I am an MBA (Finance) from 2nd Tier B-School (December 2005 Grad). I am trying hard to get into VC Industry, however, lack of direct I-Banking and/or PE/VC experience are putting my odds against me.
I am planning for CFA Level 1 exam. However, before that I wanted to get the idea on how much worth it would to invest time and money for CFA. Will it give me good base or good position to enter at Entry Level in VC??
Other option, I had, was to get into 1 year MS Program (finance specialization) from Top School. However, after MBA, doing MS, I am not sure, will it be a good move. Also, compared to CFA, 1 year top MS program (Full-Time) are costly too !! However, if that program gaurantees some better success rate in VC program compared to CFA, I would like to go for it.
Please share your experience.
Thanks & Regards,
