How will my choice to pursue a postgraduate degree in social policy be construed by top consulting firms? I have done my Bachelore degree in business, then worked in investment banking and later on moved onto the social sector where I worked on policy research projects with the government for poverty eradication. I pursued my masters in social policy so as to gain more quant heavy skills in the field of policy research. However, since starting grad school, I have been reading up more and more about the social sector projects that many consulting firms undertake- pro bono or otherwise. I believe that I will benefit significantly from some years in consulting. Will my lack of MBA be considered as a drawback? I am well verse with business, valuation and accounting concepts.
