Pre-MBA Private Equity & Hedge Fund
Our coaching program is designed for current investment banking analysts who are shooting for the top private equity firms (mega-funds & upper middle-market) and hedge funds with a long / short strategy. We’re unable to accomodate non-investment banking analysts at this time.
Our team members are current & former Associates at mega-funds and we will walk you through the process, sharpen your deal discussion & stock pitches, refine your behavioral answers and prep you on advanced technicals often seen in these buyside interviews. We customize our coaching to individual client needs. Most of the coaching sessions are done either through the phone or Skype depending on client & consultant preferences.

For candidates undergoing the 2017 Pre-MBA Private Equity Associate recruiting process, we recommend that you start preparing no later than December 2016.
Our consultants are all current & former pre-MBA investment professionals at the world’s leading private equity firms and hedge funds. We’ve not only went through the pre-MBA recruiting process ourselves, but many of us have also screened candidates for our firms. Through participating in these efforts, we’ve enhanced our understanding of how the process works and what is needed to make the cut.
While our consultants all successfully broke into the industry, each of us came from a different background and landed our offers through different means. Some of us came from top banks / MBB while others had to get creative just to convince headhunters to set up interviews. Collectively, we’re familiar with most of the mega firms’ interview structure and we’ll customize our service to match your profile.
