I have extensive Leadershipship experience as team lead for engagements, more than two years (but I don't know how to put in figures, its risk advisory so figures arent really important). I have lead teams consisting of people who are as senior or more senior than me because of my technical skills and experience in handling teams. The team consist of different people in every project and every project lasts about 3 months. Also, I have worked for a lot of clients with very different cultures.

I have extensive knowledge of US, UK, and Indian Labor Laws, UK Anti-Bribery and Corruption Act and Indian Laws, Acts as well as compliances for Technology and Telecom companies

I have worked with International teams on projects for Global countries in India, but I have not worked abroad yet.

I would like to move Strategic Consulting in a similar industry.

I am considering the foll:
Stanford
Insead
Tuck
Kelloggs
MIT Sloan
NYU Stern
ISB
(and may be Cranfield and Yale)
over the next three months
Are there any other college I should be considering instead?

Thanks

Hi nowwhat,

The programs you have listed would all be excellent from strategic consulting. One thing to consider is whether their is a specific company you would be interested in working for (Ex: McKinsey, BCG, etc.).

In terms of the big international firms that recruit heavily in the US, they tend to recruit at these MBA programs:

Harvard
MIT
Stanford
Kellogg
Chicago
Michigan
Wharton

Kellogg has an outrageous number of people going to McKinsey, for example. Many of these firms only recruit at select schools, or they recruit at their top six schools and then will also do some more local recruiting for local offices. It can be really difficult to land at McKinsey or BCG if you do not go to a school that they recruit at.

This is why I recommend contacting HR and just asking - do you recruit at a particular school? Where do you recruit?

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
