Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA?

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.
