I have gained a place on the graduate rotational leadership programme at a major heavy industrial company which involves me going to different divisions to lead projects. I have been given a choice of either going down the R&D path or the Operations Management path. Being an engineer from a top ranked university with heavy research output my experience has mainly been within the R&D sphere, so I am a bit lost when it comes to which path I should pick. Can fellow engineers here give me some insight? I would not like to be a specialist all my life. I see myself as a leadership/business guy leveraging upon my engineering skills to climb the ladder towards c-suit roles in an engineering company or becoming a strategy consultant in the future.
