Oxford. Tbh they’re both reasonably equal on other things but at least the oxford brand is a game changer

Oxford. I am an alum, so naturally biased. But, if nothing else, they have the global brand.

Oxford

To all: why??

Neither. INSEAD

If you're looking for exit opps outside of Europe no one will have ever heard of IMD

Great point. INSEAD is the single largest contributor of McK MBA hires in the world, and MBB inclusively hire about 3/4 of each graduating class. If you want to stay in consulting, INSEAD should be your first choice.

Oxford - as it has been said, the brand name is worrh way more than IMD

Feedback was that I need to improve business judgement for case interviews.

Looking for advice … it often seems I am one click below the level I should be at given I joined consulting in my early 30s post MBA. Joined my current firm again as principal and often seems I can operate at partner level and definitely deliver and sell at one (10-15M year). Part of it has been pushing for it a lot and that I believe is not getting me the right outcomes. Any advice for partners that have been here? Just hit 40 as well.
