Hi 🐠 - what MBA programs in GTA / Ontario do MBB, Tier 2 hire the most from?
As a Canadian, are there any advice on using mba consultants from the US vs a Canadian mba consultant? I feel like there is less experience here for mba schools but also not sure if it’s important to have someone who understands “local” context (like if a school evaluates a Canadian vs a US applicable differently). Thank you!
Is anyone studying for the CFA exam right now? (Which now takes place in Dec instead of June). I’ve totally lost my motivation and wanted my refund instead.
Really confused about my career path and looking for guidance from mentors here.
Currently an operations consultant (technology) at an LMM ($600M) PE fund. Work is typical due diligence and digital transformation/support to PortCos & firm.
Should I aim for an MBA or angle for MS? What will I get out of it? I'm enjoying the work here thus far.

Hi there! I’m an MBA graduate with well rounded experience. I’m interested and want to start a career in Strategy consulting but I’m worried about travel. I wouldn’t mind traveling once a month or every other month but I can’t travel every week. I have two gals - 6 and 8. Does strategy consulting require 80% travel like it says in some job description or will there be flexibility?

I just discovered I have vision tracking issues: my eyes don’t converge together in close-up work and they don’t track together. My brain apparently handles this by ignoring the signal from one of my eyes - and alternates throughout the day which eye signal it ignores. The treatment involves vision therapy (eye exercises). Apparently getting this fixed may help with concentration issues since my brain won’t be fighting me sitting still and reading all day. Has anyone done this? Did it help?
