You do these purely for the education. No one cares about them. I actually like the concept of these because no one cares about them, so the only people that do them actually really want to learn about the topic.

BS

Would you say this is still BS for even top 5 schools? How do you view programs like Executive MPA, Executive Masters of Technology Management, or Executive Masters of computer science from the ivies if not MIT or Stanford? Seeing that these would be good for CTO, CIO or COO. Would they be competitive for partner or principle within MBB or Big 4?

I appreciate it, I see the context haha! But understanding the initial question now, I would agree with the BS as an answer. Its a money grab and for clout.

Hello fishes. I'm a MBA graduate currently working as a digital marketing professional in a mid size consulting firm with 3 years of experience.

Am I asking too much or shall I take the offer of 7.5 LPA

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB.

What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!

Do you always negotiate salary after being offered a job, even if you don’t have a competing offer? Can you use inflation as a reason? Can you say x amount will make you really excited or do you have to back up what you’re asking for with reasons? Is it true that most companies expect you to negotiate?
