I need some inputs on if I should pursue a MBA. Goal that I would use MBA for is getting into VC, only a undergrad internship in that space, or doing a search fund and like micro PE. I would consider corporate VC too. Alternative is to focus on meetups to meet founders, getting a better job and hit the accredited investor status so I can invest with angels. Undergrad was a top business school, so I feel strong with finance and other functions.

Mba isn’t necessary at all for traditional VC or corporate VC. Start networking and prepping for interviews, the job market is so hot right now.

H/S/W your only options for MBA, which you may need if you're at deloitte right now. Networking in either scenario will be required.

This not the case anymore. Source: went from Deloitte > M7 > VC. Have met folks in VC with consulting backgrounds who went to Kellogg, Tuck, CBS, Anderson, and Ross off the top of my head.

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain?
