Hi all,

Abt me : I completed my Computer Science Engineering and working since 3 yrs. I would like to have a good idea of the specializations in MBA

Can you suggest me a source where i can get an elaborate discription of the major specializations.

It would be good if the following aspects are also discussed there..
- Why the specialization has those subjects or courses in its curriculum and how that knowledge helps the student in his/her work

At work :
- What would be the exact work of the person in his job after his MBA

- What level of responsibility is expected from him at work

- what kinds of powers or influences does the person has in the organisation he works

- What could be effect on his personal life ...like some profiles may have have hectic work demanding longer work hours, some may expect ur availabilty all the time, in some profiles u need to intereact with diff ppl with conflicting interests or some may have lot of stress and strain on u


I have answered the questions below ... Let me know which specialization to choose ...
It would be really great of you , If an explaination can also be provided

Do you have a liking for number crunching? I am not so interested in it, but at same time not averse to it

Do you like to work in teams or u like to work alone?
I enjoy both ways
I feel , from being in teams i can learn from the others
But i dont like sharing work or responsibility with others. I love taking the whole responsibility and beeing recognized for that

Do you find it easy to convince people to do what you want? may not be altimes but many times I find it difficult to convice ppl

Do you have a creative mind?
I cant judge that abt me
But yes, I did many artistic things from garbage at my home
but that doesnt justify ...So I can rate myself as 5 on a scale of 10

Do you like travelling? - As a recreation. Not for work on a routine basis.

Do you find it easy to talk to strangers? - Yes, when compared to others I can easily make friends ...taking the hint of common interests

1) Why did you decide to go for MBA, were you frustrated with your existing job role or you just wanted to have better growth opportunities?

wanted to have better growth opportunities


2) What do you want to become, what are your ambitions? Do you have any particular profile in mind? If yes, then will a MBA in Operations help you in getting there?

want to avoid the jobs where we get some work which is decided by somebody and we do not know the reason adn the result of that work

I should be involved at the decision making level of a project ..

I have tried to reduce the length of your SOP by 10 words. When I started, I thought that you must have improved your career goals. By the time I reached there, I found that it is still vague specially Ten years down the line part. You can remove that if you wish!!

During graduation in computer science and 3-year stint at an MNC, the diverse environments taught me professionalism and the means to contribute to team synergy while contributing individually. After marriage, as a homemaker, the day-to-day activities made me realize the importance of management and taking responsibility of every aspect of life. Now, ending the hiatus, I want to take plunge in the corporate world. I would like to get my hands fully into the projects and have a major influence on their initiation, implementation and management. For this, besides leveraging my technical knowledge, acquiring managerial skills is also necessary. Ten years down the line, I see myself in a career, which suits my abilities and interests while giving opportunities to broaden my thought process.

A formal management education from top business school like FMS would equip me with a complete overview of business and management intricacies. Moreover, its distinguished alumni network provides a platform for learning from peers in addition to the knowledge acquired from Professors.

I would like to leverage my technical knowledge and also acquire managerial skills because they become crucial while moving up the corporate ladder. Ten years down the line, I see myself in a career which gives me opportunities to learn and guide people.

I would like to leverage my technical knowledge and apply it for the improvement of operations and profitability of an organization, by being part of its decision making echelon. Ten years down the line, I see myself in a career which gives me opportunities to learn and guide people. Apart from nurturing my interpersonal and communication skills, it also broadens my thought process.


A formal management education from top business school like FMS which has superior industry interaction and excellent management research base would equip me with a complete overview of business and management intricacies.

4. count - around 165
5. Specific problems :
I have a confusion abt the first line in second para.
In the first form , I have put forth clearly my goal...
but felt that decision, operations and profitability are big words ..which come into picture only when we are at CEO level.. and that comes only after 15-20 years..
So wrote the second simpler form

could you pls suggest regarding this?

My sop:

During my graduation in computer science from an esteemed university and three years of work experience in a multinational corporation, the diverse environments taught me professionalism and to contribute to team synergy while contributing individually. After marriage, as a homemaker, the day-to-day activities made me realize the importance of management and taking sole responsibility of every aspect of life.

My career objective is to leverage my technical knowledge and apply it for the improvement of operations and profitability of an organization, by being part of its decision making echelon. I foresee myself as a manager with complete overview of business and management intricacies. A formal management education from a reputed business school like FMS which has superior industry interaction and excellent management research base would equip me with the required skills. Moreover, its distinguished alumni network also provides me with a platform for learning from diversified peers with healthy competition, while I give back the same.
