Few clarifying questions:

1) what did you study UG? 3.7 science / eng is different from 3.7 comms.

2) curious to hear more about your global exp - was this a secondment? externship with a NGO? probing as many candidates spend 1-2 weeks abroad on a case and then try to really sell it ... but the pitch often falls flat.

I come from a very low socioeconomic background (Asian, Male, Straight), came to the states at age 14. Since graduating from top 25 UG school in Econ, I've been supporting my parents. My dad lost his job since 2016.
With that said, I really want to pivot to IB. But I just don't see myself being able to afford FT M7 MBA and I will need to work to send money to my parents.
So I'm looking at PT Booth. Is PT MBA really unrecognized and looked down upon?
I can do M7 FT, but prefer not to. GMAT 760.

Are there any similar day-long or week-long internship programs for data science? Would love to test it out for a little bit to see what I like/dislike.

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.
