I’m interested in pursuing an MBA in Finance and Strategy major in a top US B-School. I have a Master’s degree in Civil Engineering and I work as an Engineer/Task Lead at a Fortune 500 Engineering Firm. I provide engineering consulting services to clients from Energy, Utilities and Infrastructure (EUI) sector. My long term goal is to be in the I-Banking/PE with focus on EUI sector. I want to be an expert in financial advisory, such as M&A and Buyouts, and underwriting equity and debt securities to fund new projects and raise capital within the above sector. I gave the CFA Level 1 exam this summer and I’m awaiting its result. While studying for the curriculum, I was really interested in the topics: Corporate Finance, Financial Statement Analysis, and Equity & Debt Valuation. These topics are at the heart of Investment Banking, which is why I want to pursue my career in this field. The concepts that I learnt in Finance along with my engineering experience and an MBA in a top B-School will definitely help launch a success career in Investment Banking in the EUI Sector.
Hence, I want to gather more information on the prospects and the future of this sector. The information I gather will definitely help me better understand the mechanics of this sector and also give me insights into the potential challenges and rigors of such a career track.
I really appreciate if anybody in the specific industry can provide some info or atleast avenues where I can make some contacts.
