Any thoughts on getting a degree from Harvard Extension School? I’m thinking of getting a grad degree in Management Info Systems instead of getting an MBA
26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.
I am a Learning & Development profession (Operations, Project Management), been in the industry for more than 7 years. I am looking for relevant certification/credentials to brush up my qualification. Any suggestions? Thanks so much! 🙂

Hello everyone! For everyone who attended Wharton MBA and will attend the program, how much did or will you get financial aid (excluding the Loans as I am not interested in them for now)? I read on their website about scholarships and such, but they do not seem to be a considerable amount compared to the tuition fees. Any tips or tricks to find other fundings to finance the program? Thank you!
Any current CBS MBA students willing to chat a bit about it? Would really appreciate it!!
Anyone else questioning getting an MBA in light of the pandemic and shifting sentiment on remote work? I started a job that’s fully remote and flexible. It’s in a fast moving industry and I feel like taking 2 years away can make me miss out on expected growth that will take place. 2 year grind and then working at some 9-5+ job that won’t be flexible and will likely have to go in office once things are back to normal. With current job I’m making good money and have more personal time.
Anyone have the CFF from the AICPA and willing to share their studying/exam experience? Curious about required effort, study plans, exam structure, overall opinions of the cert. Thanks!

Is there any way to retain my Delta platinum for next year? I will hit the annual spend requirement through my flights, but only 60-80% of the MQM or MQS requirement.
Why is Delta offering free messaging on flights? Hoping to upsell inflight internet? Differentiate itself in the market? Some more nefarious reason?

Considering a role at EY. Worked there before they had unlimited PTO. What is the culture around using that benefit? I understand it likely varies depending on org, role, and project. But open to some personal anecdotes around this outside people I know and liar recruiters.
I'm a Canadian applying to the Big 4 in the US and have gotten some some emails back asking how much salary I'm expecting. Does anyone know the average salary for a S2-3 in MCOL and HCOL?
Happy to have just received my promotion to senior manager after a very challenging year, backed by an even more challenging year prior. I've got my own beliefs what a senior manager does, or should do. I'm keen to hear transition challenges others have gone through when becoming a senior manager.
Currently been in DDV the past 3 years and I am stuck. I’ve had interviews and final rounds but feel like my experience is too general to get the offer. I’ve done primarily IT/Ops DD and IMO/SMO work. I’m ultimately targeting S&O / bizops, Corp strategy, or program management in tech. Any suggestions on any mid-point pivots I can make to end up in tech?
Do y'all have a list of things you want to do before 35 or 40? Anyone willing to share? I need to put my efforts towards something meaningful and looking for more ideas.

Would you tell your manager that it is very obvious while on camera with the client that they aren’t paying any attention to the conversation.
Would you leave a big 4 to go to smaller company? This is in consulting. At current company on partner track but could be 5-7 years and at smaller company ($1b rev) it would be 1-2 years. Partner comp is similar (top Partner obviously make alot more at big4). 75% raise. Lobe my current company and team. Nervous company is too small and staff may be lesser skilled. Would you move? Nothing is guaranteed of course on Partner track. Would you only leave if it's Partner role not just MD?
Does anyone know of any website that lets you filter in-house positions by those who allow remote work? I’m assuming this does not exist but wanted to see if any of y’all have any thoughts.
Do you like working on retainer or do you feel it takes away from other campaign/project opportunities? Are there more opportunities for you now than pre-COVID? *asking both the Advertising Bowl and WFH Freelancers Thanks
What is life like for internal facing “people” related roles at McKinsey? Can anyone speak to how they are treated/viewed internally? Would also be interested to learn about tuition assistance/reimbursement, upward mobility & lateral mobility to other roles. Thank you!
Thoughts on strategy& compared to McKinsey? In final stages with both. Curious if folks have worked at both - how’s culture, WLB, pay comparison, etc?
