Agree with D1. Unless you get hired into a strategy service line like MD, P-EY, S&, or end up at a firm that focuses primarily on strategy work like L.E.K..


MBAs are worthless. If you're a functioning human, teach the shit to yourself. I did. I make more than those MBAs. Because I'm a smarter person for having not got one.


"Let me tell you about this thing I didn't get."


You don't really switch to strategy consulting. You just end up doing it and change your alignment. Unless your asking what schools MD and others hire from?


No MBA here either. Although, worthless might not be what I would use to describe an MBA. It depends on where you are, what you are doing, and where you want to be.


MBAs just teach you how to think in a box.


An MBA to gain knowledge isn't really worth the money since you can basically teach it to yourself. However, it is a fantastic way to network with many individuals. I would use it for the networking rather than the degree itself.


This thread is has turned into associates and ba's commenting on the degree they didn't get an offer to have paid for them.

I’m brand new to an agency and a smaller account and after about a month here I’m realizing I need more work.

I don’t want to seem like a know it all because I do have a lot left to learn but does it feel appropriate to ask for more work/another small account, etc. or should I give it more time as I’m still adjusting…
