I have an offer to join out of undergrad - I was wondering what sort of exit options there are, and whether a lateral transfer to MBB would be possible later on/post-MBA?

I confirm what the other coaches are saying. Similar exit opportunities to MBB, and yes, a lateral transfer is possible.

Hi,

Very similar to any other consulting company:

  • F500 companies - general manager roles, analytics, project management
  • Tech - bizops, strategy
  • Other consulting companies (incl MBB)

Hello!

it is, but if it´s your goal, why not trying directly?

Now you know that you are good at casing and interviewing, leverage it! :)

Good luck! :)

I have already graduated, and don't really want to put off starting a proper graduate job for much longer (currently working in a large international organisation, concluded it wasn't for me). Do you think it would be worth starting at Parthenon and applying to MBB when the associate/BA opportunities application season reopens (next autumn - this time I got to final round BCG and then was rejected)? I also made this unclear in my question - I don't necessarily want to move to MBB, but it is an option I'm considering - generally more interested in what the exit options are like at Parthenon!

Hi,

Congrats for the offer! Yes, transer to MBB is possible, but if it's your current goal I recommend to spend an extra effort to try with all of them. MBA, Fortune500 and every client EY has are other common exit opportunities.

Best,

Antonello
