Hi,

Not sure what you mean by tie-ups. Consulting background is one of the most common applicant's backgrounds. The brand is well known. You have to compete however with the other candidates both with similar and different backgrounds since the business schools are looking for a certain class composition

They pay, but not for all. It is usually decided on a case by case basis, so there is no 100% guarantee

Hi,
yes, RB top-performers get MBA sponsorships. Firms do not have preferred channels, but consultant CVs are among the most desired by schools.

Hi,

Roland Berger is one of the most common companies that MBA candidates previously worked for. Based on my knowledge, Roland Berger sponsors top-performing consultants (top 25% or so) for their MBA education.

Deniz
