I guess my question is less about the impact of the prestige of the particular Bschool, and more about how MBA recruiting actually works and the weight it places on pre-MBA experience. Coming from MBB I have great exit opportunities compared to non-MBB consultants, and so I’m wondering if this advantage gets “diluted” by business school

This quite frankly makes no sense. Why would the value of your employer depreciate depending on the perceived prestige of your business school? Those are separate issues (if you can really call them issues in the true sense of the word).

like

You’re conflating relative prestige with the actual recruiting process. Jobs have various requirements and weights on educational experience as well as work experience (e.g., MBA required or highly preferred). In such cases, you have to weigh your perception of prestige dilution (which I would argue is far too strong) with the additional value of the network and credential of the MBA degree for the careers that you decide to pursue. Don’t let having the MBB credential overly cloud your thinking. It’s obviously very impressive, especially coming out of undergrad, but your competitors won’t simply roll over for your having it. At the risk of sounding cliched, you have to keep improving and developing, and if a non-H/S M7 MBA is the best path to doing so, then you should attend.

For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE). I would assume to leave at manager level would be more ideal as when you come back to the workforce you should at the very least be ready to come in at manager or above at your next job? Thoughts?

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
