To those who are familiar with management consulting, specifically at MBB, when you join the firm post-mba, do you generally join industries (healthcare, energy, tech etc), or are you also able to join functional groups (M&A, supply chain, etc.). I'm interested in doing M&A consulting post-MBA, and I just want to make sure that when I craft my essays, it is reasonable to say that I would like to pursue consulting in the M&A spectrum. Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

My understanding is that M/B/B are generalist firms, so you can be staff on anything initially. M has a business technology arm, that does that exclusively. And Bain has a PE arm that does work for PE, like due diligence, exclusively in Atlanta. After a few years, you can specialize in one industry/function. That is assuming post-MBA means right after your MBA, not after you worked in the industry for awhile post-MBA.
