I am undergraduate of Electronics and Computer Engineering with an ambition to work in a consulting enviroment doing some analysis and taking business decisions.

However my interest span different fields like Telecommunications and networking,Multimedia(internet applications),Financial analysis e.t.c.The question is where do I place my feet...any convergence and what the required and neccessary skills to fit into a consulting firm?

In general terms, the answer is yes, there already has been.

Your question is difficult to understand though. If you mean technology convergence in the areas you mention then there are many specific examples of converged technology products not only in the business world, but already in retailers as packaged products. You are probably aware of these, if not visit a shopping mall.

Technology also converges with business, and there are specific examples of this available (on-line websites of financial companies with analytical charts). You might find the smaller print in newspapers gives you company names and you can search them out. Get an idea of companies that are in your interests area, the one's that do things you didn't know existed, and the one's you wish to avoid. Stop short of paying expensive sign-up costs though, although your university library might give you more help in this as costs are lower for research.

When businesses converge at the financial level they realise synergies, through financial transactions. It's best to study this in a degree and then get experienced in it, or go straight for the experience, with a mentor.

You have some good IT knowledge/certification and you might think about getting a job in an IT consultancy/other consultancy before taking further studies, perhaps in a support role (Cap Gemini, Sapient, Atos Origin etc.) might hire Cisco people who want to work in other areas as well. From there you might hope to get sponsored for an MBA after you get experience. I personally think you should not do an MBA without experience. You will find getting into top companies and courses very competitive though. A masters might be an idea if you cannot find the job you want. Think about doing projects in areas like e-commerce in an IT course so you can talk about your interest in interviews. If you get on a decent MBA course later on you would also probably do more IT strategy/architecture/development studies. You should not rule out getting sponsored by companies after starting the course as long as you do not mind taking the risk that this won't happen.

Careers offices in good universities, writing many, many courteous emails in search of a job or even an undergraduate internship (which may not pay much) are also things you should consider. Good luck - I'd probably look to exchange my time & IT skills for a salary & business/financial experience if I was you. I'm sorry that I'm not searching to be a mentor.
