M1= First year Engagement Manager.. Long term goal - Leadership at a technology company

It’s an interesting program, it’s legit. But it’s somewhat similar as an mba curriculum wise afaik and @ a 1Y commitment, I don’t see why an Emba or a 1Y mba aren’t considered as well.

...and on that point is the inference here that GSAP would sponsor non-MBA masters? (fyi this is a question from outside the US firm, well aware there could be clear messaging I don't have access to)

Looking for some MBA advice. Went to Indiana U and had mediocre GPA due to mental health struggles. Got medicated and saw a therapist and got a 4.0 my last semester. But still ended with 3.2 gpa. I am a good standardized test taker and am confident I can do well on GRE/GMAT. Given my poor undergrad GPA, am I a non-starter for an M7 MBA? Looking to improve myself as an applicant over the next year or so by seeking out leadership opps within and outside the firm. Any advice is appreciated!

I'm a first year and just received a raise, even though I haven't been at the firm for a year yet. It's a great amount, and I'm so thankful. The partners told me in person but I'm just wondering if I should ask them to put it in writing, just to confirm it and in case anything happens down the road? If I learned anything as an attorney, it's to always have everything in writing lol

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

I recently moved to Sweden to work as a consultant.

As I'm too stressed about it, I can't sleep well and focus at work...

Do all therapists use the line, “I’m not taking any new patients at this time.” When they don’t want to see someone?! I found someone who would be perfect and got that line.

Do they not want to take on someone who has insurance and would rather get the full bill rate in cash?
