jatt,

I'm not sure ..yet. I know what I don't want to do -- but I don't yet know what I want to do :) I would perhaps move to Industry or, if there is an appropriate rationalization based on my experience, I might try management consulting as well. I have no desire to even try for IB - the job profile does not interest me and also don't think I'm qualified (for various reasons) for that job. Works (or doesn't work) both ways.

What about you?

I will be looking at industry. Making 300K isn't the top of my priority.


Too old for IB? And what might that age be my friend?


I hear you buddy. I am a year or so younger than you are and am thinking myself that I am too old for IB. Congrats on your admit to INSEAD. I am contemplating to apply there for the Jan 08 intake. What potential industries will you be targetting post-MBA, if I may ask?

Can someone talk about Business development?

In marketing, there is this thing called Product Management. I would like to know more about it. I am not the creative ad guy types. Would be more interested in the GM/Corporate Strategy kinda roles. Hence brand management is not for me. So wanted to know more about Product Management.

Anyone there from this function?

I just stumbled across this thread and I have to say it is fantastic! It seems that I am bucking the trend in that I really have no interest in a finance/banking related field. I am very interested in marketing. And I have to profusely thank bulishona for all of the info. on brand management as that is the specific area that I'm interested in. I'm also considering market research. However, the more I learn about different careers, the more I'm considering them. I've just recently found out more information about operations management and that sounds interesting too. Actually, even managment consulting sounds fascinating now.

Hmm... maybe reading this thread wasn't such a good idea...

Currently in my 1st year of MBA program. Going in, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do (I had only ruled out Finance/Ibanking) and what I want to do is still subject to change. However, for my internship, I wanted a taste of something with autonomy and responsibility for innovation or new product launch. Prior to school, I was on an innovation team at a CPG and I liked the work itself but felt it was too slow-moving for my preferences. I think I will be much more successful in a fast-paced environment.

So, I am going to Amazon this summer for a Senior Product Manager internship. I am really excited and I know it will be a very different experience, allowing me to 'triangulate' what it is that I want to do after graduation.



Super! good luck and do let us know how it went.

Is it pretty much the same with your classmates as well? Are people headstrong on what they want to do now - as compared to what they were when they came in ?

I think the best way for searching any thing is search engines.Because you can get the exact data with fact and figures from there.And if you want to do it your self for more accuracy than the main thing to survey the market near you and get feedback from the people.
