Definitely helpful in corporate because you "speak business" already.

They send me to OCI all the time and I literally do not care at all. 🤷‍♀️ If you have one already, it won’t hurt you, I might chit chat with you about it to make conversation. But if you’re considering going out of your way to get one to get an edge on competition? Don’t bother. Concentrate on getting into a T6 instead.

99.9% irrelevant. It’s a fun talking point in interviews and maybe it helps you understand some finer points in corporate but it’s not going to give you a leg up.
