I'm beginning a 2-3 year program as a pre-MBA associate at a reputable upper MM PE fund in NY.
Following the eventual conclusion of my 2-3 year Associate program, I would like to try to make the move to Asia. I can speak an Asian language fluently, but not Mandarin Chinese.
1) Does anyone have any experience / examples of this? 2) Are most professionals pushed back as first year Associates? 3) Is the US PE skill set relevant? Or do most people start out in banking then transition?
Any experience that you can share would be very helpful.
