I have a BS/MS in Water Resources Engineering, with a 4.0 GPA from a non-target school (University of Colorado), and am just wrapping up my second year as a consultant at Accenture where I actually have had some great success - I have established two new global offerings with multimillion dollar sales pipelines, established myself as a company-wide SME in all things water, and happily earned an early promotion.
I am now looking to make my move though, and am aiming for either Private Equity, International Finance (e.g. IFC), or MBB -- any advice on how to make a successful move? Unfortunately, CU-Boulder and Accenture do not have that top brand recognition, or the deep alumni network in PE/Finance/Consulting, so networking has been a little tough.
Thoughts? MBA? Cold emailing? More Networking?
All thoughts and CU jokes are welcome.
