I’ve been working in the HR space and am interested in pursuing an MBA to transition into Human Capital consulting/ Change management/ Talent technology and analytics. I’ve been seeing a few T30 schools that have a focus in those areas including Vanderbilt, Rice, BYU etc. Would it be better to pursue an MBA program highly ranked in that concentration area or to try to get into a school ranked higher overall? Thanks!

I am interested in this space as well (it’s my short term post MBA goal) and I’ve decided to try for a higher ranked program overall rather than search for a specialty. Cornell is the highest ranked MBA program I’ve found that offers a good opportunity to concentrate in that (there’s a dual degree program with masters of industrial relations) but in general, the better the school the better the consulting firms coming to recruit you

Need advice on whether or not to use an MBA consultant. Any opinions / thoughts appreciated!

Planning on spending the next 10 weeks studying for GMAT and applying for new jobs/volunteering, then applying R2 for 2021. I have a 3.9 GPA in a non-traditional major (French lit) from a “fake Ivy.” Only M7s I’m interested in are Kellogg and Sloan. (Cont.)
