I have a question regarding non-MBA recruitments that might be useful for others too.
I am an early career professional with five years of work experience (working with large organisations including the United Nations) and a background in Law. I hold both a bachelor's and master's degree in Law from two top UK universities, and experience working with consulting firms and banks as partners through my work: without going into the details, I believe my experiences are directly relevant to advertised consulting openings and my academic qualifications meet the conventional standard.
My question, however, is how common it is for non-business graduates (or applicants without an MBA) to be recruited into MBB firms - specifically at the consultant level. I don't believe it is appropriate for me to apply for the most junior roles, given these are targeted at undergraduates or recent graduates, but equally recognise that coming in at a higher level (Consultant, across most of the firms) might be unusual/unlikely given I hold an LLM rather than an MBA.
Grateful for any thoughts or advice, I think there are likely to be a large number of early career professionals who consider the switch to strategic consulting but have little knowledge around how common this pathway is.
Thanks in advance.
