I am a 23 year old about to graduate from The University of Edinburgh with an EE degree.
Right now I have an entry-level consulting offer from a London-based consulting firm (MBB+) but I have also developed an interest in Data Science. I shopped around and I found out that The University of Edinburgh offers a part-time MSc Data Science, Technology and Innovation program which can be completed over a period of up to 6 years - if I were enrolled, I would aim to finish in 3-4 years. However, I have also read about how intense and life-consuming a career in consulting can be especially in terms of work-life balance and free time.
Given this situation, would it be advisable to pursue part-time study while working as a management consultant in London?
