Interested in economic development in emerging economies. Any room for exclusively focusing on this type of work in PE? And if so, any way for a consultant of 5+ years (minimal deal experience) to have any shot at this type of work at all? No MBA (yet).

You should look at World Bank, ADB, IFC for this sort of work. Quite challenging for traditional financial investors.

Not PE or buyside or lucrative, but if you just care about the content of the work, DFC would be the place to be - they're trying to become the US's answer to Belt and Road. You're a gov employee though.

This question is for recruitment teams across Big 4 and other consulting companies. Where does Department of Financial Studies, University of Delhi stand in terms of your B school tier based ranking? It might be possible that the institution might not in some of the companies' list, given the alumni network is very very low (less than 1000 alumni since inception). But still it has a fairly decent CAT cutoff of 98+ and good for finance I would be happy to know. I am an MBA aspirant.
