Current undergrad senior
Have offers from both a pretty well known life sciences firm (think Putnam, Simon-Kucher, Health Advances) as well as for a smaller, not really well known boutique that does work across sectors, plus some PE due diligence.
My question is this: I don't know if long term I want to do life sciences/healthcare long term and I think goal right now is MBA. At the same time, I don't want to pigeon hole myself into the life sciences.
Life Sciences job is slightly better pay, comparable location, more prestige, and has pretty strong MBA placement.
Boutique as I mentioned doesn't have risk of being pigeon holed in life sciences, pay slightly worse, and decent MBA placement.
If goal is MBA, is risk of being pigeon holed in life sciences worth it?
If maybe not MBA (but idk wat else it wud be at this point in my life) is the boutique worth it? Less prestige, but not purely life sciences.
