Hi Hrag,

an established consulting brand makes definitely easier to join a top MBA; moreover, in many countries, MBB and other top brands can sponsor MBAs to top performers, while boutique consulting companies normally don’t do so. Having said that, it is possible to join a top MBA even coming from a boutique. The likelihood of such transition depends on the brand of the boutique – you should be able to get an idea looking at the alumni of the company on LinkedIn and considering how many proceed their career with an MBA.

Francesco

It is always better to start at a brand name.

From brand name it is quite typical to go to boutique. Vice-virsa is trickier

Hi,

MBAs are looking for brands. So by any comparison, an established brand will be better
