Graduated (almost) with an Industrial Engineering degree but realized it's not the industry I want to work in. What are my available options and how should I pursue them as far as entering business world goes?

Im graduating in two weeks with a degree in Industrial Engineering from University at Buffalo and currently have 1 internship under my belt. After working at this internship I realized it's not something I want to do for the rest of my life due to how quickly they cap out (financially). It doesn't allow too many opportunities to move up in to a company. I see some of my friends who graduated 5-6 years ago are still in the same position that they started in engineering.
I want to eventually work where I have opportunities to move up in the career. So I want to know what would be my best option to enter into Business setting where I can use my engineering degree as a leverage. I don't have a solid GPA to start with. And as far as going to MBA school, its not an option right now due to financial reasons. But any idea or experience with this would be really helpful.
