Spoke to a friend in an exec program- you can have some opportunities networking within your class, but OCR isn’t comparable. He was looking to jump to IB at a top school and he would have had to do it purely by networking on his own. Ended up getting the post-IB spot he wanted via his classmates though, since he’s your age and EMBA can encompass some pretty senior people

32 year old who switched careers twice and now looking to jump the ladder. Because I’ve more experience but masters doesn’t count in PwC at all. Or maybe I didn’t negotiate but either ways need some input from people who have considered both.

Any idea if an MBA helps you climb higher in management? I hear a fair amount about AAPIs being underrepresented in leadership positions and was wondering if an MBA would be a good hedge.

I'll be joining Microsoft's FRP next year, and I'm trying to establish a plan for my LT goals. From reading various threads, the consistency seems to be consulting->FAANG. I've heard that mobility into a Corp Strat role is feasible - just a matter of networking. Since I'll be starting at Microsoft and Strategy is something of interest, can anyone share their experiences if they have done this or know someone who has? Wondering what role an M7 MBA may lead to as well (considering). TIA!
