Just let them know you're interested to stay on the waiting list, and update them with any professional developments in your life that you can connect with your future career and with the MFE. Apart from that, you can't do very much.

All the best

Hi,
My profile: Completed my Bachelors of Pharmacy and currently working in production/manufacturing department of a Pharmaceutical company.
Interested in doing MBA in Operations/supply chain. Please name top institutes in India as well as in abroad which accepts science background graduates.


Look at the US News and World Report Rankings of US Universities and look for the Top departments of Industrial Engineering / Operations Research. Then take the same list and shorten it to those Universities that also have a strong business school. Start there!

All the best

Dear Baccardi Sprite,

I came across your posts recently, and I have been very impressed with your balanced responses to everyone. Thank you for your yeoman service to the community.

I would like to ask you a question. I have about 9 years of work ex with the last four being in IT Marketing and Sales Operations. I recently had a job offer for INR 21 Lakhs in Bangalore that i turned down since I seem to have developed an aversion to IT jobs. I find them to be stifling my creativity.

I request you to let me know if you are aware of ways and means that people adopt to try and figure out their passion in life, the work that they come to love and cherish. Is this a utopian ideal to chase one's passion, or, as steve jobs said, it is important to "stay hungry, stay foolish"?

I find myself at a crossroads in my career, a sort of mid-life crisis, since I have turned down a brilliant job offer with a very large company, and I seem to have no alternative career ideas in mind. Am I lost? If yes, how do i figure this out?

Sorry if this is too vague and lacking in focus. Curious to know your thoughts in this regard. Thanks in advance for the same.


Philosophical request, indicating your requirements for guidance may be more than I am intellectually qualified to give :-).

I don't think you're lost (yet), but guess you're simply looking for a professional "something" that wakes you up and keeps you going for the next 30 years (assuming you're about 30 now). "Something" could be a professional career you want to enjoy over the next 10-20-30 years; a goal you might want to reach in about 10-20-30 years; an activity / project(s) / initiative that you have enjoyed so much that you wouldn't mind doing that professionally over a longer term (ok... rockstar might be slightly difficult :-)).

That "something" (which you need to figure out) could be enabled by a combination of a few things:

- Current (& short term developing) skills, that you can apply & transfer
- Additional skills / experience / education you need to make the jump to that "something"; what ever that is decides how big a jump you need to make
- Where you specifically can get that education (if required per above point).

I'd suggest taking someone you know / love / trust and sit on a secluded spot on a beach by the ECR, and spend a few hours thinking about the "something"; come back and post - after which I could give you more specific advice.

All the best

Speaking one European Language (French would help) and one emerging market language (like Chinese) would certainly help in customer facing & marketing / brand management roles.

Else, please try to get a role as a Marketing / Business Analyst with a company selling some sort of premium / luxury products. It's best to move to the Marketing / Brand Management role ahead of any education than try after getting education....Forget any certifications....
