You can get a PMP while still working full time so it's hard to compare the two. What's your goal?

Will big d pay for an MBA when I already have a masters degree?

Well, I would like to do a part time MBA so I can continue working.

I'm where I want to be and I have a good set of skills and goals technically, but would like to develop my business acumen and advanced consulting skills too.

There's a lot of core consulting skills my MBA colleagues come by naturally that I struggle with. Would like to get up to speed.

Would appreciate advice for next career steps. Currently in Risk&Reg advisory and looking to switch to Strategy consulting (at PwC/Big 4). From what I've read, the transition seems unlikely because of little work overlap and the preference for top MBAs. It seems like the most realistic ways forward are 1) Get MBA first then request to transfer groups, or 2) Leave the firm for Strategy experience elsewhere and get back into Big 4 eventually. Has anyone made a similar move into Strategy?
