After you complete your MBA and if you have the ability to travel, I would suggest looking for a position with a major consulting firm. Look for a firm that has a strong BI practice. Gartner has a Magic Quadrant for BI consulting firms. Consulting will get you exposure to multiple technologies and industries. Otherwise, focus on companies that have complex and/or large data.
Good luck in your business intelligence career endeavors.
