Need some thoughts

I am applying to haas in the first round and my long term career vision is to start my own education firm (which will be product based) to provide quality education to all kids irrespective of their background.

For post-MBA goals, I could think of a couple of options to lead me there
1. Project Management (preferably social sector, both for profit or non-profit)
2. Social sector consulting or General strategy consulting
3. Product Management (design, marketing, and management)

I am struggling to understand which ones would make more sense given my long term goal.

My background - Engineering (IIT)-->2 year as Business Analyst-->Education space (non profit) 5 years ---> Education (for profit product based company, current)

Suggestions please, also if you can put me in touch with someone who had a similar path, I would be so grateful.

My two cents is that whatever you chose, you want your long term goals to show some sort of progression from your short term goals like increasing responsibility etc. other than that I'm not sure that there is a"right" track to chose as long as you can articulate how bschool will help you reach short term and how your short term will help you reach your long term.
