I’m still very new to this so bear with me. I have 1 year of experience at EY as a staff consultant but am leaning towards getting an MBA. Would I have to leave consulting to go full time MBA (no working) or could I be a full time student while working? And if I have to leave would I basically resume from the position I was at or would jump ahead some?Deloitte PwC Accenture KPMG

Are MBAs even worth it? I regret getting mine because I didn’t get a boost from it at work. I suppose every employer is different but it didn’t help me one bit.

I’ve thought about it. What other opportunities would you pursue?

If you are planning for a full time MBA, you should not do a full time job (part time job is ok). Post MBA, generally you will lend up with one designation up (but depends on organisation to organisation).

like

MBA only useful if you use it strategically. Primarily to pivot to a new job / role (but this should be identified before you even apply) that would have been unattainable without going back to school. Or else the $ amount spent and the lost earnings from a full time do not make it very attractive.

People will comment M7 or bust because those schools have the highest ROI with easily obtainable exits into tech, high finance, or MBB.

like

No. If you want to keep working, then do a part time MBA. But you will get crushed, very quickly if you work full time and try and do a full time MBA. I did a part time MBA and many nights I was up until 1-2am trying to get assignments done.

KPMG2 not really though, I can write down a number for my pre-MBA salary and then write down a number for my post-MBA salary and quantify the value.

What I can't quantify, but can qualify, is the people I met and experiences I had that I wouldn't have otherwise if I'd kept working those two years. Those specific value-add events don't provide value to anybody else, but they do to me.

Despite all of this, she’s pulled into “the room where it happens” more often because she’s officially more senior to me.. cont.
