Looking to get some input from those who have either done an MBA and are in a credit hedge fund role or are familiar with the post-MBA recruitment opportunities within credit. Are there any benefits to attending an MBA program (e.g. top 7 MBA excluding H/S/W) in terms of academics, perception, network? Or is it a waste of time and money and more useful to just recruit from a current credit buyside role? Looking specifically within New York.
Coming from someone with ivy undergrad, 5 years work experience (2 IBD, 3 HY credit asset management), looking to get into stressed/distressed/opportunistic type credit roles - some funds coming to mind include GSO, HPS, Oaktree, TPG Sixth Street, etc. Please feel free to PM for more info on background. Any insight or color is much appreciated.
