Probably not too hard now, given the high demand. Even in normal times you’d probably get a look. Only applies for associate/consultant level positions though. You’ll die from adjusting to the pace/intensity if you come in manager level or above, so not happening here. If you have other consulting experience it is possible. If your a super VP-senior exec level it’s also possible to come in as partner level…mixed results here.

yes

I’ve never seen it, but I am sure it isn’t impossible. Usually post MBA.

What about without MBA?

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
