There are no guarantees. You have to typically demonstrate competence. An MBA is an indicator and a means to an end but it isn’t and shouldn’t be a golden ticket.

The top 20-25 MBA’s are generally legitimate and typically the only ones worth the investment. Even top MBA’s though, it isn’t uncommon to work with M7 grads who aren’t competent technically or functionally. Often it can be the work ethic and willingness to dig in that is lacking.

MBB associate with undergrad degree in economics. Loved the degree, though didn’t do much with it outside of class (spent summers on internships, didn’t write a thesis). If I want to do something related to economics, how can I best leverage my current background to do so? Would MS in Econ make more sense than an mba? Maybe MS in stats or data science? Does the MBB background help in any way?

Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
