Newbie : Please review my plans for the future

Hi ,

Thank you for creating such a wonderful site for providing information that was supposedly esoteric. I am an engineering undergraduate student ( electronics and communication ) from a pretty good college in Bangalore, India. I have been planning for Maters in management degree from UK or IREALND and want to enter into corporate finance or management consulting. My academics are strong and I also hold leadership roles in college clubs and volunteered for activities and won a technical project competition. Also, I had finished few online finance courses from top universities like Yale and IIT.
As of now, I do not have any work experience in any field and I find your site very valuable. Are the chances of entering management consulting or corporate finance good for me? assuming I do my Masters in management from one of top 5 business schools in the UK or IRELAND(Imperial, UCD Smurfit, Warwick, LBS, TCD).

Pleasure share your views on the above, it would be very helpful to me.

Thank you
