Definitely, though coming from McKinsey I'm curious what value an MBA adds

smart

Because at SE Asia, It would take 3-4 years to become an Associate for a fresh undergrad unless you have a MBA or super distinctive. So I would say MBA can save me 1-2 year

People joining TCS at Senior Consultant designation with 12 years exp, with no MBA degree or even from with exceptional experience in niche technologies is truth these days. Existing employees with 20 years exp working on presales consulting, winning millions of dollars of projects in RFPs, delivering multi million dollar assignments are still not getting promoted and paid in peanuts Makes me wonder if companies are really enjoying so called great resignation period. What's the thought ?

I’m fortunate to get into Kellogg and Yale MBA. I’m deciding between these two schools, and I want to do consulting/Tech post-MBA. Deadline is tomorrow, so really need some advice here. Kellogg is very strong in consulting but I went to Chicago for undergrad, so going to Kellogg is not very exciting for me. I know SOM is a relatively new school but it’s hard to say no to Yale’s brand. I’m from Asia. If one day I go back to Asia, Yale brand might be more powerful than Kellogg.

Something on my mind is how I often hear my white male friends complaining about affirmative action biasing their mba eligibility, but when I point out white people have it easier than Asians they become very defensive. Funny how they can see themselves as the victim but not that they benefit from the system. Would y’all agree with the premise (Asians have it harder than white people)? If so, have you noticed this white defensiveness in your life?

Is HBS worth it for late-stage VC? Got in but not sure if I want to pay ~$200K tuition + ~$400K opportunity cost if I know the job I want next and I think it’s attainable now. Context: I spent 2 years at MBB and am finishing up my 2 years in UMM tech PE. I’m targeting growth teams at Accel, Sequoia, Bessemer, IVP, etc. I hear the argument for branding and networking, but is it worth $600K+? Also feel like the value of an MBA is decreasing, even if from HBS.
