Hello,
I am primarily looking in USA as my family is here. But I am open to UK and Canada as well. But I have heard many negative reviews about post MBA job opportunities in UK and Canada.
In my IT career which includes two years international experience in UK, I have gained technical, functional expertise in various domains and have got exposure to nuances of multiple cultures and inter-personal work behavior. Now I would like to combine my experience with finance, marketing or International business to diversify into field of business consulting. I want to direct my career to strategic business consulting.

Thanks,
Archana

Archana,

International Business as a specialization increased in the past decade with Thunderbird leading the way. However, Thunderbird is now a part of ASU and International Business as a standalone specialization has lost it's sheen - so as to say in US.
University of South Carolina - Moore has an MBA specializing in International Business. I would advice you not to go that way, rather focus on what you want to do?

Finance is very different from Marketing so requires different preparation. Do you want to work into IT related Consulting, ERP Implementation? IT Project Management? IT Process Improvement? Cyber Security Consulting?

You also need to drop your anchor in geography. US, UK, Canada is pretty vast. If you want to get into Strategic Business Consulting - MBB - types. Then apply to the likes of Top 10 in US, LBS, Oxford, Cambridge in UK. Ivey in Canada.
