How valuable is a PMP if you’re looking to get promoted or hired into a Project manager position?
Have been weighing up doing an MBA, as in my home country it’s not as common as I’ve experienced in the US. Does it give a real advantage for career progression long term?
Hi fellow consultants. Looking for your help on a career decision. I graduated from a top 20 mba (career switch) with 3.5 YOE with tech strategy consulting and 1 with a consulting startup. Does it make sense to join McK as an experienced hire? Honest and serious replies only please. Thanks.
I’m looking to apply for MBA schools in a year or so. And interested in possibility of doing so in Europe. Just checked the rankings and Imperial(London) is 8th just above Cambridge. Is this accurate?
If you are an auditor on rotation here on the US and planning to take US CPA exam, what is the best subject to take first? Audit?
What do MBA admissions look at besides GMAT and work experience? Do they look at undergrad at all? Aspiring to go to M7 but I feel that my stats aren’t competitive enough
I used to be so ambitious - stay till manager, go for MBA, all that. But between the pandemic and working in public accounting, now all I want is a dog, a house, and a long term partner.
Thinking of asking for an office transfer from LA to NYC, what are the pros and cons of this? I am tired of my life in LA and it’s been my dream to live in the city since college. The downside is I’d have to give up my network at my current office, and with an MBA 2 years down the line, I think I’d be able to save more in LA. Has anyone made a similar move or do you have advice? TIA!

For 🐠 with a MBA!! I am currently a FT consultant, and PT MBA student. As I complete my MBA, I am planning on my next career move. I could either stay at my current firm or jump ship.
If you are open to sharing, I would appreciate knowing your salary offered to you and firm name, once you had onboarded to said firm with an MBA.
27M, YOE 2, TC 115k - I find myself hating work and pining for school, MBA or Law, but I want to check myself. Ending my 20’s, is this urge for school just a symptom of the inevitable grieving of the passing of my youth? Anyone else in similar straights?
Just paid off $85k in student debt for UG, the thought of taking out 150k+ more in student loans for an MBA (aiming M7) is hard to justify rn, is it worth it 😫
Hey ladies - for those of you who pursued top MBAs in your early to mid 30’s;
1. Did you have kids or were you married when you did?
2. Were you in the oldest in your classes?
3. What stage were you at in your career (e.g. senior consultant, manager, etc..)
4. Do you feel like post MBA your career success changed significantly? . 5. Overall was it worth it?
Thanks so much ladies!
