Thoughts on applying to school to pursue a second bachelors in comp sci for a career switch into tech (non bizops/strategy role) as a newly promoted Senior Associate (2 YOE) in Consulting with a business degree? Overall goal is to get into Product Management and the second degree would be 2 years in length. Please convince me I’m not crazy! 👀 not very happy with building slides/models all day and don’t see myself in my manager’s shoes!

I mean at this point why not just apply for a Masters and pivot? Unless I read that wrong and you already have two bachelors.

Yeah, as EY said, why go for an MBA? There are many more valuable programs to pursue including many strong CS and Data Science programs that don’t require previous technical backgrounds. Berkeley BIDS is one that comes to mind.

I would say save yourself the money and get a certification in POPM instead, go back for an online masters and go from there. If you don’t want the master’s then find a computer science or tech-related specialization on Coursera. I did something similar and I don’t regret it.

What would be a reasonable total comp to exit into medtech or health tech corporate strategy role at senior Manager level? The next level above is Director. Credential is MBA and PhD and 3 YOE post MBA. I’m assuming there is a discount compared to Pharma but is that true? I am thinking base + expected bonus should be at least $210k. Is this too high or low?. Thank you for your insights!
