I am currently finishing my undergraduate degree as a Biomedical engineering student in the UK, currently the start of my final year.
I have done a placement with a pharmaceutical company as a data scientist and learnt more about consulting and I am pretty much nailed on the idea of going into MBB.
I am currently in 2 minds:
1. I should go for a MiM to help strengthen my CV and financial background plus stand out from the crowd as I will graduate with 2 degrees?
Applications for MiM end in 1.5 months time and I am on track with GMAT prep/applications.
2. Should I directly apply for MBB grad roles now and forget about MiM? I have done a decent amount of case prep and would say I am 25% ready for case interviews as compared to being 100% ready if I were starting to apply during the MiM?
(3. Do both? Apply for MiM and for MBB grad jobs? Get a job and delay to after graduating MiM if i wanted or join after graduation?)
Also, how instrumental is a MiM to act as a pathway into consulting? Is it a waste? As it is quite costly too at the top European business schools…
Thanks in advance!
