How much do MBA consultants make? Why would someone who went to M7 choose to be an MBA consultant versus the other careers afforded?

The top consultants have very profitable businesses. No generalized number makes sense to cite, but I would imagine someone who is strong at running a personal business like this could have chosen executive coach, executive recruiter, wealth management, high end real estate, etc. and felt they had an advantage in m7 recruiting. All professional services come down to hourly rate and utilization. Tops firms charge $500+ (think about the take of they only have 500 billable hours a year...). Supposedly, ~50% m7 acceptances has professional help. M7 alum and I’m considering starting a competing non-profit competing model where applicants don’t pay anything upfront, but pledge money for future applicants’ endowment. DM if interested in details.

That's an awesome idea

Recent M7 admit here, low GPA, no consultant. Stacy Blackman charges ~$315/hour, and me? Well, let’s say I’m available for any and all of your consulting needs (at a quarter of the price).

Transitioned into consulting post-MBA (1.5 years ago) and generally enjoyed the experience.

Since then I’ve learned that one of my classmates (started 2-3 months before me due to COVID) was promoted last cycle.
