Anybody in MBB done a part-time JD or MBA while working? If so, how did you balance evening classes with travel requirements?

I really don’t know how you could do evening classes when we basically work every evening unless you did one of the part time work arrangements

It depends on your level too. PL+ you typically have more flexibility on logging off for a couple hours around 6-8pm and signing back on but for below not sure. I’m typically churning things out during that time to get it to my PL+ before 8/9pm for their review.

You could maybe do exec mba on weekends. I did one (non MBB consulting), which led to an MBB offer. Travel weeks were brutal with classes on weekends. But agree with the post above - the hours don’t allow for evening classes.

While at big four you have more or less protected nights (you can ignore emails after 6) and can certainly do night classes. Not a thing at MBB, you consistently work till 8,9 or 10pm. There was an comment earlier in this bowl from a big four person asking why people at MBB can’t draw boundaries. It’s jus not happening.

M1, I honestly don’t know. Maybe people are comparing against tech folks who work 5 hours a day
