currently working as an investment analyst (less than a year but have 3 other finance internships ib and vc) at a smaller GP repe firm and would like to eventually end up at a large firm (top 20) and was wondering what advanced degrees/networking/other things I could do to get me to that next step.

Was considering MSF/MSRED/MBA/MBA-JD? Or would a certification be better?

Thanks!!

Top MBA is your best bet. Or just get some deals under your belt and network.

I'd say pick 2 and go for it. Getting a MSF and MSRED back to back could truly boost your credentials and get you in front of some big name PE people

Definitely would not suggest picking two. It's a waste of time and money. MSRED or MBA are most relevant. The better the school, the better your chances. However, at the end of the day, it's how hard you network that will make or break you chances.

Maybe even do all three
