Thoughts on Johnson or Stern 1-year Tech MBA? Will it be useful for management consulting recruiting at all, or only for digital/tech consulting and PM roles? I don’t want to do full 2 years (finance, extra year, age) and so I’m exploring European MBAs and 1-year ones, preferably in bigger cities like NYC.

I think the upside of these programs (speed) is also a downside. You don't get the internship, so it can be more challenging to switch function or industry. You can definitely recruit into those functions, just know that you are competing for FT roles with regular MBAs who have had an internship. Good luck!

^ this. Also the way to get exposure to another industry is through the internship. Doing a one year MBA is not really a good use of time unless you plan to stay in your same industry or company - which a part time or online MBA can accomplish

Both won't get you to consulting, you need a top 2 year US program OR a consulting European program for that.

However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!
