On which point of not hearing back you give up? 2 weeks? 3 weeks? Is asking for update after a week considered being annoying? I feel uncomfortable sending those “position abc follow up” emails, it feels like I’m just begging for closure

I think it’s reasonable to send an update email after 1.5-2 weeks. If you haven’t gotten a response past 3, I personally would move on.

I think it also depends on what stage of the interview process you're in as well as size of the company. Some take a while to follow up. I wouldn't wait any longer than 10 business days to follow up even if it's just for an update.

I have a few questions for people in consulting roles (both external/internal).

My partner is in corporate banking, but he wants to switch to a consulting/strategy-based role. I noticed people with those jobs typically have an MBA, and also majority of the job ads in similar roles has MBA as either a requirement or preferred qualification. So:

1) does MBA actually improve someone's chance in getting those roles?
2) are there any good Canadian MBA programs you'd recommend?

Thank you all!
