I would disqualify you if I saw you went and got 2 mba's,


Yes to get an MBB offer you need at least two MBAs, usually three. Keep studying


I think the executive mba would make even less sense. I would focus more on networking my way in than trying through unnecessary degrees


I am all for networking but somehow I have felt that MBB are averse to even considering you unless you are from a top b school. That said - anyone from mbb willing to meet over a coffee and network?


No worries - gotchya. Good luck!


You need to have three(minimum two) Partners from an office to sponsor you and thump the table to make a case for you. If you have strong industry expertise that may help Partners explain the need to recruiting. Still breaking those 2-3 Partners is a task in itself. You need to network really hard and need to have a clear value prop. around what you bring to the table. I think your best best would be to show strong industry expertise( if thats the case) and try to get hired as a practice consultant.

A lot of the top 20 MBA programs won't let you do the program if you already have an MBA

What is MBb?

McKinsey, Bain, BCG or Management (Consulting) Bulge Bracket depending on who you ask.

EY1 - I heard that too hence was looking to see what else can be done ?

PhD or specialized Masters from a top 10. I don't think you can do 2 MBAs...that seems silly

Will it make more sense if the next MBA was an executive MBA ?

I would suggest if you want to join MBB to become a SME in a strategy function that is in high demand.

OP, I think your head is in the right place but execution not so much. Instead of trying to lure MBB-er's in on FB try scanning thru LinkedIn see if you have mutual connections with anyone and start there. Not trying to rain on your parade but I went thru this exact process and interviewed with one of the MBB firms by using my contacts via LinkedIn.

^ it was polite question that caused no harm to anyone ! Not trying to lure anyone , but since this is a professional platform as well, there is no harm trying . I have been trying the LinkedIn way too. Thanks for the advice .

Or become an Olympic swimmer

If I have a list in Excel like this:
Employee | Projects Worked on
Emp1 | ABC
Emp1 | DEF
Emp1 | Red
Emp2 | Blue
Emp2 | Pink

And want to convert it to this:

Employee | Project 1 | Project 2 | Project 3
Emp1 | ABC | DEF | Red
Emp2 | Blue | Pink

How would you do it?
Basically have them in a list of projects by emp right now and want them unique with projects across columns.


Feeling really paralyzed and immobilized due to work (not sure if I articulated that well). Work is giving me so much anxiety that I’ve been procrastinating for 2 days. I’m extremely overwhelmed and feel anxious all the time. Wfh isn’t helping. Spent 10 AM - 7 PM in bed. Planning to take some meds and sleep till the morning.


All time low motivation. Joined a saturated project and have no real significant role, overweight and feeling like i have no hope in everything

How do you decide on an employment offer when one is an independent contractor the other is salary? Both have their perks. Salary is more stable while the other is based on clientele caseloads. Also the contractor position is a year contract. Thoughts?

Trying to raise funds for my brother's new business in India. My brother and father are commodity trading of minerals and healthcare products. My brother has decided to start manufacturing healthcare products. They are a small business and my brother is starting this new company as a start up under his name. He has tried raising loans from MSME to scale but it has not been successful and extremely slow process. Any insights on how to potentially raise funds in the US or even within India?
