If it’s Corp strat in an industry that you plan to stay in post mba then it makes sense. Just say that you plan to become a leader in that industry, or have a very strong and logical reason for switching. You could also spin that in Corp strat you potentially worked for an alumni of the mba program you’re applying to which inspired you to pursue a new career. There’s many ways you can spin it

No... same line of work

Depends on your goals - i.e. don’t join a company that doesn’t fit with your b-school application.

Totally new to this subject, so please pardon any ignorance. How do you recommend best making use of my savings? In my first job out of college, no debt, have about 25k saved between a standard savings account and a brokerage account. I’m able to save about 1-1.5k of my salary monthly. What’s the best way to divide my savings? Should I max out my Roth while I’m in a lower tax bracket and then prioritize 401k? What are my options, and what resources are out there for guidance and info? Thank you!

Als Partner einer mittelständischen IT Beratung interessiert mich, welche Employee Benefits für Consultants attraktiv sind.

My manager a top consulting firm just said to me: If I sleep too much (meaning over 4h per night) I get a headache so better to not sleep too much
