I was wondering if anybody on this forum was able to (or knows of someone who was able to) go fromManagement Consulting to a top-tier MBA program (M7 or something of the sort). I will soon be a first-year analyst at Accenture, and although I am excited to start work there, it seems the firm doesn't command much respect (at least around these parts); will my future career there hinder my ability to get into a respectable business program?
In a similar vein, has anyone experienced any success in moving from/Bain/ of the I-Banks ( or otherwise)? Is this even possible before getting an MBA (i.e. as an analyst/consultant/associate consultant, whatever the title may be), or is an MBA a pre-requisite at this point?
Lastly, how hard is it to move laterallyto the strategy group? Is this even a possibility?
