Deloitte Consulting vs Morningstar MDP Quant Track Internship?

Hello everyone,

Currently, a sophomore and have two offers I'm trying to decide between. One is not technical at all, management consulting at a Big4 firm vs a quantitative analyst role at a financial company (they make tools for investors?).

I interned with Deloitte freshmen year and really enjoyed consulting work. I'm majoring in data science with a math minor; however, business and general strategy is something I appreciate and am passionate about (Have my own eCommerce business). I'm not the most technically savvy person in regards to coding, but do enjoy general problem-solving. Not quite sure which to choose... Deloitte is paying approximately $15/hr more though, and I'm a broke college student.

Which would be the best for my career progression? What could I do if I left with a quantitative analyst role on my resume? On the other hand, consulting requires long hours and travel which I don't want, but the work seems more intriguing and Deloitte is a bigger name. Any input is greatly appreciated!
