AM From Valuations w CFA?
I was wondering how applicable valuation skills are in AM - and how likely it would be to move to AM after an MBA. I am looking to break into AM long term (dream has always been to become a PM). Will be working at a top valuation shop valuing level 3 portfolio companies (mostly for PE,). I understand that most of my work is more geared towards PE, but I think the work and skills are highly transferable - hoping others will see it that way.
Currently making strong progress on the CFA front - sitting for next exam soon, mid-tier quant work (R/Stata/Python/Palantir [Gotham so it won't be helpful in the private sector]), finance & math major (3.95 GPA), strong LoRs, GMAT 730,
In summary, is this likely? Level 3 Valuations -> MBA (M7) -> AM
What skills can I work on now to improve my candidacy?
