Does an MBA make sense for me? Making 150k tc, 25yo, wouldn't be trying to switch industries, would have to go into debt to pay for it. The only real benefits I would get is maybe an increase in salary and a network.

Deloitte 4, how did you justify the near doubling to new firm

Honesty, no it doesn’t. Unless you are looking to pivot out of consulting.

Most post-MBA consulting jobs are paying around 170k salary right now and bonus can be variable. You will most likely see $210k TC as a higher end, so if the $60k bump makes it worth it then go for it

Yeah agreed. Was trying to provide a data point for OP to go through these calcs on their own. It feels like a minor increase given current TC, so it kind of comes down to how much you value the networking aspect.

Wow good for you! I’m 25 and just got promoted to a senior 1 and will be making $73.5k 🙃 I need to get out of risk advisory

Oh wow how many years of experience did you have though? I only have 2. Also, which service line are you in/location?

Is there a path for you to get to $200K? $250K? $300K? What do peers at the post-MBA level make in your industry?

If you can get to the post-MBA level in next 2 years with the MBA / can earn as much as the post-MBA folks can earn then no it’s not worth it.

Wtf 150k at 25?! Live your life, the average age for MBA students is like 27+ so don’t stress. Save for retirement and then some, and chill. If your TC continues to grow, you may be at a post MBA salary in a couple years anyways

Ah, BCG problems

Not really. Do it if you want a break from work to party for a couple of years but otherwise you will come out ahead financially without the MBA. The opportunity cost will be ($300K I’m lost income + debt).

If you make $50K/year more than you do now when you come out of business school, it’ll take 6 years to make up the difference.

I mean I’m 26 and making 140k. I thought it would never happen to me but you just need to job hop. I went from one b4 to another and literally doubled my salary (promo included). Get some good experience and hop over to another firm, that’s how you make this kind of money

Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.
