I am working as a back-office (shudders) analyst at a bank. I wanted to get my foot into medical services/consulting when I was an undergraduate student, but somewhere along the way I forgot my goals and am squandering my recently-graduated years in BO. I am willing to go to school again for sciences and blend that with my business degree/experience. The quandaries are:
- Should I bother going to school for Biomed/biology? I see a lot of consultants who are former PhDs getting into Bain, McKinsey, etc. A few are solely biomedical engineers with zero FORMAl finance experience (my props)
- Will my basic business experiences be worth anything? I am doing operations for a bank, not something related to the med field and typically not sexy work (I know some IBD's parlay into med consulting/ m&a consulting, because they are highly regarded in all areas of finance)
- I am a recent graduate.
Feel free to lash out with any suggestions. Really asking seriously and want to commit to something long-term and fruitful.
