I set up an account while I was studying for a certification and now for some reason I can’t figure out how to “turn off” or stop. I feel silly asking but can someone help?
Any B4 to MBB experienced hires (excluding MBA recruiting) here? Would love to hear about any advice you have about applying.
Considering pursuing FRM certification. Currently in FS and don’t have a background in business/finance (studied Econ). Would FRM help bridge the subject matter knowledge gap?
Any good mock questions for the dev 1 cert?
For GRE, do schools care about your writing scores? I heard they don’t, just wanted to confirm if true and whether that differs between MBA vs non MBA
Thoughts on Accenture? How do they compare to EY and Deloitte? Have offers from all 3 but not sure which one to choose. Would ideally like to get my MBA in a few years and get into MBB. Is there a better/more prestigious choice between the 3? TIA
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Should I wait to update my LinkedIn? I joined MBB after a brief post-MBA stint at a CPG company . I was only there for 2 months and I don’t want my MBA classmates to think I jumped ship too quickly and judge. Should I wait until January to update my LinkedIn?
it’s wild how much casual racism there is in the HBS threads. maybe the reason you didn’t get in despite your top stats is that your essay pointed to the same type of low EQ that goes with complaining about how unfair it is.
Cloud Certifications: I️ use aws technologies at work but has cloud certification really helped get a promo or raise in salary. My Aws CSA associate is expiring in few months, I️ need to sit for SA pro. Is it even worth it ?
Does anyone know if M7 schools offering deferred MBA admission forbid you from applying to other MBA programs down the line if accepted? e.g. say you get accepted to Kellogg/Columbia deferred programs, but want to apply to H/W/S in 2-3 years - are there any issues with this? I’ve anecdotally heard it’s not a problem and you just give up any non-refundable fees deposited but curious to hear if someone knows
Thoughts on getting an MBA vs an MS?
PMP worth it?
New grad advice - I'm 22 and have 27,000 CAD saved up. No student loans or any debt. I want to use the $ for my MBA 2-3 years from now. Please share investment advice? First gen student and desperate to beat this inflation. Thanks so much :)
Scored 328 in Gre, 168 in quant . Confused b/w MS is Data Science or an MBA from top schools I tend to fall in love with work that I do, so no soft corner for tech or business, hence the confusion. Currently have 5YOE in life sciences consulting
If you’re at the post mba level at a T2 strategy firm, would you still need an mba to be considered for post mba roles at MBB?
Got an offer from a T2 at 1 level before the Post-MBA level. Current firm offered to match base comp with guaranteed promo to Post-MBA level. Benefits of staying would be the established network and higher rank but T2 has higher comp progression. T2 post-MBA comp would be ~50% higher in 1.5 to 2 years. Should I take the promo or leave to chase the higher potential compensation? Intend to leave consulting in 3 years. Career levels are BA > SBA > Assoc (post-MBA level) > Manager
How much weight does brand name consulting firms have on top MBA programs? For example, is it significantly better to work for MBB firms vs. big 4 vs. well known specialized boutique firms?

McKinsey associate partners in nyc make $450k total comp…$300k base and $150k bonus - accurate? Anyone know what junior partners / senior partners make?
Need opinions: lender services vs a lower MM M&A IB (deal value 60m to 200m/ebitda generally up to 25m) role. I’ve been wanting to pivot to finance for a while now but not sure if going the LMM route sets me up better than just staying in TAS and waiting for a role in ABS/private credit. Short term comp is less of a concern for me since I’m thinking of this LMM IB as a stepping stone move.
out of curiosity, has anyone here flat out told their boss that you are not satisfied with your salary? if so, did you explain why you feel undervalued/underpaid? how did your boss react?
Does anyone remember using Philosophical Chairs as a strategy in the classroom? You know, the one where we teach kids to make a claim based on the evidence they've gathered, then express it in a respectful manner, followed by hearing what the other side has to say, listening with ears open to the facts presented and being prepared to change their mind should they hear compelling evidence to do so? I certainly hope they cling to that rather than mimicking the actions of their predecessors. 🤦♀️
