Personally I’d lean toward waiting for promo, but this is probably a better question for a consultant

Depends. Generally, promotions are a good sign, especially if ahead of schedule or as a yardstick at firms the adcom may not know well. But the corp strat position could broaden your worldview, and might fit your story better. Can't say much more without specifics. Depends on your trajectory and why you want the MBA.
