How do Big 4 Experienced Hire interviews differ from fresh graduate interviews? Hoping to transition from a boutique firm I joined after college to the Big 4. Interviewed with MBB during school, however, not sure what to expect as an Experienced Hire. YOE 4, Midwest LCOL. Reason: great pay and WLB, but, not challenged and little upwards trajectory.

When I interviewed at Senior level as an experienced hire, mostly informal case, technicals, fit. At M or AD level, where I'm interviewing now, mostly fit and motivation. Formal case only for Corporate Finance.

Experienced hires depending on level might have case study components in their interview while recent grads are more culture and long term retainability-oriented. At least for my team this is how it has worked in the recent past.

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA?

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

MBB - I’m a current senior graduating from a top public school, and I am debating on whether to accept an offer to a masters (non mba) to an Ivy League. One of the factors into my decision is what is the propensity that the resume gets pulled for on campus mbb recruiting, given that undergrads are probably applying as well? I have big brand internships already, and my undergrad school probably scores a 2/3 for brand name. Will recruiting teams put more emphasis on your latest or 1st degree?
