I'm interested in management consulting post-MBA.
I love strategy and from the research I've done I think that MC would be a good fit for me. However, I don't have any experience in the industry and I have very few friends or colleagues in the field...and while this forum has been a great resource...I'm looking for some books on the subject in order to gain a deeper understanding. I'm looking for books that go into detail about the industry, starting a career in MC, strategic theory, etc.
I've downloaded samples for the following books on my Kindle, but I wanted to get some feedback or suggestions for other books before I make a purchase...
- Management Consulting: A Complete Guide to the Industry (Sugata Biswas; Daryl Twitchell)
- The Boston Consulting Group on Strategy: Classic Concepts and New Perspectives
- The Consulting Bible (Alan Weiss)
- Strategic Safari (Bruce Ahlstrand)
- The McKinsey Way/Mind (Ethan M. Rasiel)
- McKinsey's Marvin Bower: Vision, Leadership, and the Creation of Management Consulting (Elizabeth Haas Edersheim)
So if anyone has feedback on these books or others (or any resources for that matter), please share it here. I'm trying to get a better feel for the industry prior to starting BSchool and I want to make sure that it's really the place I want to go post-MBA.
