I'm currently a tech consultant at Deloitte, and been with the firm almost a year now. I currently work on big data and machine learning engagements in TMT due to my background, and I quickly discovered that I'm very interested in M&A due diligence in TMT. It is challenging to get on a project like that within my firm, and I have been in the midst of getting together my own small engagement just to get the exposure. I planned on applying for MBA programs next year and switching to IB to get this exposure, but recently, a recruiter from LEK reached out and said they were interested in me for a strategy Associate position. From what I understand, strategy and M&A due diligence is the bread and butter of LEK, which is exactly what I'm looking for. In the next few years, will my exit opportunities be about the same regardless if I stay or leave? Or will the exposure to gaining valuation and modeling skills open more doors?
