BU certainly isn’t a target for mbb or FAANG, and Sloan obviously is... You can look up employment reports on the school websites to get a pretty good idea of numbers hired by each of those firms

Sloan and BU aren't in even in the same league, more like South Pole vs. North Pole

It isn’t target for MBB

Bain and BCG hire a few from McCombs, I don't think McKinsey does. I'd consider McCombs a regional school like Goizueta, etc.

Dude, do your research. BU and MIT are on COMPLETELY different leagues..

BU's MBA is not strong enough for FAANG/ MBB. MIT is a solid top program, you'll have plenty of options from there.

Doubtful, I'd aim higher.

I wouldn’t.

Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the 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. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.
