@Ammz said:@visionIIM-ACL sir.. pursuing MBA-IT is said to get one a job of Project Manager/Business Analyst/etc. But if somebody does MBA just after the completion of B.Tech. (with no work-ex). Still would he/she be offered the same role? And why?
I am not clear with the role of presale ....
Does presale person convince client to purchase the product which has been already made by company?
How he is different from IT consultant??
A bit confused ..
I have MBA interview in coming days..I have filled "IT consultancy" as my first preference and I am working as Senior softeware engineer for the past 4 years as coder.
Now if i tell in interview that I want to go in IT consultancy then would it hamper my chances or should I term my short term goal as Project mgmt only as project mgmt more relates to my job.
@invban said:@ashish100 Consulting indeed is a challenging job and there would be no Consulting without Consultants , isn't it ?? As i said earlier , PM role involves a different set of skill sets which is more admin oriented ,but that does not mean its easy stuff ..... on a multimillion dollar Implementation Project ( I am not referring to the Support Projects since they are more or less stable) stakes are very high and with the crunched time lines and with all constraints in hands , PM job becomes very critical .......so I am talking wrt high profile Projects ........MBA is not at all essential for a PM role that is right .......however a person with an MBA + WORK EX can bring a good "maturity" level to the Role (my personal point of view though) , in some Projects , a Consultant may be given the role to lead the Project ; in huge Projects , in general a separate person (who does not get involved in Consulting) plays that Role ...........It all depends on what you are comfortable with , so in fact you can't compare one on one actually .......Best is to start with Consulting , and then take on PM jobs
