As a new grad, B4 strat is the no-regrets option because it will likely keep more doors open. MC definitely would have some advantages over B4. Data is the competitive edge the payment networks' consulting arms have over more generalist consultancies so you would probably have a good chance of doing data work at MC. Also, MC probably doesn't do any big implementation work that could get you stuck on a multi-year PMO. However, you can do analytical work at a B4 without running the risk of accidentally specializing in FS

Go for it. You can still take your b4 offer later.

This is not how it works. If the big 4 asks then to start in Jan and they are working for MasterCard, they'd have to reneg on the offer.

Also wanted to add that the start date still isn't immediate so money/time doesn't matter so much -- more just the breadth of career opportunities

Master card hands down
