I wanted to ask about going into a VC or a from B-school with and without experience. My original plan was to do 2 years IBD, go to B-school, and do VC/HF. However, after realizing that other finance options might be more fitting (ex. capital markets, investment management), the two questions I have are:
- Are there good chances of going into a VC/HF from B-school by using the career changer card, with pre-MBA finance options (those mentioned above that aren't IBD)?
- Would doing IBD compared to the other options pre-MBA give a huge advantage when it comes to first year recruiting for VC/HF?
