Physical commodity trading to MBA
My first post here. I am currently a trader of bulk commodities at a top tier physical commodity trading shop (Glencore/Vitol/Traf) who is looking to make a career pivot and evaluating the merits of an MBA programme to help me achieve that.
I had a few questions that I hope some fellow members might be able to shed some light on as I havent seen alot of people with my background go down this path.
I joined my firm from undergrad and worked my up through various functions into a spot on a trading desk over the past 5 years, how is physical commodities trading perceived by top US MBA schools?
I dont have previous finance experience, beside a summer internship in BB IBD and a year spent on the risk desk, I am looking to move into more project based work within the energy space, preferrably at a VC or PE fund, what do you think the likelihood of achieving this is?
