I am thinking of doing a certification in finance to build profile. I am thinking of doing CMA (Certified Management Accountant).


Mechanical Engineer (2014 pass out from NIT)

1.5 year experience - IBM -Developed application for Enterprise Performance Management (finance based)

Currently working as techno-commercial manager in an Automobile company- looking after sales and service.

I am planning to do MBA in 2017 and aiming for General Management profile.

Is CMA certification good choice for me?

Will it help me in securing a general management job after MBA?

Do I need to look for some other certification?

Please suggest. I am really confused.

Does doing courses in coursera help to build my profile.?

I am interested in finance and thinking of doing some online courses in coursera like introduction to finance etc.will this really help me in profile building perspective ..?

You need to sell yourself like an 'object'.Extra-curricular and added skills only help you nail the objective clearly. FRM/CFA is too trite and so is NGO work etc.Better have an entrepreneurial front(development of a game/app etc) to increase your sellability.Rest ask from some alumni.

It's good to know that you are going for MBA to enhance your career. There are various certification available in the market that you can pursue to showcase your interest to the Business School that you are applying to. If you want to make your career in the marketing domain then, you can visit the Coursera or Udemy website.
