M1, I am not trying for Manager at MBB. Just want to come in at a post MBA level. Or are you saying that a MBA is not going to make a difference at this stage?

One year MBA?

Almost all the European schools focus on 1 year MBA (INSEAD, IMD, HEC etc) and have MBB on their employment reports. Not saying I will go/not go for a European MBA, but not sure if 1 year is discriminated against?

D1, yea, one year MBA

I've never seen a 1 year MBA get MBB at my 8-15 ranked school

Just apply laterally (or first at least)

Kellogg has a good 1Y program

INSEAD is a great choice for a one year MBA

Hello Ladies, so I am seeing someone like we have met for a couple of days and now we are in different time zones. I am trying to talk and have communication but he only speak when he is free. Also, he always keeps on saying that he has a lot of work (MBB) which I get it, but should you proactively try and take out time to have communication especially when you are in different time zones.

Feeling conflicted about wanting to leave my current company of a year where I feel I’m underpaid (despite praise from managers), though I love my coworkers and (sometimes) the work/clients. I know I can make a lateral jump somewhere else to make more, and I don’t want to get left behind in this hot market. I would be really sad to leave my current role, but really want/need more money. Anyone else going through this?

Moms, how do you feel about therapy? Currently pregnant and I want to be the best parent possible. I’ve done grief therapy (when my mom died, years ago), and I briefly used EAP in 2019 at my old employer during a period of immense stress. I am generally a happy and resilient person and tend to leverage my meditation practice to process negative emotions and reflect mindfully on how I can treat others better. Are there parenting-focused therapists? Am I overthinking it? I want to be a great mom ❤️
