Do you want to be CEO?

Then you will probably still likely need an MBA for executive director positions. At consulting or industry I would assume. Even though Comp May continue to rise to MBA level, there is a ceiling in roles/positions available without MBA.

Top tier mba provide good brand value. Not sure anything else is worth it. (I’m self-taught so I tend to underestimate the value of formal education.)

Top tier MBA will get you a large salary bump, but the tuition+opportunity cost will be the present value of your expected increase in earnings for the rest of your career.

Strategy& Ops - Pharma / Life Sciences vs. ZS Associates - Strategy Insights & Planning Consultant Coming in out of an MBA program.

Would appreciate any input

Hey fam. Appreciate your inputs on this: I used to be a software developer and currently work as a tech risk consultant (CISA, CRISC certified). Have completed a couple of cyber courses but do not have prior cyber experience. Most cyber sec job postings require prior experience in cloud, aws, devops etc. Applied to a couple of roles but no avail. A) Can I start a career in cyber security without prior experience? B) Will CISSP or relevant cyber certifications help?

26M, making $150k base at a healthcare startup doing strategy. Also about to finish a part time masters (non-MBA), and planning to find new roles after that. I took the gmat back in 2017 (710) and realize that if I don’t apply this year for an MBA I’d have to retake the test. Do you think an MBA would be helpful to advance my career at this point assuming I stay the course in healthcare? Is an executive mba in a few years a better move? Is a 710 good enough to apply to top 10 schools? TIA!

This seems to be pitched as added advantage over BCG comp as a PL. Skeptical about the claim as I assumee overall comp at any level in same geography will be similar across MBB. Is there any nuance to this?
