Currently a PM at an advertising agency but it pins me in a small corner in terms of work and skills used. Has anyone here made the jump to management consulting, could be creative be like SYPartners/Ideo or trad like BCG, after being in the ad world? Is an MBA absolutely required or would a MS in a related field work?
