In ops consulting what does that entail? To tell the truth, for CFA experience requirements I’ve seen people get in without any investment experience. Apparently they can convolute any job where you look at excel as “investment”. Cross this bridge when you get to it.
In 2020 I am firmly against full price zoom MBA especially if not M7

I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Thoughts?
