Has anyone here (MBB or similar hours) ever attempted to do a masters part-time? I feel like it’s out of reach for me unless I stop working or switch jobs, but would love to hear other perspectives.

Are we even allowed to? Personally think it’s doable: weekend classes and few hours of assignments during week

I was finishing one right when I started at McK (6 month overlap). Was brutal and I was junior back then with fewer responsibilities. Could never imagine doing it at my current level

Masters in what? I’ve considered taking education leave to do one. But no way could do one with my hours

One of my coworkers in IB did a coding boot camp on the weekends. Took about 9 months

I wrote my PhD thesis during my first 6 months at BCG. It was a terrible, terrible idea.

Yes had 8 month overlap with my MS (coursework only) when i started. Wasnt too bad tbh

Dude, just get a free MBA at a top skool with 24 month party 🎉 gap

Fishes, I’m one step closer to securing an exit and would like to thank you all for the support. Now, I need advice on negotiating an offer from Google StratOps, and have a couple of questions where some views (esp. from ex-MBB) would be useful: 1. What’s the typical TC bump MBB consultants are able to get when moving to FAANG StratOps / BizOps roles? 2. Does the base comp increase, remain constant, or decrease? TIA, as always!

In terms of positioning vs competitors - particularly strategy focused firms like MBB, could our leading Operational expertise can be coupled with the strategy practice to differentiate us?...

Are post-MBA exits from MBB actually as good or easy as they’re perceived to be? It seems like everyone is walking out for 15-30% (or more) TC bump, with better WLB at great companies - is it really as easy as just sliding right into places like FAANG and whatnot? Or do folks from MBB also struggle with exit opps and leveling and whatnot?
