Is an MBA worth it?
Currently a second year PE associate at a MM fund ($1bn+). A lot of friends/acquaintances from undergrad are now starting at business school. I never thought that an MBA was worth it (no MBA requirement at firm, didn't think it would add value for me, not sure I want to take 2 years off my career progression) but now I am re-thinking it when a lot of these smart people I know are doing it.
I think I want to stay in private equity and don't think a career pivot is in the books for me (not sure I'd want to do consulting or strategy/growth - whatever that means, feel like every job is strategy/growth nowadays) but hoping to hear from anybody in similar shoes who went through this decision recently. Thanks in advance.
