Backup Careers in case one doesn't get into consulting?O
I was wondering what possible backup careers are possible to those that don't get into a top management consulting firm? Although I'm a senior, I'm planning on going to Michigan or USC and getting a double degree in economics and accounting, so what can I do if I don't get into McKinsey?
Obviously I can do accounting, but I'm not sure (and correct me if I'm wrong) if one can make 6 figures in accounting. I'd like to make between 120-150k, and I'm just not sure if thats possible.
So, my other question is, would it be possible to work at a big 4 accounting firm, go to a top MBA, and then move into management consulting or what? I'm pretty sure consulting is my dream job (unless accounting makes 120k), so could I at least then transition to a mid-high level firm thats not necesarily BCG or Bain, but not a terrible firm as well?
