Take it from me, an emba - even from Ivey - will not break you into a strategy consulting role. You're ideally joining as an associate level consultant. That generally requires full time mbas and full time recruiting. The emba offers very little in the way of career switching, its more of a networking tool. In my experience, if you want to switch into consulting or capital markets, it generally requires you to go all in. I understand why you want to hedge your risk by doing part time but you will only get to do an MBA once, I suggest you don't skimp based on cost or convenience. If Harvard Business School gave me a chance to go but at double the cost of everyone else, I'd still consider it a no brainer.GeoEngg wrote: ↑Sep 15th, 2018 12:48 pmIvey has a full time program , they do offer an executive mba but I might have to wait a few years for it . US schools are a better decision for sure but again I don’t want to quit job and go for it.
The reason I am looking for management consulting is that first of all with numbers of years of experience it does pay really well. It will be too hard to make 300k a year in a tech company unless at a VP Level. Management consultants get to work on complex projects , various companies and the grooming there is really good . You learn a lot but it does have a con of work life balance.
If getting into management consulting would be hard I am okay with staying in tech but then I need to look for the right company and the right position . So far I do feel after a year at a company , the job becomes easy and I hardly learn much . And the progress is slow . I have seen people on role for attest 3-4 years . Like going from manager to VP would mean at least 10 years.
