I think you should first consider the alternative, as in the value of a MBA in a year/2 or the value of a MBA in 5 years for your career. I would focus on where you will be in your CAREER rather than the market, since there are certain stopgaps in terms of the desired experience (ie people who worked as a manager for 1-4 years are all equal in experience if a company prefers 5+ years experience for a senior manager role). Additionally you have more control over your career than the market. If you knew there was going to be a recession in 2 years, you would have no idea how long the recession would last. It would unfeasible to wait to get a MBA for an indeterminate amount of time (5-10 years), as you may be too experienced for entry level- "post MBA" roles at that stage. I'd say go full force and get the MBA asap if you get into a target school with your current credentials and don't need more experience.

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!

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 have been researching coaching programs and really want to do it but can’t decide if I should go with a 3k program or a typical 10k program that are recommended by man like Ipec or co active. The 3k is also nice in that it’s a 4 day intensive / full days to get you the hours for ICF ACC certification. It’s with the academy of creative coaching- I haven’t heard a ton about them but the only one I can find to get your all the requirements for under $4k. Any thoughts on those options? Or Academy?
