I'd just apply to all firms and go to the one with the best fit and comp. I would choose a lot of boutiques over MBB, many specialise in really interesting areas and pay more as well

All firms have good and bad work but the reality is that top firms have greater access to bigger and better opportunities. Furthermore, any firm will promise the moon and stars to get the best talent but understand that B4 and MBB will provide access and collateral that T2 can’t.

T2? Just go down the list

Yeah I’m trying to find out how the T2 tank in terms of desireability. The rankings are all over.

T2 > Big 4

So EY risk advisory service is not T2 ?

funny

Why would anyone in a top business school seek a T2 firm?

smart

I’ve met plenty of people with MBAs from HSW, M7, top public policy and STEM grad degrees at D. Despite that, it’s not about the name — I enjoyed working for my boutique as much/if not more than D and no one knew or cared about the firm. You’ll eventually grow out the names and value signaling once you find balance.

I wonder if there are boutique firms that are competitive/“desirable”—I would assume so ?

D2 just DMd you 😊

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!

Hello! I will be attending an unranked B-school in London this fall. I chose the school for a handful of reasons (family, time, program, budget) and even before I have determined that I want to become an MBB consultant post MBA. I come from an EM country, 10 years in Financial Services from brand-name global firms. Undergrad - Foreign Service. Realistically, what are my chances of getting into MBB as a consultant? Do I even have a shot at an associate consultant role?

Currently a M7 PhD student. Former Big 4 consultant and veteran. Want to go back into consulting (preferably strategy). I have an Ivy Master’s. Would a MBA be silly if this is my goal?

Thoughts on Masters in Environmental Management programs? UCSB, Yale, etc. I have a non-technical degree (Bachelor of Arts) and have been in management consulting at a Big 4 the last 5 years. I want to pivot my career to do something more meaningful - make a positive impact in the world, rather than continuing to help rich corporations get richer. Thinking that doing a Masters will help arm myself with environmental / sustainability knowledge and a network.
