Thank you, this helps.

You may a manager level depending on what your responsibilities at your current firm are. But also would say likely Consultant

The answer as always is, depends… The biggest factor here would be your specialization/stream in MBA and the relevance of your current and past experience. I think someone explained the levels at ZS in the comments above, in addition to that there are 5 main verticals: technology, operations, decision analytics, SIP, and data science (I know data science and analytics might seem same but there are nuances which help them apart). Feel free to DM me if you have more questions.

Thank you, can you help me with salary range for consultant and what I can expect with my YOE- either Chicago or NYC

160-165k
