MF PE Co-Invest -> ???
I know there are a few top Co Invest platforms out there with twp year Associate programs. I'm interested in LMM Buyout in the long term, but currently lack brand names on my resume, and I worry that without a goof brand on my resume I will be hurt in the long term. Does it make sense to take an associate position at a MF Platform if my end goal is to rise through the ranks at a buyout bund with <1BN fund size? Is the transition to buyout possible without an MBA? Thanks for insight from those already on the buyside
