I have a MSc in Economics, from one of the top 12 UK Economics departments, and 2.5 years of work experience with a small applied statistics consultancy, working mainly with the European Commission. However, I just missed the 2.i in my Bachelor's degree (Economics) by 0.5%. I speak three languages and have military leadership experience. Can somebody honestly tell me whether I stand a chance of being hired by a management consultancy? Cheers

Tom - which University did you go to; if you just missed out on a 2.1 from Oxbridge then your MSc and consulting experience may offset this. If you got a 2.2 from a lesser Uni then this will be a difficult hurdle to overcome, as consultancies hire what their clients demand to have staffing their projects - the best of the best. If this is your current situation, an MBA from a leading business school would really be the best way to give yourself a fresh start in the eyes of consultancy recruiters. HTH, Antony

What if the uni was Birmingham University?? And would a PhD make up for it or still the 2.2 holders are doomed no matter what?
