MBAs come in as C2/C3s basically and I don’t think there are too many exceptions to that unless there’s other years of experience involved.

Would it be likely to be able to boomerang back as Manager? Any other opinions or tips related to MBA and the timing of doing it?

Wanting to do it mostly because of the money, as I hear MBAs earn alot more at consultant and manager level. Does it even out eventually?

So then u'd essentially recommened not doing an MBA correct? As staying would get me to C3 in the same amount of time, without opportunity cost.

MBA is more about long term potential and network building. If you’re happy with your trajectory and don’t think you’re going to miss a step within or outside of ACN because you don’t have an MBA, then yes I’d recommend not doing it.

Only if you can get into one of the top 15...otherwise, it will only be for knowledge..Admit it or not, ur B school plays are role in how recruiters/ur mAnagers perceive...

Am mba two years out of schook? Hmm...most top tier schools usually want 4 min. I know that i did not have enough experience to provide much value at 2 years out of school . You are better off waiting til 4 years

I recently got diagnosed with ADHD. I'm 31 and found this only because b school and post mba consulting job was/is much more challenging than anything I did before. What I'm confused about is that even as a teenager I could read entire books overnight. But the last two years of high school I started selectively zoning out and the problem has become worse since. I just realised it now. My doctor has suggested treating depression (I was also unaware of this) with Wellbutrin first (contd)
