If the firm sponsors you, there is a mandatory 2 year return period. Not sure what you’re asking, unless you mean a non-consultant role to a consultant role - in that case it definitely helps

I am referring to he early access programs. For example, I am at a boutique but want to do MBB. If do the early access program the summer prior to mba, how much will this help me land a full time job / internship

Are you talking about programs you can join just prior to your MBA (pre-MBA internships, experiences - not jobs)? They can be enormously helpful for getting a post-MBA position.

They’re helpful in learning about the firm and making initial contacts for networking - which can pay off in soft ways in the fall OCR process. But it’s not like folks who didn’t participate are at a disadvantage at all!

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
