Economic Consulting Potential Exit Opportunities?
I was recently offered a position to work at a top Econ consulting firm which I am very grateful for. However, I was wondering what the common exit opportunities were for econ consultants.
Specifically, I was wondering if anyone was able to successfully work for 1-2 years and transition into roles into hedge funds,, and/or investment research. Also, what about moving into different firms such as F500 firms? Do ECs frequently move onto data science roles or finance roles there successfully?
Is business school almost an implied "must" if I wanted to transition to a different industry/role? I am personally interested in wanting to work in the investment space (specifically public equities) in general and wanted to see if anyone had experience in this and had any tips/advice they were willing to share!
