I just finished my Rotman MBA after ~ 7 years of experience across several roles
- Equities Research in a Swiss bank,
- IB (boutique private placements shop in DXB)
- Healthcare Strategy Consulting (Boutique in Toronto)
I have a double major in electrical engineering and economics for my undergraduate degrees.
While I am very interested in consulting, I was attempting to grow my business ( a combination of a corporate accelerator and VC fund) alongside my MBA until very recently and completely missed on-campus recruiting. I had to shut it down due to unexpected circumstances.
Recently, I got warm introductions to the partners at Bain, BCG and Oliver Wyman in Canada and the US and am considering applying for project leader/ engagement manager positions.
I wanted to know how realistic chasing such a strategy is given my work experience and position as an MBA graduate? Should I be aiming for a Senior Consultant role instead?
