Def agree with the others on how framing your role can go along, but to offer a different opinion as someone who was in your shoes a year ago, an MBA helps to open some of the doors you want as well as gives you the time, resources, and network to figure out what you really want to do for your next step. For me, I fell into data strategy and analytics type projects from pretty much the time I started consulting. It was more foisted onto me rather than a decision, so I plan on using an MBA to take some time to understand the merits of different career paths outside of consulting.

You’re good. It’s all about framing those skills in the context of strategic work. In analytics and have interviewed with multiple FAANGS for ops roles.

Not yet but getting there

Agreed with M1. I was pigeoned holed into “implementation /IT consulting” for 3.5 years but really worked on my resume to spin the story. I’ll be starting in new firm focusing on “strategy and ops” work...let’s see how that goes, but its definitely no more implementations.

Many in my MBA program are hyper grade focused. Do grades matter that much post MBA for future job opps at all? My approach has been to balance academics with relationship building and practicing exec presence and for me, pivoting to a new industry

Didn't end up making the cut in Strategy consulting case interviews. Would really like to do strategy / S&O some day. I love using data to inform decision-making. Wondering if it would make sense to continue consulting in implementation then try to pivot again in the future or at another level - or drop consulting & try to get a strategy job at a startup or maybe do something else at a larger company and try to pivot internally. Background is tech + MBA. Any insight appreciated!
