I'm interested in going into Private Equity after working in Consulting for a couple years and I want to know
a. how common/difficult is that transition from consulting into private equity
b. is an MBA required or recommended to make that jump. If so, can it be from a Top 25 business school
c. how much does the prestige of the consulting firm play a factor
I'm located in Southern California and am considering my consulting and potential PE career to be within the same relative area.
