help w short term goals

Hi everyone,
I just got into a top 10 full time MBA program. the school has significant opportunities in financial services. My long term goal is to get into corporate strategy. i’m not sure what to do in the short term to get there. is the best thing to pursue corporate finance ? or is a management consulting background the way to go to get a proper understanding or various industries prior to moving into a corporate strategy role. coming from a tech development background (currently work for a big tech firm; think microsoft, google, amazon) thanks all.
