I've been a long-time lurker of WSO but finally decided to join up and become part of the community here. I'm interested in management consulting, but unfortunately my academic and professional background has made it difficult to land this type of gig. Some background info:
-Graduated May 2014 with 3.8+ in a social science from fairly well-known private school (ex. USC, NYU, BC)
-2 internships during college, doing another one now (one media start up, one political consulting firm, one foreign policy-focused non-profit)
-Family is all in NYC and would like to stay in NYC where I am based.
I've been looking at a bunch of Master's Degrees in the US and UK but am curious which schools/programs you guys would recommend. I'm looking at:
LSE: International Management (the 2-year MiM is just too costly)
Imperial Msc Management
UVA Ms Commerce
Also wanted to check out NYU's MS Management offered through their engineering school. I can't find any info on it (maybe TNA has some information on it?).
I'd prefer to be in a city (a clear preference for NYC or London here) but am worried about reputation of the English schools back in NYC. It seems all schools are pretty good for breaking into MBB but still am curious what you guys think is the best course of action.
