Is it possible/common to leave Big 4 strategy arm into PE? Any advice on how to?

Not common, but network network network. And by network I don’t mean shmoozing, I mean having friends or people who can vouch for you professionally in the above the position or group you want to join.


big oof - wish I could edit that this is for post MBA, not UG - I know UG can pretty easily.

EYP - I feel you. My wife is on the investments side.... perks of a Wharton undergrad, lol. I’m on the Ops side... perks of an SEC undergrad degree...


Interested as well. I am currently in PE but it’s a two year gig. Thinking of doing an MBA after but not sure how I can return back to the industry.

I think it's pretty common for people w/ PE experience to go back into PE after their MBA. You can do unpaid internships during your full time program to help bolster your chances.
