If goal is working in us, then do a us mba program. Tuck 100%

If you have US work authorization you’ll easily land a US MBB after INSEAD. If not might need to go with Tuck just for the visa/OPT

Yea no question choose Tuck. Scholarship aside, Insead for non-US MBB, T15 for US MBB. I’d say the same for US tech as well

I’m in the same boat but with Kellogg! My heart says insead but my head says Kellogg... My goal is also US MBB and I know Kellogg 2Y is the rational choice but I’m just way more excited about INSEAD. Would love to chat with her if she’s interested!

Also currently debating between Kellogg and INSEAD. Would love to hear what you decided!

For US, Tech or MBB, Tuck >>>> INSEAD

INSEAD is the best school for MBB, hands down. I’m a current student and can attest that several non-US citizen classmates received MBB US offers this year. The support and network wrt consulting recruiting is unparalleled

I’m looking to transition to MBBs but have never prepared for the case interviews. Should I start preparing for the cases first, get a fair hold of them and then reach out to current consultants, or should I flip the order? Lastly, despite being from Australia, I was thinking of enlisting the services of Sidi S Koné, the MBB coach based out of Europe. Anyone familiar with him or his services? Cheers

Which would you consider more intellectually stimulating and rewarding? MBB or PE? I have offers from McK + BCG and networking connections in PE that could pan out. Yes, I know PE comp is much higher, but I feel intellectually not as fun. On the other hand, the scale and diversity of MBB projects (defense/public sector/etc) sounds very exciting.

Can someone convince me I'm wrong? I feel I'm making a big mistake long term financially. Opinions or advice really appreciated!

Graduating with PhD in comp neuro next year. I just did a week long internship at MBB to check out consulting, which I loved but ultimately will not be accepting my offer for life considerations (my wife also works at MBB and we have young children). It was amazing getting a sense of what the work actually comprises.

Are there any similar day-long or week-long internship programs for data science? Would love to test it out for a little bit to see what I like/dislike.

I can see so many ex MBB consultants in Meesho currently. Any idea why this is and if Meesho is a good exit from consulting? I have an interview scheduled but not really sure if I should go for it or not.
