Anyone else (who is NOT in big consulting/tech/banking), run the numbers of when they'll be out of MBA debt and realize it was not worth it? If you had an income of 120k, it would be quite difficult to save for a house/retirement/etc while paying down debt for 10 years.

Target exit salary for MBA is 160+ and with internship, bonuses, and tuition reimbursement, this growth in income is well worth it. You can also save tax free before going, I think. I didn’t use it, but there’s been talk of 529 for grad school

Does mba help in pivoting to consulting? I want to learn more about business + do strategy work and I’m not sure if I’m getting that in tech.

Feedback was that I need to improve business judgement for case interviews.

Looking for advice … it often seems I am one click below the level I should be at given I joined consulting in my early 30s post MBA. Joined my current firm again as principal and often seems I can operate at partner level and definitely deliver and sell at one (10-15M year). Part of it has been pushing for it a lot and that I believe is not getting me the right outcomes. Any advice for partners that have been here? Just hit 40 as well.

How do top consultants create really good visuals or dashboards without being exceptionally talented with data cleaning, manipulation, and visualization software such as power BI or tableau.
