Yes, it makes perfect sense because It’s almost impossible to break into without pre-MBA investment banking or private equity experience. Most firms recruit 99% from investment banking analyst classes.
And if you are ever wanting to persue Corporate Development, while it’s still not “easy,” it’s definitely easier than the others on this list; pre-MBA banking experience helps but it’s not necessary.
