I have read many valuable comments posted on this forum in the past 1 year so I am now hoping to use this platform to gather advices from experienced professionals as I am seeking a career within the consulting industry. I also hope to contribute to this forum in the future, if I manage to set foot in the management consulting industry.
I will be joining the Warwick full-time MBA programme this coming September and has shortlisted the consulting industry as one of my post-MBA career options. As far as I understand, Warwick is considered as a 2nd tier business school compared to the likes of LBS and Oxbridge. However, I had done my best in all aspects of my application. In fact, I am extremely contented with gaining admission to Warwick since I met my stretch goal. May I just ask a number of questions related to the consulting career prospect upon graduating from WBS?
1) What are the examples of consulting firms that I could join after graduating from WBS, realistically? I am pragmatic with both the school's and my background so I know that it is close to impossible to join the likes of MBB, LEK or even OC&C. Hence, I hope to gather a list of consulting or professional firms with consulting division, that I could realistically apply during the course of my study.
2) How's the reputation of Warwick MBA within the consulting industry?
3) What is the average remuneration of a consultant graduated from a 2nd tier business school, who joins a 2nd tier consulting firm?
4) I am trilingual in English, Chinese Mandarin and Cantonese. Will my linguistic skill-set be of any advantage when seeking a post-MBA consultant position within the UK?
A bit about myself. I am from Hong Kong, grew up in Singapore and am currently holding UK spouse visa so I am free to work in the UK without restrictions. I graduated from a lower-end Russell Group university with 2:1 six years ago and has been working in the field of supply chain and business improvement, with 2 years of managerial experience.
Thank you all for reading and your comments will be very much appreciated.
