However, now I’m doing project/program management work with nothing finance-related in sight…. Looking to exit into a finance/ops/strategy role, anyone make that move recently?

I studied SCM in college but I’ve been working through tech implementations on the ptp side for about 4 years now - it’s been all indirect client work though and no supply chain. How tough is it to pivot to more process and supply chain based strategy projects - do I need to get my mba. At a smaller firm now and feel like I’d have to jump to an Accenture to actually have the ability to do that kind of work (logistics and trade optimization, planning, manufacturing)

I'm 27..been working at KPMG for 6 years in advisory practice as a generalist (soft tagged to tech, media, telco). Consulting is really not my thing. I really don't know what else to do either. I'm applying for MBA this to explore my options. But I'm worried my past experience would only lead me to a Post-MBA consulting job. How do I exit this industry when I don't know where to go to? PS: would really appreciate some suggestions. Quite desperate and in crisis here. No KPMG jokes please.
