For Post-MBA Associates: M&A, S&T, ER, or AM

Curious to know what the pros and cons (and comp) for each of these are.

I am planning to do my MBA at a T15 in Sep 2023 with no prior finance experience.

M&A seems to be the most common route for post-MBA associates and is the one I'm leaning towards.
