I am an engineering working in the energy sector at a top corporation (think exxon/chevron). I work in large capital downstream project planning and execution. I have 2 years of full-time work experience along with my degree in engineering from a top-10 engineering program. My GMAT and GPA are both comparable with those of schools in the top 10. I am looking to transition into consulting or investment banking post MBA.
My questions are:
- is it harder to get in from with a non traditional background
- is it difficult to get in without the typical 4-6 years of experience?
