McK Operations Senior Analyst

Rank: Senior Monkey | 97

Looking at the McKinsey Operations Senior Analyst track, I'm a bit confused. They require 2+ years experience and prefer a master's degree. The role is 2-3 years then direct to associate.

Why would anyone with 2-4 years experience and a master's take a 3 year analyst role? Is the senior BA comp really competitive enough to attract someone who already has that kind of resume? What sort of comp are we talking about for what would effectively be a 3rd 4th or 5th year analyst? The direct to associate is nice, but why not spend the same 2 years in business school? Am I missing something?
