Too late. Can I get a referral for SO’s?

Yes. Fortunately my SO has a local job. If you’re single and traveling, please don’t get a dog. I witnessed my colleague’s dog getting severely depressed since she was left at a boarding place every single week.

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
