    You can try your hands in Management consulting like McKinsey, BCG or Bain. Then jump to Tech as a PM.

      Please stop these very wrong ideas. The MBB consulting people only create noise and no real solution. They are good at politics and making up stories, but not at execution.

    Any role, no one cares about an MBA though so the same roles you'd apply for without it.

    Getting engineers bagels and coffee. And listening to them laugh at your ideas.

      I'm in JP right now and I don't like the bank culture. Too much bureaucracy and blame games

    Tech hires MBAs for Product, Program, Finance, Marketing, and Corporate Strat roles. I know for Amazon MBAs come in as L6. They only recruit at top 10-15 schools though.
