From consulting to investing / lending - anyone has guidance on how to make the move? I’m a consulting manager with finance experience pre-MBA. Thinking about pivoting into investing / lending but struggle to find an angle - assumed that it would be hard to break into investing but lending would be great (all the way from corporate banking to mezz). Any guidance on seeking relevant experience while in consulting?

The school I work is an amazing research university and offers free tuition for employees but pays me $45k a year.
This school now offers a Master of Science in Data Science and Business Analytics, it can be 1.5-2years. I don’t mind the time.
There is another great boot camp program for data science not to far, it only offers a certificate but it takes about 10 months.
My questions is: Because there is a boot camp for Data Science, how would my masters look for employers (and vice versa).
