Anyone Familiar with Certified Turnaround Professional (CTP)

So I just came across this designation and it looked interesting. I’m very interested in distressed debt and have a good understanding of it. I thought about going for this (actually CTP-D, because of my lack of work experience), but I had never heard of it. Read some pretty impressive articles about it, but that’s it. Is anyone familiar with this? Seems like it may be slightly more useful in IB than AM, but would be beneficial nonetheless.

Just get an MBA

Thinking about that as well and have scheduled to take the GMAT in a few weeks. I’m thinking that I shouldn’t even waste my time outside a top 20 or maybe even top 10. Is that pretty much the consensus?

Drop useless designations. Use the time to network and get to know the finance professionals in your area.
