Please mind the naivety of the question. I need to ask if someone has a scope to secure an entry level role in Bain, Strategy&, BCG or ACN without an MBA (typically, even the eligible MBAs are from Tier 1). Consider me a non-IITian as well.

Yes you can, if you have the right skills.

Repeating the most clichéd advice, but it could work: find people in your target roles on LinkedIn, reach out to 5-10 of them, 2-4 might respond, ask for a call to learn about the skills required. If you already have the skills, ask for a referral. If you don't, take online courses (you can basically learn anything online for free or under ~2k) and ask for a referral in a couple of months. Repeat.

Thanks! This does give some hope.
To be honest, I've been looking for the answers from people linked to those firms to know if such cases are less common or extremely rare. I wanna measure how tricky this shot is going to be.

I am going to join BCG at PL level in the month of 1st week of December. Though I don't have MBA degree, but I am from IIT kgp

Hi my sharks 🦈🙂👋🏻
I received a Welcome Kit from KPMG India as my joining date is just a month away.

However, I won't be joining KPMG as I have far better offers. Hence this welcome kit has put me in a very awkward and uncomfortable position.

So when I would be declining the joining via a mail /phone call, should I tell the HR that I want to return this welcome kit as I won't be joining?

Will they take it back? I feel it is morally and ethically wrong to keep this kit knowing I won't join.
