Will exit opportunities at Strategy& London > exit opportunities at MBB APAC? I understand that work-life balance would be better in London, but the MBB brand > Strategy&.

Any advice on which I should take?

Exit opportunities are signficantly better from MBB than from Strategy&. Full stop.

Even if you're looking to return to London, the MBB network is extensive/vast and world-recognized...you'll be able to leverage both the brand and the network to move to other continents post-MBB

Also, work-life balance not necessarily better in London...MBB Australia is different to MBB Singapore for example.

Hi there! It depends on your geographic preference. Opportunities from S& London will be > than exit opportunities from MBB APAC in London

But if you would like to be in APAC long term then MBB is an easy choice

Update: when I left consulting for industry last year - I was also looking to hire people for my team. I did not consider anyone outside of London even with MBB background and yes some offices in APAC are known for unhealthy lifestyles but not all. For example Dubai is OK

Hi, it depends on your geography target. In London area I would say that S& London can be better. Worldwide I would go for MBB

Best,

Hi,

It really depends on which location you want to be in after you exit. It is not so easy to exit from APAC to London (the other way round might be slightly easier if you move back from London to your home country). So if you want to stay in London afterwards, Strategy& London could be better.

Best
