I’m looking at doing a weekend/part time MBA as someone on the marketing & IR side in PE, specifically something like the Booth Business Fellows.

How would you go about asking for a potential recommendation from your current team, especially if you’re looking to grow within your current team and have no plans to leave?

I would explain exactly that. You want to expand but you still want to grow with your current team and have no intention of abandoning them.

I joined several months ago, so I’m a little concerned about telling them I’m looking to do 2/3 years flying back and forth to Chicago on weekends.

Took my CISA exam yesterday through online proctoring. Launched the exam 30 mins early since I wanted to make sure things went smoothly. Took 20 mins for the proctor to verify everything before checking me in. About a third of the way through my questions the proctor popped into the chat saying stop whispering and moving you mouth. Totally put me on edge as I was just reading through to better understand the question. That threw me off a bit.

Kinda confused when calculating IRR/MoM in LBO, especially when it comes to net debt. When buying the company, you are responsible for refinancing the exisiting net debt (ie the PE firm has to take out bank notes / equity to cover the net debt), but when you are exiting the company, you have to use your own proceeds (EBITDA upon exit x Exit Multiple) to pay off the remaining debt. Why would you having to pay off your own debt when exiting? Why won’t the buyer be on the hook for refinancing
