Why do you need MBA if you are already a manager. Stamp of approval?

To some degree. Thinking 20 years down the line it will potentially be worth it when exiting.

Same boat and waiting to see what the climate looks like with remote learning evolving. Who knows if in 10 years MBAs at top programs will be offered fully virtually

Same age and years of experience here. I’m weighing between 2021 or 2022 matriculation. My sense it’s just enough experience for some programs, but I’d encourage you to listen into their info sessions and pose the question of typical minimum experience. Also realize there’s not nearly as many consultants in EMBA programs, so the high average YoE and age figures you see are going to be driven by people in industries and functions where leadership experience isn’t as fast-tracked as consulting

If you’re 27, get into a full time program and move to MBB. I don’t know if you’ll get the best networking experience studying with people almost 8-12 years older than you.

I’m an senior analyst in the CDP program at Accenture with 14 years of experience and an EMBA at Ross. I would say you are too young and wouldn’t fit in here, other schools maybe. Also, you are an M in strat, make SM then you wouldn’t ever need to think about an MBA ever.

Be careful what you share and whom you ask for advice. I think most people don’t really want what’s best for you unless they are happy with themselves, and most aren’t.

Anyone have tips for asking for more than you think you're worth? Because of the employment market there's a job which is about a 20K jump for me but it's been open for a year so I'm pretty sure I can get something additional out of them. Would it be appropriate to ask for 10K above the jump? Or should I just count my blessings and leverage my ability to underprice other applicants
