    Great article – I am on the verge of finishing my MBA from Kellogg. Will appreciate if you can provide any guidance on switching careers into the PE Industry – My background has been engineering and have worked for 10 years in the field. My major is Finance for my MBA

      Hey Chirag, many thanks. not sure if one can jump to PE industry directly. In most cases, students join an Investment Bank and then move to PE Industry. With your background, you should not find it too tough to enter in this Industry.

      All the very best,

    Thanks for the great article!

    From an Indian perspective, do you think it would be possible for a Chartered Accountant to break into PE with no prior experience? In case yes, should only mid market funds be targeted?

    • wallstreetmojo | DheerajDheeraj says


      there is a possibility of a charted account to break into PE with no experience. I have seen some of my CA friends moving into the investment banking domain and later shifting to Private Equity.

      All the very best,
