Are there any non-quant funds that'll train you from scratch

Currently a second year at an MBB and interested in learning more about the markets, so I'm curious about hedge funds. Are there any firms that train you from scratch and don't expect you to have much financial knowledge? 

I'm also heading to a top MBA in a few years through deferred admission (Harvard/Stanford), would an MBA help?

Ideally looking for something pre-MBA, so Bridgewater has come up, but it seems like they'd just hire me at the recent college grad entry level.
