Thoughts on a PT MBA (Kellogg, HAAS, Booth) vs. T14 full time MBA. I am a consultant in S& that makes over $200k+ a year right now and will make $300+ in 2 years or so (will be SM by then). If I left PwC for a full time MBA, I feel like I am setting myself back (e.g., full time MBA, maybe switch to MBB associate, etc. - which is an upgrade on prestige and a downgrade on comp.) Primary reason for the MBA is to get into a CXO role of a PE backed company someday.
