What type of consulting leads towards working at a Hedge Fund? I found I love doing analysis but I do it as a hobby and I’m mostly self taught. My background is manufacturing, engineering, and technology. I have a MBA but my business skills in Finance, Accounting, etc. are definitely my weakness. I’m really good at picking stocks because of my background even though my business skills are not as strong. Maybe I’m thinking about this wrong. Any help is appreciated.
