Exit options post MBA for IT Consultant?

Exit Options

So I've finally accepted that I'm an IT consultant and not a management consultant (Big 4). I spend most of my time working on TI strategy projects and information management.

After 4 years and reasonably quick career progression - i.e. touching 60k, I'm thinking of taking an MBA so I can move into something more interesting.

What are the realistic options post MBA? MBBB? Banking? If banking, what sort of position? Any other areas that will pay as well as or better than consulting?

Any advice, most welcome.

What happens when you go for an MBA top school come out of it and still dont get a job in the banking or MBB hahahaha.

Start a business challenge yourself

Deticacaca to Exp (#2)

Very good question

I think it is possible but dependent on the following areas:

1.What industry you have been doing IT consultancy for e.g. if you’ve been running banking IT projects you will have both a wealth of knowledge about this area and probably be able to produce a good CV noting relevant experience to enter banking post MBA. However if you have been working in other areas it maybe difficult.

2.Was your experience more technical or business orientated? I am assuming the latter; if so cherry pick the projects from your Big4 days to make yourself seem more attractive to a perspective MBBB or banking employer.

3.Good academics, it’s amazing that after all your experience, firms will still look at A-levels, your degree and where you did it. Unfortunately there is not a lot you can do about this, but they will be looked at.

4.An MBA can be used for a career change but you will need to get the best GMAT score possible and also attend the best B school you can get into. The better the B school brand the more you will find MBBB and top tier banking organisations sniffing around for prospective employees.

As far as what position in banking I am not sure, perhaps if your target is front office maybe a more financially focused qualification such as CFA would be more appropriate. Anyway good luck and I hope it all works out for you.
