1.Pre sales in IT ?

2.Marketing in FMCG ( do they really consider folks with such high experience?)

3.product management ( how easy it is to crack it)

Note :- I don't want a Business analyst role

Hey Vijay,

Being in kind of similar situation... I just loved your frank reason for doing MBA...

Pre-sales is something you can surely get... no idea about others

Hey Vijay, I think for IT guy a very good profile can be business development which prolly comes under marketing. So you can go for that too.

HI  All, 

I have 6 years  experience in IT. Now I am really tired with respect to coding and no longer enjoy it and  want a shift.

So I have decided for an MBA with my interest being in marketing.

I would like to know  what role an IT associate can get post MBA (marketing)  and career prospects for  below options

1.Pre sales in IT  ?

2.Marketing in FMCG   ( do they really consider folks with such high experience?)

Note :-I have some constraints

1.I don't want a Business analyst role 

2. have a homeloan  EMI of 30K 


In case if nothing works out I am keeping the option of re locating to USA in development role. (Business as usual mode).

Need your valuable advice and insights experts!!!

With your profile, you can move to consulting. But you will be valued in the IT space. So you should look at pre-sales and BA roles. Also, no FMCG for you. Finally, you should look at only 1 yr MBA or an MBA abroad. Given your home loan, how you will manage the EMI is something you should give careful thought to. I would suggest you look for onsite opportunities, save enough money to pay off the loan and then do an MBA where the avg workex of the class is around 6-7 years.
