Any MBB consultants here that did not go to a Top Tier college? I didn’t come close to going to a top tier school, but have 6 years of big 4 experience and a CPA. Wondering if it’s worth a shot

^ disagree with Harvard only but would agree you shouldn’t waste your time. You’re best bet would have been to get the cpa asap and tried after 1 year at big 4 and taken the lowest level

A top tier MBA is within your reach and puts you in the biggest hiring group. We don’t hire as many post-undergrad level people

Have a Masters from a decent private. But again, not top tier and not an MBA lol

I went to a middling undergrad (top 30) but was strategic about where I got my mba

Yeah a ton. Stop being a huge nerd about it. It’s a job. They’re not super heroes

Take it easy Big D

Hello! I will be attending an unranked B-school in London this fall. I chose the school for a handful of reasons (family, time, program, budget) and even before I have determined that I want to become an MBB consultant post MBA. I come from an EM country, 10 years in Financial Services from brand-name global firms. Undergrad - Foreign Service. Realistically, what are my chances of getting into MBB as a consultant? Do I even have a shot at an associate consultant role?

I work in insurance defense and we are getting slammed as far as workload and have been for some time. It’s nice because I haven’t had to beg for billable work and always hit my goals.

Has anyone tried anything during the pandemic?
