Hi everyone quick question
Would the MSc Degree in Innovation & Entrepreneurship at HEC Paris help me get into MBB/Tier 2 as an experienced hire? I'm currently from Big4 general consulting.
I understand of course it's not as good as an MBA. However it's much cheaper and would allow me to study online vs going to campus (this is a big advantage to me as I don't want quit my current job /move country just to attend the campus of a target school).
I assume it meets criteria 1 for MBB/Consulting. E.g. top school (HEC Paris is in the same league as other top 10 target schools - Ox/Cam/LBS/IE/SDA/Ivy League)
However, I assume it doesn't meet criteria 2 - relevant subject (e.g. MBA or MIM/Finance). Although I do see for undergrad alot of Oxford/Ivy league graduates from subjects like history/philosophy which are completely irrelevant subjects vs. business. So I assume the school brand carries more weight than the subject. Maybe that argument is less relevant for Masters/Post grad or senior hires.
Is criteria 1 enough to get over criteria 2? Or do you need both. I would be hoping to join MBB/Tier 2 firm from Big 4 consulting as an experienced hire.
Appreciate your thoughts.
