I hear a lot about Bankers & consultants going back to school for their MBA. I’m a digital marketer having worked for 5+ F500 clients. Should I try and get an MBA from a Top 20 school?

Same boat as you MP! I'm considering an MBA but would like to stay in the realm of digital marketing. I haven't heard of many people in the industry with MBAs except for a few c-suite execs?

Exactly. I feel like it could be an edge in our industry to get an MBA since few have them. In comparison, for many industries a MBA is a requirement

Depends on what you want to do and if MBA would actually be helpful for getting you there

I have no idea. Seems like most people from MBA that go into marketing go into the function in the more traditional sense (brand management) than digital, but I’m not well educated on digital marketing

That would be nice! I want my work output to be more in line with what I’m making. I’m currently managing millions of dollars per year of media spend and I’m paid 💁‍♂️

I'm 26 y o, working in GP reporting as an analyst making 65k in NYC. I have a humanities degree & didn't run the recruiting circuit in college, so I don't have traditional analyst experience. Basically, I'm worried I'm never going to make enough & will still have roommates when I'm in my thirties 😣 which is so frustrating as ppl assume I make bank once I tell them what industry I'm in. Any career suggestions on what I can do to get ahead? Should I consider an MBA? 😖

If I am not able to gain admission to Harvard Business School, but wanted a similar educational experience to become a consultant, should I attend Harvard Extension?

Didn't end up making the cut in Strategy consulting case interviews. Would really like to do strategy / S&O some day. I love using data to inform decision-making.

Wondering if it would make sense to continue consulting in implementation then try to pivot again in the future or at another level - or drop consulting & try to get a strategy job at a startup or maybe do something else at a larger company and try to pivot internally.

Background is tech + MBA. Any insight appreciated!

Has anyone made the jump from tech-specific consulting (epm, crm, erp, etc.) to more generalist consulting/strategy? I love the subject matter (finance, enterprise value) of what I do but I’m not passionate about the tech.

I also have concerns about pigeonholing myself into one technology and limiting my career prospects. Any advice?
