I do not understand which is better for me- A MBA in Finance from Calcutta University or M.Com in Marketing from St. Xaviers College Kolkata? Although i score well in Finance, I do not understand whether I have natural inclination towards it. Whereas I believe I have natural inclination towards Marketing. I plan to do a job for few years after my master degree and then eventually be a professor. Kindly help me with this problem.
You have mentioned a variety of options in front of you but you haven't talked about what YOU want to do. Where does your interests lie? Where do you want to study?
dnt dilute ur concentartion and preparation now, btr think after giving ur mba entrances
I'm 23 years old, I live in India and am thoroughly confused about what to do next with my life. I graduated last year with a Bachelors in Commerce and worked for 9 months in a Market Research company. I then quit my job as I wanted to focus on studying further and started studying for my MBA entrance exams .I have been studying for them for the past 4 months but am now wondering whether this is the right step for me at this stage.
I have also applied to 'Masters in International Business' courses in Australia and got admission into Monash and Macquarie University for these courses. However, if I do go to Australia to study, I would ideally like to work there for atleast a couple of years.Once again, I am not sure whether I would get a job in Australia after graduating with a Masters because, from what I've heard, Australian companies prefer people with work experience in Australia and I would, therefore be competing with people with bachelor's degrees and thus perhaps be over-qualified and not get a job.
I could also get back to working, my family knows people who would give me a job if I needed one. I have only stopped working 5 months ago and it is not too late for me to get back into the job market for a year or two and then opt for further studies(or is it?). I am 23, if I work for say, 2 more years and get a total experience of 3 years and then opt for a Masters program, I will be 25-26 when I enter the program and be 27-28 when I graduate with a Masters.(won't that be rather old?).
The reason why I am facing this dilemma is, in India- no one will hire you with just a bachelor's degree, a master's degree is almost a pre-requisite, even for an entry-level job. However, from what I have researched, experience is vital abroad and a master's degree is done by people who have worked for a fair while and want to broaden their career prospects.
