Consulting and good WLB doesn't really go together. You can check out CRA or ZS for less travel and less cut-throat work. I personally would aim for MBB, work hard for two years then exit to industry for better WLB

Is a Part-Time MBA worth the time and money if it’s only from a top 20-25 FT program?

Top 20-25 since I need to be locals for my job and that’s the best program in my T2 city. I can’t move since I have a mortgage and a decent paying job here. It’s hard for me to justify $120k investment and 2-3 years for a chance at long term career acceleration. Will this pay off long term? Thanks?

I got into Columbia’s deferred MBA program!!! Super amped but now that I’m in... nervous about the price tag. I know there’s GSAP but I know it’s kinda dying and I feel like a huge reason I want to get an mba is to pivot industry’s in a few years... going to be saving aggressively but no way I can do it without taking out loans. Would love to hear people’s thoughts on cost vs value
