Hi Strategy 🐟! Does rejecting an MBB offer hurt chances of future employment? I have 3YOE and working as a Software Engineer. Decided to pick a tech company over McKinsey but my future plan is to do MBA after 2 years with 5 YOE and then join MBB.

Nope. Don’t care—we want what we can’t haveZ If you’re successful in tech I would honestly not come back for MBA and then MBB, you will pay $$$ to come back at much lower comp.

This seems like an odd path - what’s your rationale

MBB gives no deference for progression to MBA once you're in, just an fyi

Thank you for asking this - working through a similar decision now.

Do you still have the mckinsey offer? I’d probably try that out now rather than going for an MBA thinking you want consulting post mba.

That’s two major details you left out. Your choice makes sense given it’s a back office tech role. But I personally would never expect any company to hire me again after reneging on an accepted offer.

Thoughts on getting an MBA if you’re already in Product? 6 YOE, TC is ~250k (base + equity) so not sure the ROI would be significant just for comp alone. However, my goal is to be a product leader or even a GM of a business line at a software company, and the branding/network of a M7 MBA sounds like it could be useful.
