At a t2 (ATK, LEK, OW) now. If I leave to join a startup for a couple years, will the good consulting brand depreciate for MBA?

No, it’ll show you had what it takes to handle that type of work, the exit to a startup will assume you maybe found something that aligns to your specific interests or passion

Assuming A1 is right I think it will do nothing but help. Also, you'd be much more differentiated since most startup people don't go to business school, because in tech it's far from required.

I have a few questions for people in consulting roles (both external/internal).

My partner is in corporate banking, but he wants to switch to a consulting/strategy-based role. I noticed people with those jobs typically have an MBA, and also majority of the job ads in similar roles has MBA as either a requirement or preferred qualification. So:

1) does MBA actually improve someone's chance in getting those roles?
2) are there any good Canadian MBA programs you'd recommend?

Thank you all!

Between client relations, developing brand strategies, analysing data, and implementations, I feel as if I’ve built a career that can easily transfer into consulting.
