Shall I do a MBA to pursue a PE career?IB
I have been thinking for the past few weeks regarding whether to pursue a MBA given my situation. Would be great if some experienced people here could give me some valuable opinions.
I have a finance postgraduate degree already from a top UK university (think oxbridge, LSE etc). I have more than 2 years of BB investment banking experience in London. Currently i work at a megafund (think KKR, , TPG etc) in Asia.
I would one day want to work in the U.S or go back to London to work in either PE or HF.
My question is that should i pursue a top MBA (Harvard, stanford etc) in the U.S in order to work in HF or PE in the U.S? I would like to know my chances of getting into a good HF or PE in the U.S? MBA is indeed very expensive, so i would like to make a well-informed decision here.
My concerns are firstly i will need to get a work HF, as i dont think HF really values MBA that much. PE does value MBA, but i am not sure how competitive i will be going against other ppl who are also after post MBA PE opportunities.to work in the U.S, some employer might not like this. secondly I dont really have mature market (U.S or Europe) buyside experiences, I have good Asian PE experiences but not sure how relevant it is if i want to work in the U.S. thirdly from my experience i am not sure how valuable MBA is to break into
Thank you so much!
