New to this forum and hope to catch some insight. I recently graduated with a BBA in Finance from a state school in Texas and was just hired on as an Analyst in the Portfolio Management arm of a CMBS/special servicing firm. I'm seeking an MBA here in the next year and also want to pursue my CFA designation. I was wondering if anybody had any tips for me about how I can position myself to advance quickly and hopefully move up. I'm also concerned about whether or not this a good starting point for me to get into other areas of finance in the future like IB or PE. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
