I am in my end 20's and have a Ph.D. I am currently working at a world renowned university in the UK as a researcher. I want to change careers into something more business related. Do you think I should enroll in an MBA and then apply to consultancy firms and for positions in industry? I think if I apply for these positions now- I might not get in since I have no business experience and in some cases to old and experienced for entry level positions.
Everything is made more complicated by the fact that I am currently located in the UK but want to move to the USA.
Any advice is welcome!
