MBA for PE?
Quick background on myself:
- Business degree, Chartered Accountant, and CFA Charterholder
- Worked as an accountant for a number of years, earning the Charter proved helpful in recently making the switch into (boutique) IB
Very satisfied with my new career presently, but my long term (multi-year) ambition is to get into private equity.
So to the original question, I’m thinking that at this stage of my (decade-long) career, I have a sufficient number of ‘letters’, and now it’s all about accruing good deal experience - which I am in my current role - and building my network.
However, interested to hear opinions/advice from those with PE experience - in terms of the strategic and operational side of the industry, how much value would an (E)MBA materially add to my future candidacy? Or, given the above, would I be seen as having sufficient skills and experience to be considered?
Thanks in advance for your insights.
