IB - PE - HF -> B School?

Current PE associate with compelling HF opportunity I'm looking to take (PM I've known / respected for long time). Only consideration is that I'd like to go to b-school at some point. Career trajectory at this specific fund aside (clear there may not be a path to P&L / senior analyst seat) - will the incremental job over the traditional 2+2 put me at a disadvantage for b-school? Would this help my case for HF recruiting at b-school? For reference, I'd be looking to b-school predominantly for the network (personally as well as professionally) and would be looking for a career track HF seat / more entrepreneurial opportunity upon graduation

Fund is small but well known with high-profile founder. IB + PE experience from EB / MF respectively
