Hedge fund recruitment out of INSEAD [#permalink] New post 09 Nov 2011, 15:40
Hi guys, first post.

I am considering an MBA at INSEAD and would like to know if anyone is familiar with hedge fund placement for INSEAD graduates. I know that the school places 20% of graduates into financial services, but that includes investment banking and other roles that I am not interested in.

I have six years of investing experience (7 at 2012 January intake), including 3 years currently at a well known hedge fund, and am a CFA Charterholder. Based on experience and my stats, I think I might be a good fit for INSEAD.

But I'm wondering if INSEAD will be a good fit for me. I want to take my career in a more global direction (I'm American with some work experience in Asia), specifically transfering to a different hedge fund after graduation. Given than I am 29 already, I do not think a traditional 2 year MBA program is a likely bet for me, hence INSEAD. I have been trying to change jobs already to another hedge fund, but am having difficulty finding a good fit, I think largely because I do not have an MBA.

Any feedback appreciated -- thanks.

In financial services, INSEAD has good reputation for placing students in private equity. But, I am not sure if it ranks higher than Booth or Harvard for placing you in hedge funds. I understand you are looking for one year MBAs. I don't think there is any other school better than INSEAD in that category. It might be the best school that can take you to the next stage of your career in hedge funds. If you stretch to 15 months, LBS might enter the race. The placement stats for Hedge funds that you are looking for will hover around 2%. But, that should not dictate your decision. There are only a handful of such jobs out there in that industry. Speak to few alumni/current students of INSEAD, and take a decision.
