I was wondering if it would be possible (or in fact beneficial) to pursue an MBA (with MBB sponsorship) 1 year after being promoted to an associate (i.e. expert solution associate). Or even possibly after being promoted to an EM (i.e. Expert). Would such a move make sense from a self-development and CV-boosting point of view?
Also, does an MBA improve the chances of being elected to a Partner (when that time comes around)? Is the fact that having an MBA taken into consideration?
Finally, assuming that I choose to enroll in an MBA program that is in the same country as my base office, is it possible to remain on the working visa which is sponsored by the MBB, or do I need to transfer to a student visa during my time at the MBA program? (This is actually a deal breaker for me)
