All Things MBB

Post-MBA, how difficult is it to transition from strategy at a big 4 firm to MBB? What types of things would you need to be able to show?

Need to show top performance (fast progression) at your firm and network heavily. No specific skills really needed since any MBB will re-teach you everything. Don't emphasize too much that you already do "strategy". We likely mean different things when we're saying that and it will not rub off well.

It’s doable. We have a pipeline for post mba experiences hires. The downside is you would likely come in as a C1.

C1 would be fine, just wanted to ensure that the door is open. Thanks!

Looking for a more “technically oriented” graduate masters program, but most I’ve come across require some sort of engineering/comp sci undergrad degree (which I don’t have). Does anyone have any recommendations for good analytics/information systems/data science, etc programs that don’t require such background? Just doing an initial search. TIA!
