It’s a really stupid industry convention that people don’t want MBAs without PE experience.... but it do be like that

I know that’s the logic but it’s kind of BS. We have MBA interns and they do all that stuff .... and then they don’t get hired by any PE firm. 🤷🏼‍♂️ Guess the industry needs its arbitrary sorting mechanism.

Very hard. MF PE (most PE) doesn’t want to hire post MBAs without pre MBA experience. You could maybe come in as like a senior asc or something

What’s the best consulting specialty for exiting into a top tier PE’s Ops group? Should I stay in strategic transformation consulting or strive to get in M&A strategy or restructuring? I have 2 YOE, currently focusing on strategic transformation work. Do I need an MBA (non-target UG)? Should I wait till I get promoted to an EM before looking for an exit? Does being a part of PE Ops team mean pretty much being a temporary co-executive at a portfolio company? Feel free to destroy my naiveté
