MBA’s don’t mean absolutely anything in terms of being a successful IB MD. You measure your success by your personal brand in the sense of building a strong relationship network, effectiveness at getting deals done (more so your track record is one of the biggest indicators of success), etc.

Nope. The MBA certainly could be helpful to your personal network as you gain tenure (and so does your class), which will facilitate bringing in new clients. Otherwise in Europe the post MBA associate route is less competitive to someone who has investment banking experience as an analyst.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance.

Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
