I am an Indian engineering male working for last 4 years in various roles for a Power generation & Mining company in India.
My short term goal is to move into management consulting Domain after MBA.
I have applied to Fuqua, MIT Sloan, and Cornell in Round 1, and have already been interviewed by Fuqua for EA.
Considering, to apply to Darden, emory, & UNC in Round 2.
But certain changes have transpired in my career. I have received an offer from PwC for a senior consultant role
in Utilities & Mining Division. Though I have decided to join them next month, I am getting confused on how to
present this to admission committees.
Should I send email regarding this move to the schools I have already applied? will it strengthen or
weaken my applications? Do I need to explain the move?
Should I reshape my goals as I have now achieved my goal of moving into consultancy w/o MBA?
Will this be considered unethical because I knew that I'll have to leave the company for an MBA school in less than a year?
Well I think this is a great opportunity for you to update the Adcom about this positive improvement. And I think you can write them a short letter asking for it to be included in your application materials. The main idea would be: a) I took this better job. b) explain what is better about it c) (VERY IMPORTANT) show how this is bringing you yet closer to your goal.
I don't think there's anything unethical about your decision, but it is not likely to be appreciated by PwC and you need to figure out how to gently take your leave of them without burning your bridges.
Hope this helps,
