Best luggage for travel? Just got consulting job at MBB and looking to buy some new stuff.

I feel like I should leave my boutique strategy consulting firm, but no one will match my pay. 4 yoe. I feel like an MBA should be next, but then I would have to take a $100k pay cut at mbb or any company after paying $$$ in tuition and $$$$$ in lost income. Has anyone ever dealt with golden handcuffs?

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
