Straight forward question - Is 45 to old to join MBB/Tier 2 consulting firms? (OW, LEK, etc.)
I'm currently senior manager (2 years) at a big 4 consulting. Joined as an experienced hire from industry in a specialism that is a high growth area e.g. digital. (I don't fit the normal consultant mold/entry route).
I'm looking for a change. I don't think I'll get into pure management consulting (as it's super competitive and I don't have much experience) but there might be opportunities specific to my digital niche/specialism which is also growth area for MBB.
I have a masters from a top 5 target school but not an MBA. I don't think at my age it is worth doing an MBA :) would an MBA help? what do you think.
Feedback and thoughts welcome and appreciated.
