Up until the LIBOR scandal, CEO of Barclays.

Seriously though, why would you be seen any differently than anyone else with no consulting experience post mba? The whole point is that it allows you to switch careers, right?

thanks for the response. actually i read somewhere on WSO that getting into a good MBA program is harder with no consulting experience because the school will have a harder time placing you. are you saying that with an MBA any career switch is possible, even BB ops to consulting?
