Have been looking at working for foundations on the banking side post grad (ie, GS, BOA, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley,etc.) or large family foundations that work on grants, community development and social impact post-MBA. I know Yale is well known for their social impact space but are there any other programs that come to mind I should explore? I was considering going an MBA + MPP because those really pair well with that kind of role.

Secured 750 (Q:49, V:42) in GMAT. Targeting to apply for EMBA in 1-2 years. 9 YOE. Current role: Senior Manager. Target universities: M7, INSEAD and LBS. Question is, for GMAT exam I just focused on Q & V part, and skipped IR & AWA part (IR: 1 & AWA: 3). Now does it make sense to reattempt with a focus on other parts and risk 750 scores, or you think it’s not needed, as for EMBA’s GMAT score is not the only deciding factor and 750 score is enough for most universities irrespective of IR & AWA.

Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy. Do I take the offer or wait for the opportunity to interview for pure strategy? My take is it’s more difficult to lateral the more senior you are in your career.

Now that covids ending I realized how much of life there is to enjoy and how badly I want to travel, but with stuff going back in person it’s just making me sad that it might be back to desk life. I kind of like just being able to work from the road whenever I choose or just randomly pick up and go across country for a week or two. I love my job and the company but travel bug is real. Any suggestions
