I will be an Investment Banking Summer Analyst at BX/LAZ/HLHZ this summer in the Restructuring group. After my 2 years as an Analyst, I would pursue a career at a top distressed debt hedge fund and then move onto completing an MBA program at an M7 school.
I was curious if any other bankers followed that path and where they ended up (ie HF's, MBA, post-MBA). Furthermore, I have read a few threads on WSO but have not been able to source expected compensation. For a top HF (ie Oaktree, Canyon, etc.) with >$5b, if I came in after my 2 years, what would the typical analyst expect to clear for Year 3 and Year 4?
Lastly, jumping back to the MBA, I was curious about how strong placement into top MBA programs (ie Harvard, Wharton, Columbia, Stanford) have been from the top HF's where you typically see a BX/LAZ/HLHZ banker work.
