Is HBS worth it for VC?
I did a fewand am now finishing up my Associate stint in PE. I applied to business school this fall and fortunately got into HBS, so now I have a decision to make: Should I go?
My goal is to transition ideally to late-stage VC at the likes of an Accel Growth, Sequoia Growth,Growth, IVP, NEA, etc. I know for earlier-stage VC start-up experience is key, but it looks like the growth teams at these places are a bit more friendly to the IB/MBB -> PE background. So based on that, it looks like a job I could be competitive for now, which begs the question of why even get an MBA at all? Yes there's value in the HBS brand and the network I'd make there, however I'd argue the value of both those things is decreasing each year. I'm looking at ~$200K in savings / loans plus another ~$400K+ in opportunity cost and asking myself, is HBS really worth that much if I can go get the job I want now anyway?
Would love people's thoughts, especially those in VC / Growth already.
