Any tips/success stories on getting your firm to retroactively apply their MBA sponsorship program to your student loans? (My firm sponsors current employees. I'm a new employee with a top MBA.)

I’m not sure what their incentive is. The reimbursement program is meant to bring folks back to the firm, while investing in their development in the form of an MBA. Perhaps your firm has enough applicants through on campus recruiting and doesn’t need to introduce this kind of retroactive programs. Once they give you retroactive reimbursement, they open themselves to A LOT of other similar requests. If I were them, I wouldn’t want to set this precedent.

And they only hired you as an associate? Should have hired you as a senior with the higher salary acting as a form of reimbursement. Unless the degree isn’t relevant to your role, in which case they wouldn’t fund it / pay you more than those without it.

Besides I wouldn’t want to skip - I’d rather double dip with the promotion increases. You might be able to get promoted in back to back years or worst case 2 years if they were strongly considering you for promo from associate to manager.
