Not too sure

I'm a student who is persuing a career in advertising & communications. I really like the commincations feild so far, but financially I'd really like to go into consulting first, I'm almost absolulty sure I'd be good at it. Is it possible to get a degree in advertising and still get recuited by a consulting company? Do I need to get an MBA or go to a business school? I really need some advise.

The consultant who knows ?

A degree that will create a foundation for your consultancy focus.

Make sure the content is international and that you are learning a 3rd european language when time permits.

What is a good consultant, it's not just a title, you will have to offer real advice beneficial to your clients based on real experiences in that field for that particular project problem.

Then there's "call me a consultant" jobs, because you will like the job title and will get paid low and have no real experience to offer as a graduate. Much like recruitment consultants (pure sales) or Floor manager ( s/he who sweeps the floor ).

Best thing is to apply early as an honours graduate and investigate as many internships as possible, (international experience is always good. After 3 years of solid experience, do an MBA at which time you will have more finances to pay for it and you will get more out of it !

ps Unfortunately client contact roles require also somebody who looks like they are from " Friends" or "Dallas" if you're older.

If your a techie consultant, it's less as a requirement. As I've worked with a few with shocking dress sense.

In a "lateral thinking way" these subliminal suggestions will help you. -Good luck with the next steps !
