Does My background and Experience suit Consulting?CO
I am currently in an Evening MBA program, with an expected finish date of April 2011, at a good business school ranked any where from 5 to 12 depending on the survey you read. GMAT - 690
Undergrad: Electrical Engineering
Work experience: 7 years
(2002 - 2003 ): Worked as a sales Engineer for a computer service major for 1 year. Worked with various clients from IBM to Accenture.
(2003 - till now) Has worked for two utility majors as a contractor on various projects. Worked on designing algorithms for Energy trading division for one of the utility companies. Lead teams in developing applications for the Energy trading division for one of them. Good at optimizing portfolios and modeling data using various math models.
Worked on various Corporate Finance tools like SAP finance. I am highly interested in Developing algorithms and working with numbers but currently i work as team leader. Also worked in the supplier management side for one of the companies.
i have gradually moved from being a pure mathy guy to leader ship duties.
I am interested in getting into MBB consulting and i am interested in working in Asia , India or China. Does my aim seem realistic?
I know my MBA Score is low, should i write it again? My grad GPA is low and i dont plan to put it in the resume.
What other steps should i take to improve my chance for getting into a good consulting company or should i just look at another field. With my expertise in Algorithms and mathy background which field would be better
