I am currently a student at Columbia Business School pursuing my MBA and am now on Winter break after completing my first semester. Pre-MBA I worked as a Booz Allen Hamilton Consultant for 3-4 years with primarily government and military clientele. However, post-MBA I want to work for a firm which specializes in commercial consulting particularly a MBB firm. Is it possible to make this transition during my time here in Columbia either through internships, networking or other avenues or will my previous experience as a government/military consultant limit me in some way? I plan on meeting with academic career advisers soon but I want to get opinions here first. Thank you.
