I've found there's no degree that works best. I know MBAs from Harvard, UPenn, etc who are morons; I know people with only a bachelors who seem to be geniuses. This is a job that balances common sense, people skills, and business acumen on an ever teetering tri-point scale. Id say it's like walking a tight rope, but that's (ideally) one dimensional.

Awesome. Thanks!

Without a doubt. Friend with Yale law JD hired by McK and had a great experience.

Would you apply for jobs that requires more work experience than you currently have? Or have you done it? Did you make it and how? ( I have close to three years work experience and at an MBA program while some of the mba jobs requires AT LEAST 4-6 years work experience. I didn’t go ahead because some companies have 1-2 years freeze period once you fail, even the resume screen part) How would you approach it?
