Thank you! Very helpful insights!

Depends on the firm.

An mba isn’t supposed to return value until a couple of years later. They weren’t hired to make slides - they were hired for their contacts and brand they bring to the firm

I studied SCM in college but I’ve been working through tech implementations on the ptp side for about 4 years now - it’s been all indirect client work though and no supply chain. How tough is it to pivot to more process and supply chain based strategy projects - do I need to get my mba. At a smaller firm now and feel like I’d have to jump to an Accenture to actually have the ability to do that kind of work (logistics and trade optimization, planning, manufacturing)
