Is it too late for me?

Dear monkeys,

1. I am a 23 year old Brazilian who wasted a few years on an engineer that I do not like at all.
2. When I first met Consulting I felt in love and decided to make a change: Moved from Control and Automation Engineering to Industrial and Operations while also studying Financial Management.
3. I speak Portuguese, English and Spanish. Planning to include French on the list by the time I apply.
4. Even though I am majoring at Brazil's best federal university and country's second overall, I will be 26 when I finish my degrees.

Will it be too late to apply for MBB here in Brazil?

Thanks for the help!

All a prospective employer is going to see is your work experience and time in school on your resume. They can infer your age from that but to answer your original question, I wouldn't worry about your age.

Not too late at all. Age is not a problem unless you're like 50+.

Thank you guys!
Since age is not a big issue as I thought, would it be wise to delay my graduation in order to study abroad?
I have an opportunity of a sponsored exchange program to USA or Europe - which is an idea that I love - but on the other hand if I take it I'm pretty much forced to postdate my graduation in one year.

I don't see any issue with that!
