Do the homework: - School employment report (that actually accounts for all students): Do the jobs you want right after MBA hire from that MBA program? - LinkedIn: Do most of the people whose job you want in 10 years have MBAs from similar institutions? Hypothesis: No and no. So no.

Tough to justify. But to give context, I got a top 15 MBA and I loved my time doing it. I don’t think it’s necessary for you. But one thing non-monetarily to consider is the value of going back to school as life enrichment. Going to class and making new friends later on in your life is a blessing. But I would only consider that valuable at a top 25 school.

I am looking for some advice or opinions to apply for consulting jobs right now. I currently work at a mid-sized/regional firm, but plan move to a different city later this year. I have ~4 yr xp working on system implementations, IT policies/controls, and BPO, but my undergrad GPA wasn't the best (I did become a CPA and CISA though). Should I try to apply to big 3/big 4? Stay mid-sized? Get an MBA or Masters? Move and pray? Thanks in advanced for any comments!
