I've always been interested in moving into management consultancy, in particular Strategy Consulting. I know this is a very difficult area to move into, particularly for a non-business graduate.
I am a Chemistry graduate, with 3 years post grad experience in pharmaceutical research.
What sort of retraining would be necessary? (Ie Should I be looking towards business related courses? I have considered doing an MBA, but it would be self funded.)
Would I have to go in as a new graduate? (It wouldn't bother me!)
Is IT Consultancy the only way forward for someone with my background?
Am I too old? (25)
I don't want to waste my time applying for jobs I have no chance of, so any input would be gratefully received!
