Would CBS J-term make sense if you want to transition from MBB to a US start-up or FAANG?

I would argue you don’t need an mba if you’re already at mbb trying for start up or fawns.

Got it. So then I’m not really sure. Haven’t met anybody like that/not in my networkz. I’m sure others can opine.

All FAANG are different so I’d say a summer internship is helpful to figure out which one to join. For that reason, I don’t think J term makes sense.

J-term at CBS isn't exactly ideal for transitioning industries. You miss out on the 1st year recruiting cycle, and anyways are doing classes through the summer. Could probably find some sort of part-time start-up internship during a semester, but you're probably better off just enrolling in a standard program.
