It's been a challenging year for me, including a rejection from GSAP. This week, I got into my top choice MBA program - and an M7 to boot! Just goes to show that sometimes Deloitte's decisions can be misaligned to the greater world. I hope that Deloitte gives me the chance to be a good brand ambassador - but at the point, it's up to the firm if I even consider coming back :)
This question is for recruitment teams across Big 4 and other consulting companies. Where does Department of Financial Studies, University of Delhi stand in terms of your B school tier based ranking? It might be possible that the institution might not in some of the companies' list, given the alumni network is very very low (less than 1000 alumni since inception). But still it has a fairly decent CAT cutoff of 98+ and good for finance I would be happy to know. I am an MBA aspirant.
Advice? My boss (not a creative, sales roles, new to marketing) wants to move me to “associate brand manager” and to help hire and train a “real” brand manager.

I also have an MBA and had direct reports in my early career…

I'm a Canadian MBA student and have been applying to MBB. My class is focused on case interview prep but is unable to secure interviews. We were encouraged to network via LinkedIn, but MBBer's hardly have time to check their unread messages. Even if you get a response, how much influence would they have on recruitment? Case interview prep seems to be wasted effort because of this. To the MBBer's here: What methods did you use to get a foot in the door? What are your recommendations?
