Strategy& participates in the PwC MBA sponsorship program known as the consulting solutions scholars program. Strategy& typically has the greatest number of participants.

However, receiving the sponsorship typically requires multiple years of track record at the firm, demonstrated history of strong performance, and demonstration of reinvestment in the firm and the community. Part of the process is getting several recommendations from partners in your practice.

PwC does also have some tuition reimbursement programs that can help to defray the cost of an MBA, but those are much more simple and available to pretty much anyone.


Yes, we still have the program. The 2022 cycle just wrapped up recently. It was in PwC News. Not sure about a web page. Your HR business partner should have details.

At your level, no, we wouldn’t


Per my other comments, I am talking about the Consulting Scholars program, which is the firm’s MBA tuition sponsorship program. What are you talking about S&1?

Accenture is a different tier than S&. What are your career goals?


In the short term, I’d like to get an MBA to further my career in consulting. In the long term, I’d like to work in the startup or VC space.

Accenture Strategy has a scholars program which will sponsor your MBA. Not for regular consulting though. Not sure which part of Accenture you’re applying to, but assume if you are looking at S& you’d be looking at ACN strat.


Yes, I am looking only at ACN strat. Would the scholars program also apply to experienced hires?

Does Strategy& interview without an MBA? It seemed like a requirement for the positions I interviewed for. Accenture really doesn’t care about MBAs. I tried when I was a consultant there and it was a straight no.

Me and my wife moved to US in the last few years and recently had a baby. Both of us work in relatively stressful jobs. I am having conflicts with her on how to raise kids - my wife and mil don’t see daycare or nanny as viable options, and want to rely on grandparents from both sides to help with the same. They haven’t seen too many cases of children going to daycare in India in their family.
Who else has faced this issue, and any thoughts on resolving the same? This is causing a strain b/w us.

I’m very depressed, and most of it is because of my autoimmune disease. Based on my experience with my autoimmune, I don’t trust big pharma or any of the drugs they put on the market.
