Dear community hi.

Could you, please, help me understand Roland Berger grades compared to MBB?
They have 3 grades before project manager:
1) Juniour consultant
2) Consultant
3) Seniour consultant
And then goes Project manager. My question is what's the level of Seniour Consultant vs MBB? Is it the same as post-MBA associate in McKinsey, as it's pre-PM position?

Thank you!

Hello!

I would say that Senior Consultant is what in McK is an associate, so entry-level post MBA and just before manager.

However, as you well know, you can not compare them apples-to-apples, since we are talking about MBB vs. Tier 2

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

My recommendation for this kind of questions is always a quick linkedin search. Find people that joined after an MBA and check which entry positions they took. And you can compare that with people that joined right out of university to compare with their career progression.

Senior Consultant at RB is typically the post-MBA entry position, similar to an Associate at McK.

At Roland Berger, Junior Consultant and Consultant are pre-MBA roles.

Senior Consultant is a post-MBA role. So yes, it is comparable to the "Associate" in McKinsey.
