Hi everyone, I'm a medic looking to transition into a consultancy role. I'm getting ready to apply to MBB. However I also have an offer for a masters in economics at UCL with a scholarship. I have to pay a £1000 deposit to secure my place on the MSc programme.
In an ideal world I would be able to press pause on the world, go do the MSc (mostly for personal interest reasons and also to add a bit more depth and dimension to my qualifications) and then come back to start a consultancy role.
I don't believe the MSc will alter/improve my chances significantly for my job application.
My plan is to accept the MSc (which starts in October), apply for jobs in the meanwhile and hope that if I get a role (as a first level expericenced-hire, e.g. associate level at McKinsey) I can ask for my start date to be next year. Does this sound viable?
Thank you in advance :)
