Here’s something that helped me. Picture yourself on an island. That the skills and experience you have right now. Now envision another island that you want to get to. That’s your post-MBA career. The MBA is the bridge— what does that bridge need to give you to get you to that next island?

Guys, need some help on salary negotiation tactics. I am new to consulting but have 10 years industrial experience and a MBA. Got an offer as M2 in Data Governance based in Dallas. Base offering is $165. I know most of you would say this is fair. However, I am currently in Canada and would have to do a hell of move. I want a bigger incentive to justify the move. Again any sincere advices are appreciated!

MBB associate with undergrad degree in economics. Loved the degree, though didn’t do much with it outside of class (spent summers on internships, didn’t write a thesis). If I want to do something related to economics, how can I best leverage my current background to do so? Would MS in Econ make more sense than an mba? Maybe MS in stats or data science? Does the MBB background help in any way?

Curious on the industries thoughts on people who over sell themselves in the interview process for a senior level position and when they get the job it becomes clear they don’t actually know how do the work. If you are a supervisor what are your thoughts in this instance? How long do you give the person to “figure it out”? Currently dealing with this within our dept and it’s causing more work/frustration than the new hire is actually helping.
