Q&A: Nontarget school->Big 4 Consulting/M&A-> VP of Strategy at Series B startup.
I started at a small non-target business school, and was fortunate enough to work in both Strategy/M&A consulting at a B4 consulting firm.
I recently turned down a corporate strategy role at one of my clients to join a Startup as a Strategy/Growth VP in India (It's tough to turn down equity in ideas you believe in...).
This was definitely a non-traditional route, as most of my peers are either applying to or have already completed their first year at MBA programs.
Happy to answer any questions as you see fit.

WSO Podcast: Member @Thatyalething2019"
For the podcast I share how I broke into consulting advisory at a Big 4 straight out of undergrad from a non-target. I cover a serendipitous meeting at a party, how to NOT get fired when you're trying to transition groups within a firm plus "the virtue of not worrying."
