29 is not too old, but I wouldn't recommend starting after 30; at that point, your experience should be sufficient to get you the job you seek, and you can just wait a couple more years and do an EMBA if you want

Don't do it

Yeah they start to push older consultants into PT and executive programs because older consultants are more likely to take a pay cut and leave to industry, lowering the ranking metrics of the school.
