 4 months later trying to figure out how much independent study it's going to take to pass it. Any tips or encouragement? Would like to knock it out in the next 2-3 weeks.

I don’t really see the value of MBA for me now, and alternative cost of not earning for a year or two isn’t very appealing as well (from Middle East, plan to relocate to Europe)
