Macquarie Capital vs MM Infra PE which one should I choose?

Hi, I would like to seek advice whether I should choose Macquarie Capital (principal investing role) or one of MM Infra PE (Total AUM ~$20-30bn) out of undergrad position.

Just to be clear, I don't have offers at any of these places yet. But if I were to choose one of these choices, which career choice would be better for me in terms of 1) future career options, 2) salary and 3) MBA options?

I know Macquarie is the biggest name brand in infra, but at the same time it is extremely difficult get into PE out of undergrad, so I was wondering which one would be better option.

I would greatly appreciate your advice!

Mira is not part of MacCap. 

Both of OPs options seem perfectly fine but I'd see what career trajectory is possible at the infra fund without need to go off to business school.

Just adding to this. In MIRA, and I can say that across Macquarie it seems like B-school isn't a requirement to advance.
