Advice Needed - Pharmaceutical PhD wanting a Career Change

 
#1 Advice Needed - Pharmaceutical PhD wanting a Career Change
12/12/2001 00:00

KL

I graduated with a PhD in Pharm. Sciences from the top research school in the UK last year and I am doing my first job as a Researcher in Biotechnology at another famous academic laboratory. However I don't see myself getting stuck in that lab for the rest of my life and badly want a change. Management Consultancy is one area that I am considering at the moment. I would especially like to work in a more business-oriented environment, but related to the biotech/pharmaceutical area that I have been training in.

My questions are these:

1) Do I have any chance of getting into one of the Big 5 firms, considering that I have virtually no business experience?

2) Which firms would welcome people like me who have some specialist experience, but want to use that in a business context?

Thanks for any advice you could offer.
