Look at who recruits and and for what type of position. I don't think S& has Fuqua as a target school for example, even for their HIA practice.

like

S&2 - While Fuqua isn't a target school for S& (yet), its a target school for almost all other major consulting firms, including MBB, PwC and Deloitte. I went to Fuqua and while I didn't pursue health sector management (HSM) certification, I can certainly say it's a very strong program. It's pretty small (< 80 spots if I'm not mistaken), and the HSM candidates are a favorite with recruiters. Wharton is the direct competitor for HSM candidates (and faculty).

S&1, what type of work do you do with HSM? I'm really interested in healthcare

A3 - they are across the board, and are working in investment banking, consulting, product management, marketing, leadership Dev programs etc. - all with a focus in healthcare / medical devices firms.

Try going to Boston and pick a program there. I don't know if Sloan has a healthcare program but lots of biotech activity around that area.

I am currently looking to break into pre sales through a SE role. I’ve gone through a few interviews but am struggling to make traction, I think due to my lack of hard technical skills.

Would love to connect with anyone they may have made a similar transition from management consulting to pre sales. I have 2 years of experience in SaaS sales but that was about 4 years ago. Thanks!
