    I'm getting really confused from reading up about consultancy. I see the first level is associate, but then above that is consultant where it mentions having a Masters. For firms like Boston Consultancy, do you need a Masters to move up, and do they let you study and work for it whilst your at associate level, or do you need one to get even associate level. Thanks

    entry-level is for undergraduates and non-MBA masters students.

    you don't need a master's but it will help if your undergrad school isn't strong.

    MBAs/PhDs come in at a higher level, it's not necessary a requirement because there are direct promotion tracks but a lot of pre-MBA consultants tend to go on to get one anyway.

    TL;DR Masters/Undergrad students don't have full time work experience, MBA students do. Former come in at the entry level, latter (including those with PhDs) come it at the consultant stage. Different consulting firms call their job levels different things but they all follow the same protocol.
