I’m considering getting an MBA soon, let’s say next 2 years, but also want out of my current job (Big 4). Does it make sense to try and make the MBB jump before doing the MBA even if it will only be for a short time (1.5 years or so)?

Or you can go MBA and go MBB after B school. Then do 2 years as an associate, get promoted to EM, then jump to industry as a Director making $250K+ total comp and work 40 hours a week.

Sure, you can also try and get the MBB to sponsor your MBA

Your yearly reminder that if you’d bought the DJIA in 1929 you didn’t become profitable in real terms until 1955. It wasn’t just WW2. If you’d bought the DJIA at the beginning of 1966 you lost almost 75% to inflation over two decades and didn’t recover in real terms until 1995. You’d have made nothing between JFK’s death and Clinton’s second term. We are in a particularly weird period of “stonks only go up” but remember those 8% returns over the long run mask generation-defining risks.
