People say that banks pay the same in the US and abroad... but is this the same for consulting firms (MBB)?

And what about for all levels? How do business school programs look upon analysts from MBB that are housed in the US compared to ones house abroad in Asia and Europe?

Why would a b-school care if you came from a foreign office of M/B/B? Furthermore, why would they care about slight pay differentials?

Because certain offices are harder to get into...

And I'm not saying that Bschools care about pay differentials, but I was wondering for my sakes.

Starting salaries are the same in the US whether you are in New York or Dallas. In Europe, they'd be the equivalent in pounds/euros.

I'd find it hard to believe an adcom would discount your application because you come from the Barcelona McKinsey office instead of the Chicago one.

I know starting salaries are the same in the US whether you are in New York or Dallas and pretty much the same in Europe. I want to know about Asia..

Anyone know if Asia compensation is the same for US/Europe compensation for MBB?

They should all be comparable. Maybe slight differences due to FOREX or COL.

I know for a fact that MBB asia pays less for post-college positions

What do you mean by global pay for post-MBA positions?

Sometimes positions don't line up - i.e. in India, I believe most firms have a pre-associate role (Jr. Associate?) which is where hires out of college start.
