Hey fellow monkeys. Hello to you from the lovely state of Arizona where it is a beautiful 75 out, only days from Christmas. I am a junior at Arizona State studying finance. I have a 3.7 GPA, am a proud brother of Delta Upsilon, and am in Army ROTC. My career plan is to serve 4 years as an Army officer, graduate from a top 25 MBA and work as a management consultant.
Now the question lies here in which branch would provide the leadership building and overall development that would help me succeed in an MBA, as a management consultant, and in the business world in general. I will be choosing my branch within the next year, so I am feeling it around well ahead of time.
I am currently thinking about going armor or aviation. I believe that being in a combat arms branch would be more intense than a combat support branch, thus requiring myself further my leadership skills and my ability to think and act well under pressure. I'm sure there would also be a good argument for going a combat support branch route, I've just yet to find that reasoning.
Much thanks and I look forward to hearing your insights gentlemen.
