i am an Engineer with Bachelor of Engineering in C.Sc from a mediocre college from India. I am looking for a career in VC firm in India or abroad. I thought of doing MBA, but what i came to know is even if i do MBA from a top b-school like IIM's (quite a few VC firms hire from IIM every year), Finance firms usually dont hire those who have IT experience say 1 or 2 years. So what i am thinking is to clear CFA and then switch to Financial career work for say 2 years and then do MBA from top b-school.... then will i stand a chance to get into PE firm. If i still cant get into, then i can get into investment banking work for 2 or 3 years and then jump to PE firm.
I am specifically interested in VC firm.
In general will CFA help for a career in PE/VC firms.... ??
I thinks this is the best way.
