Hello Folks - wanted an opinion from you'll. I am currently working for a Long Only fund based in Asia. I have recently accepted an offer (Pre-MBA role) from a Global Long Short Hedge Fund which has a Tiger Background (Tiger Grand Cub). The AUM is slightly less than a Billion Dollar. I just wanted to understand, how does this get evaluated from an MBA perspective? The investment team is full of folks from Harvard/ Stanford/ Columbia, who have previously worked for very well known Tiger Cub HF's and global PE's (including KKR/ Blackstone etc). I know for a fact that, most colleges would prefer pre-MBA candidates working at global PE's like KKR, Blackstone, but I would still want to work for a boutique set up like this, as this place really resonates well with my own investment philosophy. To that extent, I just wanted to know, what would my chances be if people writing recos for me are alums of these colleges and have previously worked at global PE's/ HF's? I am very excited for this role, and really look forward to joining this place, irrespective of my chances of getting into a top B school or not. But since this is a pre-MBA role, I at least want to know what are my chances of getting into a good b school, so that I can accordingly work on other things like GMAT, social work etc? Prior to my current role (1 year in a long-only fund), I have 2.5 years of experience in investment banking. Thanks!
