Fellas/Ladies,

Context:
I'm from a non target school
I have experience in corporate strategy, IB, and Management Consulting
Long term I want to do PE, VC, or MBB

I've recently received offers from a global fortune 200 company doing a Corp Strategy/Dev Rotation program for 2 years. It has no clear exit ops. I believe the hope is that I'm picked up by one of the groups I rotate through.

I also received an offer from a big 4 consulting shop as a financial services strategy consultant. My understanding is that this leads to B school but not likely into my areas of interest.

What I'm looking for is advice on those already in VC, PE, or MBB about which position to take. Comp is about the same. I want big picture down the road insights here. Does either one have a leg up for B schools? Also, as I would like to avoid B school if at all possible would either of these lead directly to MBB, PE, or VC?

Thanks in advance!

The locations are pretty decent for both with lots of travel

i'd think you'd want to go big 4 and start working to lay the groundwork for VC/PE/MBB by building the right type of projects, relationships, extracurriculars, etc.
