Harvard business school will get you a good salary, but you will learn shit. You spend the money for the experience, not the education. However, MIT Sloan is far better IMO.

Harvard has the best mbb. I went to NYU and banking was Definitely the top draw. Next was MBB. A friend made partner at m and a bunch of others are assoc partners at the others. Look at career services.

Depends on what your goal after MBA is. Not the best choice if you want to break into consulting at MBB (5% or less of the class). You’ll have a decent chance at big 4 consulting. Recruiting for Investing Banking is also pretty strong there (Citi, BAML, JPM not as strong with GS/MS). Marketing/Corporate/Tech jobs are also options.

Ahhh okay okay that makes much more sense

If there is something you want to break into that you otherwise can’t without MBA then sure. If you’re just going because you don’t know what else to do then no. MBA are hella expensive and you learn jack sh*t in them even the Ivy League ones. It’s all about the connections and the recruiting offered.

I already understood it. Your MIT take is what was funny
