What is the toughest challenge for a Consultant to transition from big 4 to MBB consulting? I was fortunate enough to get an MBB offer as an experienced Consultant and want to make sure I hit the ground running. Thanks! Bain & Company McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group
Will getting 2 years of experience as a strategy & ops manager in financial services pigeon hole me in that industry. Not in love with the space but think it could compliment 2 years at MBB quite well. Not too eager to stay in consulting and get promoted
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

I got an offer from a boutique outside of my home country and they are ready to process visa. But I am interviewing with MBB and they only have final round interview slot early next month even after I tell them I have an offer at hand. What should I do? Theoretically I can sign with the boutique and then break it but I don’t want them get me into the visa process. Advice needed please.McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
