Value of MBA in Private Credit
Currently a first-year analyst in PC at/Ares/Apollo thinking about getting an MBA after gaining 4-5 years of experience. Based on my conversations, private equity seems to greatly value the MBA for its general management curriculum and network. Does the same hold for private credit? Do most MDs and Partners at your PC shop have MBAs?
The half-million price tag of going back to school is something that I'm concerned about. However, given how fast the alternative/private credit industry is growing I definitely want to climb the ladder in the shortest amount of time possible.
Would sincerely appreciate any insight.
