For all new starts coming from MD/PhD/JD programs, we go through Business Essentials training. BCG brings in professors from top business schools to teach us corporate finance, accounting, marketing etc. I studied quite a bit and I found it immensely helpful. Others mostly focused on drinking and didn’t get much out of it. Both approaches have resulted in people being successful at BCG. Most of our work is plain old common sense and googling. So don’t sweat it!

Not Business Essentials. I’m talking about firmsconsulting.com Not everyone who gets into BCG is treated to that training anyways, only the classic side.

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
