Has anyone had their firm sponsor their MBA? Or maybe know someone who has? Worth it?

why would you get an MBA if you already have the job? I was told to only get an MBA if you needed it to pivot to another industry

I did, but it was a reimbursement (had to take loans and then got repaid after I finished). The idea now of paying out of pocket seems insane.

^PwC for the pay bump. When I leave Deloitte with sponsorship, I come back after two years at a 140k+ base (consistent with MBB and others) and tuition repaid after two years back at the firm. Pretty compelling reason if you ask me

@acn2 Totally agree. Paying out of pocket is insane. Did you have to meet certain qualifications to get it and how quickly did you get reimbursed?

@bcg op: the rules are now that everyone in Accenture strategy at certain levels who are accepted to one of the approved schools (top 10 - 15 schools in general) get into the program. Then you go to school, and get reimbursed when you complete the program (up to 100K). In return, you commit to stay for 2 years. If you leave before 24 months, it's pro-rated and you owe back the difference.

Gotta have a longer term perspective. Also, it really upped my salary trajectory

^same. Agree with PwC
