Do you guys think MBA programs next year will suffer from a lack of international cultural diversity since many international students may have to defer?
A-game questions to ask a principal in a quick coffee chat? Recruiting for MBA summer internship.
Not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question, but engineering MS degree (e.g. applied stats, CA) vs MBA if I wanted to do product management? I am a 2nd year BA looking to go back to the States via grad school (was initially kicked out cuz of Trump) so debating which option would be better if i wanted to transition into PM. My undergrad major was Econ
MBB - I’m a current senior graduating from a top public school, and I am debating on whether to accept an offer to a masters (non mba) to an Ivy League. One of the factors into my decision is what is the propensity that the resume gets pulled for on campus mbb recruiting, given that undergrads are probably applying as well? I have big brand internships already, and my undergrad school probably scores a 2/3 for brand name. Will recruiting teams put more emphasis on your latest or 1st degree?
Need Advice: I recently cleared the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam which inspired me to go for one other cert in the cloud world. However, I am confused if I should go for the next AWS cert (Solutions Architect) vs Google’s Cloud Digital Leader cert? Can anyone recommend anything here? Goal is to move out of consulting asap and get into FANG. TIA!
Is it worth joining MBB firm? How does it impact your long term growth? Recently promoted to senior manager in tech consulting space and I am considering to take a paycut (about 50k) to join Mckinsey at post MBA consultant level. I want to hear feedback from MBB fish here. Most of my friends think it's a bad move..
How much of a value-add are Exec MBAs? I've not come across many of them. Been in IB for 9 years (no MBA) and wonder if it's something I do around the time I try to move up?
Applying for NYU One Year Tech MBA for May 2021 start. I’m currently making 120k. I can probably hit 200k in 5 years but I’m also 34. Is it worth it to get my MBA and pay 140k to work at MBB or FAANG?
MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.
Thoughts on exiting to IB subsidiaries of public accounting firms (big 4 corporate finance, baker tilly capital, bdo capital, etc). I know they’re not necessarily equivalent to going to a BB or even a pure play MM IB but can they still open up good exits and create better MBA prospects than say transaction services experience?
I want to do a online/ part-time graduate program while doing my full-time job. Would like to know what non-MBA programs are other folks pursuing, if any.
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
New to Fishbowl, currently working on a career pivot! I graduated in May with my MBA and have experience as a Director of Operations as well as recruiting and HR experience. I am looking to move more into Change/Project Management or Director of People Operations roles.

Feeing a little defeated over here. Thank you!
If you come from non-target undergrad, will you eventually need to get a prestigious MBA to be a successful director/managing director in banking?
Need advice on whether or not to use an MBA consultant. Any opinions / thoughts appreciated! Situation: just turned down a promotion and quit my job because it doesn’t align with my career goals and was becoming a waste of time. Planning on spending the next 10 weeks studying for GMAT and applying for new jobs/volunteering, then applying R2 for 2021. I have a 3.9 GPA in a non-traditional major (French lit) from a “fake Ivy.” Only M7s I’m interested in are Kellogg and Sloan. (Cont.)
is Bain really so far behind mck/BCG? surely doesn't matter that much, particularly at the pre-MBA or immediately post-MBA level

Hoping to get some input on exit paths from tax. I’ve been at a small local firm for 2.5 years, got my CPA license this year, expecting promotion to senior after evaluations in December. Overall I’m pretty happy where I’m at now, the company has a good culture and no one works crazy hours. But I don’t plan to stay in public accounting for my entire career and have heard that the year after senior promotion is a good time to make a change. I’m concerned that
M&A case study Hi, I have a case study coming up for an M&A generalist manager position. Already done partner and director interviews.

Does anyone have a sense for turnover at PEs? I’m in the process with a PE to start up their analytics program. One of the issues is that I would have to move assuming I get the role. Obviously I don’t want to move if it’s a really high turnover industry.
