I have a healthcare background and have been working in a fortune 500 pharma for 3-4 years now. I wanted to get peoples opinions on how feesible/likely it would be to move into ibanking or consulting after the MBA with minimal finance/no finance experience?

more importantly at the internship I am wondering how competitive it would be to get an ibanking role since my understanding is that recruiting starts in sept of year 1 before being able to gain any finance experience or taking any finance courses

In this case would strategy consulting at the big 3 be a better fit?

Yes absolutely, and your Healthcare background would come in handy there. You just need to score a summer associate position. So my advice would be to work on this case interviews. Pick up a copy of case in point.
