#1 Shifting into strategy consulting (payments/fs) after a 2 year fintech grad scheme?

Hi all, I have an MSc in Management, and I am starting a graduate scheme in a bank focused on fintech, which will include a lot of strategy analyst rotations, excel, powerpoint blah blah blah. I think the biggest negative is that it will have little to no client-facing work. I got to assessment centres for all of the big 4 management consulting, but didn't turn up to two of them as I really went off the idea of working in the big 4 for consulting, and I already had my job offer. I also interviewed with some boutiques, but they were not as successful. I'm very interested in working in MBB, in the verticals of financial services/payments. I am hoping that my 2 years in industry in which I am working on a fintech offering will be highly relevant and beneficial to the work that I would be doing at MBB. (due to the nature of the work, as well as the skills picked up along on the way) I do aim to do an MBA in the US/EU down the line, and I think this would be my biggest opp of shifting into MBB, but I aiming to get into consulting before this to strengthen my application. What are your thoughts on this, and what can I really be doing in the meantime to really bolster my application to MBB following the end of the graduate scheme? Many thanks

Vis a vis MBB consulting, these firms like intelligent strategic thinkers so you should definitely tilt your graduate scheme towards strategy work rather than operational work. They also like C Suite connections so try and get to work for senior authorisers. Most graduate schemes create opportunities to craft your program so I'd use whatever time is left on the scheme to do the above. Otherwise I'd look at an MBA from a top school. MBB are biased towards the top schools.
