Read that PhDs are a great entry point to MBB, and was wondering if anyone has insights on which institutions/ programs outside M7 that offer highest probability of entry?

Don’t get a PhD to get into MBB…

Yeahhhh as a PhD here, your question shows you’re woefully unprepared for a PhD… listen to Mck1 and don’t get a PhD to join MBB

Same here. I’m a PhD that joined M. You could join MBB as a PhD but please don’t do it just for MBB - 1. It’s not worth it; 2. You won’t survive a PhD program if consulting is what you had in mind from the beginning

Thanks everyone! My brother did his PhD in Oncology, and he advised against it. BUT… for more context, I’m pretty satisfied with my career track right now (probably 3-5 years from CFO in midsized enterprise). However I see my self getting bored in 5-10 years, always wanted to get further Ed, and like to set the bar high. Would MBA be a better route then? Any other thoughts?

Oh my. Those hobbies are too rich for me.
