Associate to VP Without MBA
Monkeys,I've seen a ton of info on how to break into banking and PE, how to excel as a junior professional and even some fantastic memes on WSO. What still feels a little fuzzy to me is the process of going from associate to VP without. How do firms think about hiring candidates on a partner track (senior associate and VPs) if they have 2-3 years of PE experience but no MBA? Part of me feels like this would be very difficult since you're basically competing against those coming out of business school, but another part part of me thinks it could be an advantage if you're more flexible on start date and are willing to come in a year below VP. What do you all think?
