Asset management is hard to get post-mba unless you're at a M7, even there not easy.

Define lucrative

Quite a few corporate roles can get there. When I worked in FP&A the VP’s and SVP’s (just below c-suite) were all making $3-400k base, bonus took them well over $500k.

Posted in Big 4 bowl but reposting here: Looking to move into a general Consulting Staff/Business Transformation/Strategy position mid-late 2022. Was eyeing a Summer/Fall 2022 Business Transformation Staff position at EY in particular, but it has dropped off. Any idea of when positions like that will typically open up across most firms? Want to get in early, open to any firm. I do not have an MBA, but I am client facing and work in commercial markets currently. TYIA!

Recently started at Bain (post MBA), but was given opportunity to join a first time fund ($200m AUM). Pay is 50% more. Ideally would like to stay for ~2 years at Bain before making a switch like this to buy-side. How likely are opportunities like this to come down the road? Don’t want to jump the gun and forego having a Bain credential. Help!

MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.

Thinking of applying to MBA next fall after two years of consulting post-undergrad. 760 GMAT, 3.3UGPA, with a Master's Degree.
