.Are there even MBA-required jobs? Aren't a vast majority of b-school students people whose companies said "go get an MBA so we can justify your promotion to our shareholders, don't worry, we'll pay for it"
Do people go K-MBA planning on landing big-corp? I don't think law school and business school are comparable
It is comparable for job prospects. I don't care what experience you have, if you go to Emory Business School you will not have the same opportunities as someone that goes to an M7. Same goes for law school, the Wake Forest student will not have the same opportunities as someone from the T-14.
Also, yes there are B school required jobs. Top consulting firms (Consultant roles) and investment banking firms (Associate roles) require a MBA.
I think the issue with law students being unemployed is that a lot of the students go K-JD. If they would have worked for two years as say a financial analyst, they would be more marketable at OCI and also be able to rely on their past experience to at least land a 50K a year job while looking for law jobs.
