I'l tell what typically companies do with such guys..
they keep them in their practice depts..use them for pre-sales=>documenting,research,decks,estimation excels etc
and gradually move them up to sales, which typically is a challenging job..
so thats the sales track..
Now in the delivery that is the PM role..its fairly simple..just like any other tech person..he comes Account Mgr.and then delivery head for some practice or center..it goes on..
Now the BA can remain in business analysis track..but the thing is initially he wld not be exposed much to clients..cos they wld not prefer..someone with no exp..so he/she will be used as a shadow resource..for use case preparation, scenarios analysis etc etc.. this might culminate into later stages of the PM track
Again all these things vary with every company..
The Alumni meet is planned for October 9th and 10th.

Looking forward to have an awesome time :D
sahil9007 Sayshii.. which job in a bpo is best suited and matched for mba??as a work ex
i want to be a business analyst. I am going to complete my MBA by March 2011.
Right now I am doing a majors in finance. From what I have come to know, business analysts have become very important to an organisation, even during the recessions. Also they are required in all kinds of sectors.
But the most number of jobs for them are available with IT companies. So I am trying to tailor make my resume accordingly to fulfill the job specification criterion.
After consulting the senior level managers of a few companies I have come to know that they require MBA graduates with an IT background and finance as their main domain. I do not have a work experience and my B school does not offer IT subjects.
So I am trying to find certifications, projects, whatever it takes to fulfill the former criteria.
I have read that OBIEE(oracle business intelligence enterprise) 11g is going to be released on 27 July. I was wondering if it is a widely used tool so that doing its certification will give me an edge. Also what if an MCITP(microsoft certification ) is available for business intelligence. Because now a days business project management and business intelligence go hand in hand.also will doing an ERP certification help me in the right direction?
i am confused and require the correct guidance.
It entirely depends on the requirement of the organisation, where you are fitting in that requirement and how well you perform in the interview if you get a call.
It may not be important to know how pointers work or which java collection is best to use in different scenarios but it is MUST to know how the development work goes on,various hurdles and technical issues that can haunt at the level of the programmer if you really want to make some real business development at the higher levels, unless you are someone who is happy taking 10 lakh salary as a Business Analyst/Business Development officer but hardly is doing what the name says. :P
It will depend on the specialization you take during your MBA...
if you take systems then you will go into the "Project Management" career path.
If you take Marketing then you will be part of new intiatives, business strategy etc. for your company..
Am a software developer having 6 years of experience and recently began thinking about my career path.
I took my time pondering over my likes/dislikes, dreams et al and finally have this to say.
- Using IT to transform the way business is done excites me. I have worked with a few tech savvy clients and I know for sure that I want to be like them.
- When you work for an IT company, you dont get much business insight as one would get in the IT dept of a core company (BFSI, Manufacturing, Travel and Logistics etc...)
- I also had a look at the role of a CTO in an organization and would love to see myself titled as a CTO 10 years down the line :-).
So, How does the career path of a CTO look like? esp in non IT companies? And How should I prepare for reaching that position? currently I have a BTech in IT and am well versed with technology and architecture.
thanks in advance,
