Both are strong but Kellogg probably has the edge. Also it depends which office you're targeting. If your goal is the NYC office, CBS is probably the move.

CBS is a Finance school and Kellogg is a Consulting school. But it depends what location you want. They both can help you get into MBB

Kellogg

Same. You won't get fewer opps at either school. More about which office you want to be in to make your networking easier

CBS. You will have lot of options afterwards.

FWIW, Kellogg has more cred in most fields other than finance. Always thought of CBS more on par with a Tuck, rather than M7 - in the end it’s branding not actual quality of the experience, but worth thinking about.

Hey 🐠, I’m trying to understand if I need to be looking for lateral exit opportunities from a compensation perspective. I’m a Manager in the M&A IT practice, 12 YOE (7 in Tech and 5 in Consulting). I am happy with the work I do and the people I work with are tolerable. New base salary is $178K starting this month. Asking because I’ve heard that people should keep jumping from one company to another in Consulting to have a competitive comp. Basically guys, is my compensation competitive?

I enjoy the transactional work even though I have less experience in it, and it would be a great resume builder. I am not great with risk taking/change. Wwyd?
