Deciding between Insead and oxford mba . Constantly hearing that INSEAD is a tier 1 school where Oxford is second tier . After speaking with alumni , seems like Insead alum are the most passionate too . Living in Singapore and France is a huge plus . Oxford has prestige and is more than just a business school. Their social / ethical take on mba seems to resonate with me a lot more . The alumni seem to choose career paths similar to fields of what I want to do .

Salary in interview. I was asked about my salary in an interview at MBB. Say I was currently receiving 70k fixed + 22k bonus. I told them "my salary is 100K including bonus". Can this little round off hurt later? The interviewer was basically asking me how much I am expecting and I told him industry standards. Kept pursuing it. In end he said just give me sense of your current salary and so I rounded off.
