Thanks in advance!
Depends on your background now. In this part of the world, most funds don't have a strict MBA requirement for progression so if you already have the requisite experience to get a seat, the MBA is a waste of money. It also costs a lot more than 250k if you add in 2 years of lost income.

If you have aspirations of working in the US, then it makes more sense. On comp, the range is quite large. Megafund PE would be US$250K-300K all-in, mid-mkt PE will be slightly to significantly lower.

What else would you have the OP do, if not for some post grad qualifications
I have pretty much listed every route that is feasible for OP at this point in time. It is already tough as it is, with a rapidly shrinking ER industry since MIFID II.

His best bet would be to lateral into the Transaction Services / Valuation group since he is already in a Big 4, as i mentioned earlier. If he manages to do so, he would be able to acquire the all-important relevant work experience. The rest of the Breaking in is another tall order in itself.

If not, then he would simply have to work much harder on the other aspects.

If you are really hellbent on an MBA and don't mind shelling out SGD130K+, i would suggest giving INSEAD a look. In terms of prestige, it is probably on par with the M7s. It has a campus in Singapore and unlike M7s, it only requires one year to complete.
