Private Equity and the Buy Side

Hi everyone, I currently work in a T2 strat consulting and hoping to do an MBA in 2021 (hopefully M7 but let’s see what happens). I worked mostly in pharma top line and graduated in robotics engineering. How can I leverage an MBA to flip to a buy side? Any tips? I’m trying to thinking about this ahead of time in order to be prepared

Busy season was rough, things are looking better now as things return to normal. Still working crazy hours if you count the daycare duties on top of utilization targets.
