Have been looking at working for foundations on the banking side post grad (ie, GS, BOA, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley,etc.) or large family foundations that work on grants, community development and social impact post-MBA. I know Yale is well known for their social impact space but are there any other programs that come to mind I should explore? I was considering going an MBA + MPP because those really pair well with that kind of role.

I have heard that McKinsey allows some BAs to move quickly to EM (although sounds like it’s fairly rare to be in 3 years?). When that does happen, do they manage post MBA associates, or just BAs?
Cross post: Anyone get their MBA from Kellogg and care to connect and share their experience? I want to exit to consumer goods or tech. Currently have 3 years experience at EY and 4 previously in consumer goods. Thinking of going for MBA then going back to industry
Any finance transformation consultants had luck exiting to Tech/Fin-Tech? Have not had much success so far and I assume it's because I don't have the typical consulting experience posted here (strategy or implementation consulting). Been looking at CorpDev, Strategic Finance, and Product Finance roles. 7 YOE, no MBA.
To the folks who pivoted from tech consulting pre-MBA to IB/PE post- graduation, how has your experience been? What would have been helpful for you to have known prior to making the switch?
Hey guys - I work at FAANG right now, and planned on an mba in the next 2-3 years. Have an opportunity with McKinsey as a consultant. Always wanted to work there, but only for a short stint - feel like it will 1) boost my overall profile for an mba application 2) give me the experience I’m looking for before mba because post mba I’d like to focus on my own venture. Also folks at McKinsey - would love to hear what conditions there are for getting an mba sponsored at the firm. Thanks!

Any Accenture Interactive account folks on what makes a successful Account Lead at AI. I've been approached for a "Digital Transformation Executive" role, but my knowledge of digital transformation/CX/BX is cursory at best. I crashed and burned pretty hard at Publicis Sapient (now back industry-side) and am wary of going back into the digital transformation space. However, the AI folks insist my general business background, MBA and brand strategy experience will translate to success.
If I wanted to begin the MBA prep/application process now, would I be looking at the fall 2022 admissions rounds? I assume I’ve missed the boat on the current year? Also has anyone done a gap year/volunteered after securing a slot in an MBA program? Thanks.

Anyone here take out massive loans for your MBA — and are you financially ruined by it? (Committing to a school tonight and looking for a few success stories to bring my blood pressure down a few notches)
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Hello Ladies! I’ve had a strong desire these past few years to switch from the Aerospace and Defense industry over to consulting. I have finally entered the market to search for a new role, and I had a question about benefits. As a newlywed, I would like to start a family soon and wonder which consulting organizations offered great benefits in terms of maternity leave and health coverage?
