Oxbridge MBA


Hello everybody, I am hoping for some expert opinion to help me make my decision.

I am a European national who wants to transition into consulting (MBB preferably.)

Unfortunately I was rejected by both Insead and LBS.

Instead, Oxford and Cambridge are on the table. I have looked at LinkedIn and it seems like Cambridge has more alumni working in consulting in the UK than Oxford. Although both have a lot less than LBS. Cambridge is also doing better in the FT rankings.

So I am preferring Cambridge at this point. Are there any alternative views for Oxford? I am no longer considering any other schools.

If you were American, then Oxford has more brand equity there. I would certainly take Cambridge.

Why? I'm already connecting with Oxbridge alumni at these firms. Do you think it's not possible to get a job in MBB with an Oxbridge MBA?

Because most Oxbridge people who want to work at MBB don't.
