Hey 🐠! As a 26M with an Engineering (not Computer) degree outside the US at good but not great school, and 2YOE in IT consulting + 2.5YOE in Management consulting, would a Masters in CS/MBA at a T15 school make my profile much more atrractive to FAANG PM or SW Engineer roles in the US? Besides also having the skills, of course. Trying to plan the next steps in my career Thanks a lot!

Your best bet is going to a school where FAANG hire for those roles in US

Omg. People in big4 need to rethink with what big tech wants. They don't care about your degree. Just start coding projects, get into a tech startup, then do leetcode, then apply to FAANG. You can do more school as well as OP, but this is what I would do if I had to start over.

Product: yes. SWE: no

Thanks!

Would 2 more masters degrees at prestigious US institutions make me a better applicant? 😑😑😑

The point of the question was to understand whether the chances would be substantial or not. In other words, worth the investment or not. Thanks for stopping by though 😊
