MBB consultant here, total 5 years of experience (of which 3 at MBB). Heading to HBS starting Fall 2022. Super keen on doing a summer internship in PE in-between the two MBA years. How good are my chances (conscious prior PE or IB experience is usually preferred), and what can I do to prepare (any links to resources would be appreciated)?

Why not try to do PE prior to HBS? You might be able to get an offer due to your 3 year MBB experience

If you are DEI, might be possible. Otherwise going to be tough.

Potentially for LMM/MM PE, but the comp there isn’t much better than MBB imo, and I think the people/culture at MBB would be a lot better depending on funds

Is growth equity a similar situation?

Wouldn’t op have a higher chance in PE ops?

Well op didn’t specify deal team vs ops

You will get it if you really want it. All of my HBS classmates from MBB who really wanted PE investment made it. It's just really time consuming and requires focus and dedication. Network like crazy. Learn modelling. Travel to NYC often. Etc

Hi Folks,
Having 3YoE in procurement research and now in a research team at an MBB, I feel I've reached plateau learning-wise. Have been focused in Chemical domain throughout.

I now intend to explore roles on client(Chemical Companies) side (like SCM, Planning, Strategy) but unsure how do I go about it.

What should be an ideal career roadmap for someone like me. How should I prepare/do in order to pivot towards those roles?

PS. I'm a BE Chemical Engineering, and no MBA.

TIA!
