General MBA financing question: Should I be actively leveraging my liquid investments (~$50k) to pay off tuition and expenses over the course of two years? Effectively coming out of the two-years with none of my savings or should I go full loans if the rate is low enough? Do students spend their entire non-401k savings on the program?

Should you add your credentials in your email signature? I put MBA in mine and I’m not taking it out. But I’ve heard mixed feedback about it on the internet. I feel that if my company will ignore a job application based on lack of a bachelor’s, then obviously they value education. Also, they paid for my MBA so obviously they want employees to have one.
I have ~2 YOE and plan to apply for MBA next year (2023 start). Is it worth trying to switch to MBB first and starting from scratch (leaving right before promotion at my current firm) + delaying my application in terms of overall career trajectory if I want to go into VC or startups after MBA?

Hi everybody. A XIM, Bhubaneswar MBA (Finance) graduate looking to switch from Blockchain consulting to management consulting. Work ex less than 2 years. Interview tips and opportunities (if any) will be highly appreciated!!
Joined MBB after my MBA (spent 5 years in industry prior to MBA). How much of your resume would you dedicate to your time in consulting vs pre-MBA bullets? My pre-MBA industry is the same as the one in trying to exit too if that makes a difference.
I woke up at 3 AM with Sunday scaries despite being off this week. Decided to look back at pictures/quotes I’ve taken screenshots of over the years and have determined I’ve been stagnant in life for a solid 3-4 years. Sure I passed the CPA exam, made senior, then manager, but my satisfaction with my job and life has remained low for that duration. Every year around now I start looking to leave but never do because industry seems boring. Any advice? 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️
My husband has a MBA, I only have a master degree(business/IT) . He is mad about the fact that he took on student loan for this MBA and yet he is not a manager and the MBA seems useless at this moment. So when I tell him I want to go for tier 1 MBA , which cost alot, he strongly disagree. He said I will have anxiety because I will be in debts forever, and this MBA probably will not provide me the advantage I wished for. He said I am over educated. I thought partner suppose support each other.
I get shit from my family about wanting to move to VC. They're all entrepreneurs and though they make great $$, I just don't know if that life is for me. They wanted me to get an MBA and quit by now.
So, a recruiter gave me feedback that my lack SPHR or SHRM-SCP is causing my resume to be knock out by AI and human recruiters despite my position and work history in Multinationals and being in Technology. They suggested that we put SPHR ( Lapsed). I let it lapse in 2017. What is your opinion? Plus if I were to take another certification - should I take SPHR or SHRM-SCP?

Recent M7 admit here - how easy is it to make a pivot into IB from Technology Consulting through an MBA? Are Banks open to giving interviews to ex-Consultants just because now they are in top MBA?
Came across this today. I am a woman that is often described “direct, blunt, with aggressive working style etc.” (to my face). Do you agree that men who are more assertive or have aggressive working style are perceived more openly and accepted by the society more than those who are women?
Have a final round interview in big tech for a senior analytics manager role this week. A recruiter from EY-Parthenon reached out about a digital strategy director role which I would love. Had a chat and sent my info Since it’s preliminary stages - do I tell recruiter about my final round to speed up the process or will they pass on me if I try that? Recruiter is checking to see if team thinks my profile is a fit so I don’t even have a first round

We shouldn't laugh at PwC, none of us would have done any better: Deloitte would be back at the office congratulating each other and forget about the envelope, EY would have never gotten there...
SMONDAY: the moment when Sunday stops feeling like Sunday and anxiety of Monday kicks in!!
First round interview with Slalom went well, but they want me to pay for my own travel for the next round. Is that typical? I agreed but I was kind of 😒.
Just Friday, I was so mad about a work situation and was quite upset. After 48h of binge watching , I can’t remember what I was mad about 🙂
Not sure which is worse. Attending training in BFE in Illinois and staying in a closet or being forced to share a room with a rando at training
