HEC is apparently a better option for finance than INSEAD, depends where you want to be based?

Only if you are in France, is what I heard. HEC is a French university with a business school that teaches an MBA in English. If want to do anything in France, HEC is brilliant but the network is not as international as INSEAD.

Pivoting to PE or IB from MBA is not that common these days. The only people I know landed good jobs in those sectors post MBA had relevant experience going on or networked so hard they probably could have got the job from anywhere.

Is it only the MBB that would sponsor an MBA? Anyone know of tier 2 firms paying for it? (PwC or KPMG?)

PwC strategy (S& but also Deals Strategy which is kinda separate but not really anymore) deff sponsor. Accenture Strategy also sponsor. Not sure about the others but I assume so.

Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.
