Can I apply to MBB after immediately graduating from MBA in US?

Anonymous A asked on Jul 14, 2019 - 2 answers

Hi experts,

I recently graduated with an MBA degree from Vanderbilt last month. I have a another job lined up in the industry, starting October.

I didn't apply for MBB or any consulting firm during my MBA program. But now I am interested in applying. I understand that most of the MBBs or consulting firms in US recruit during the MBA program, and I have missed that. My 4 years pre-MBA experience was in various Fortune 500s in various roles such as finance and product management.

So, my question is:

1. Can I still apply to MBB now in US? If yes, what should be my timeline for applying, such as should I apply immediately, and any tips on applying?

2. If no, will I still have a chance in future to apply for the same in US?

3. If I can't apply in US now, should I consider middle east or some other geographic location?

Thank you!

Hi,

1. Yes. Hard to recommend the timeline, since a) if you apply in the same timeline as other MBAs - you'll be directly competing. If not - they may not consider you b) Each office has a different timeline

2. You can apply now

3. If you have a work permit and if you know local language. Some ME offices (Dubai) can make you a work permit

Best!

Yes. Either apporach them through campus recruitement if they come to your campus or apply online.
