How can I get into an entry level healthcare consulting job? I just got my undergrad in a complete different field but have been working in the staffing industry for almost two years now. I am currently applying at schools to continue my education and obtain a masters degree, looking at MBAs in Healthcare or Masters in Management. Would this be a good way to get a potential role in consulting? I would appreciate any advise this bowl can give me, Thanks!

Make sure to go to a target school and not just some random MBA that has no campus recruiting for the firms you want to work at

I am in the UK (London). Some of my colleagues pivoted from totally unrelated undergrads and/or random experience to life sciences consulting after a masters at LSE, Imperial, etc. Don’t know if lesser known schools have such exit opportunities. But based on my observation, such change is possible

Yes, getting a master's is a great way to get into the field! Competitive MBA programs will have you set, but some MHA/MPH programs are reputable for healthcare-specific firms. Also, definitely do your research on firms to know for sure if the work seems interesting to you! There are many different types of consulting services in healthcare - I think a first good step is to think if you want to go more into strategy or operations! Feel free to DM me if you want to talk more or have specific questions.

Thank I didn’t think of the type of consulting I would like to do. I have looked at MHAs and MPHs but wasn’t sure if they are worth it or not. I will send you message now, thanks again!

Why would you make people waste so much time on your stupid assessments before asking expected salary range?!

Hello Folks,

Could anyone help with referral in ESG domain? More so around the audit and reprting side of it.

Quick background - i am a chartered accountant with 6+ yoe in audit, accounting, reporting and transfer pricing.

I am a Data Scientist but I am doing Tableau work right now since the Tableau Developer left. They are working on getting a new person. However, I have to work on dashboards for now. My current project's dashboards are more complicated than what I worked on before. Do you think it is worth it to sit for the Tableau Certified Associate exam? Or at least study for it. I have some knowledge gaps even though I already have the Desktop Specialist certificate.
