Hi !!! I have more than 10 years of experience and now I want to do an MBA .. I am searching for an one year MBA program €Ś.. How is S P Jain Global ?? Can anyone tell me about the eligibility criteria and the selection process??
I am in the same boat and deliberating cautiously. No final decision as yet.
You need to define you TRUE purpose of study (not the eaasy one!!). There should be one and only one purpose, rest are just secondary. If you are not sure then start from the very basic, do you need to do an MBA?
For me it is 'knowledge', strange but true, I have reason for that. money, career change, progression etc are not so important as I am already doing pretty well, neither cost of the study is a determining factor. You need to understand very clearly your priorities and key objective. Don't fool yourself!!
For knowledge, I am more inclined to UK colleges over US and rest of EU knowing fully that it is a major gamble as UK job market is tough for Indians, even if you are from the top 3 and not interested in Finance. Yes, it is tough. Some one got some flying job does not mean that you will also get. If you are interested in IT or any finance job then may be a bit different. Then again, that defeats your purpose of changing industry. Dear friend, you do not have much time to experiement.
Secondly, most of the UK courses are 1 year, except LBS in the top league. Then again, LBS is more for Finance.
Indian school, you need to understand whether you like the Indian style of management or American or European style.
Whatever it is, it is a major risk as not necessarily you will get a job as per your current position, excluding IT. I am from a traditional and conservative industry , where you need to move up in the lader. I am not sure whether I can come back to my industry or not. Definitely I would not go to IT industry like TCS/Infy/Wipro after doing my MBA, I an not that desparate.
Anyway, learn from this forum and focus on your GMAT.
A word of caution, no offence to others, this forum has mostly 2-5 years IT guys, who may not be able to appreciate your way of thinking.
I am also in similar situation with 9 years IT experience and now as a Project Manager. Want to move out of IT and currently in US. I have strong domain knowledge in Insurance and have completed FLMI. Would MBA in Organizational behaviour be useful considering the fact of career shift? Pls suggest..
