My MBA was huge in transitioning into strategy consulting from accounting and financial reporting. Additionally, I realized a 50% pay increase in 3 years. You can't do that in industry.

My MBA was 100% worth it. However, it's only worth it if you go to a top 15 school.

Feel like I’ll be around more high achievers in consulting, but if in the end everyone (an exaggeration) is trying to funnel into product management, should I jump ahead of the curve?
