I'm an analyst at a top group in top BB, and am meeting with the head of the financial practice at MBB for an informal lunch. I think there might be some interest in my profile, and I'm seriously considering trying to lateral into consulting (I think I like strategy more than transactive experience ...

I am a rising sophomore at a lower ivy that isn't a target for mbb, currently interning with an international nonprofit.

Hi everyone! I was wondering what the prestige level of Deloitte Consulting is in Europe, more specifically in Germany.

So let's say you have an ok 3.5 GPA undergraduate but were able to earn a 3.8/3.9 GPA during your graduate study, will top consulting firms still care that much about your GPA in undergrad? Same thing, if you score mediocre on your SAT (let's say 1800 out of 2400) and then very well on your GRE/GMA...

Health analytics struck me as both a fast growing and rewarding field, so my interest peaked upon noticing that Accenture's (my future employer) Analytics sector serves the healthcar...

What fills the ??? in the career path? It seems as though upon leaving MBB most people either go into finance of some sort (PE, Hedge Funds, Asset Mgmt etc) or corporate strategy (i.e. internal 'consultants') or start-ups. However, of these, none seem to be great experience for eventually landing a ...
