I recently started my Masters in International Management (CEMS) @ Esade and I am now looking for internships for Summer '17.
Given that Im pretty unexperienced when it comes to Consulting and only worked in other industries before, i have some basic questions:
Is it even possible to be accepted at MBB without having collected any consulting experience before? My prior work experience is not completely unrelated, so for example I did work for the Chamber of Commerce (Germany) and also interned abroad at the Consulate where we "consulted" companies that wanted to enter this specific foreign market. However, the tasks are probably really different compared to the ones of private consulting firms.
People told me that to get into MBB, you need to have a top notch CV with prior consulting experience and unis like Oxbridge, LSE etc. So Im wondering if it even makes sense for me to invest that much time in it.
I know some of those questions might sound a bit naive but I am really new to this whole thing so any help is definitely appreciated.
