Post MBA Job Profiles [#permalink] New post 22 Jun 2012, 00:53
Hi. So I have a general idea of what consulting companies do and what profiles the companies offer the MBA's from top B-Schools. However, I'd like to know more, much more about this whole career profile in a typical consulting company such as McKinsey.

What kind of jobs do they offer the MBA's from top B-Schools.
What is the career profile like?
What are the functions of the job both broadly and specifically?
Designations and required year-wise experience for each designation etc.
Career graph post-MBA in a top consulting company.
What is the work environment like?
What are the networking opportunities like?
pardon my ignorance but is there anything like 'financial consulting'? Does it belong to the world of 'finance' or 'consulting/strategy'? Any examples of a few companies which employ such people? The reason I ask this is because I want to know whether my participation in the CFA program can be useful in a post-MBA job in a consulting company?

Well, pretty much just about everything there is to know. Thanks in advance.

I'd suggest doing a bit of independent research at sites like www.managementconsulted.com, www.caseinterview.com, and even www.about.com and returning with a few more focused questions. While this is a great community, nobody is going to do all the work for you.

Thanks. Maybe those links were what I was looking for. Will post again once I get some basic knowledge.
