I am an enigeer from IIEST in 2014 and an MBA from IIM Ranchi in 2018. Have a total of 3 years of work ex. Post my MBA, I have been working in Sales. However, I wish to move into consulting, preferrably abroad. Does a second MBA from abroad help my cause? Also, which institutes abroad should I be targeting?
Thanks a ton in advance.
Have you given a thought to going for a specialized Masters Program (in your domain of interest)? I had an MBA from one of the IITs and after working for few years post my MBA, I figured out that I don't want to be in IT anymore (even though I was in Global Pre Sales and Transition, that provided me opportunities to visit US and Europe). My experience to that point was in Supply Chain solutions domain and that was my area of interest as well so I decided to pursue a Masters in SCM in USA. Considering the economic scenario in US, I decided to apply only to the top schools for better employment prospects. I got an admit in a SCM Masters program in a top ten school and post graduation, I was able to switch my Industry (Moved to manufacturing), Function (moved to core SCM) and of course Geography (currently in US). I believe there may not be a definite answer to your scenario, it all depends on what kind of career options you want to pursue and then figure out how your second MBA fits in that plan and whether a specialized masters will suffice.
Hi, I have an MBA from not-so-great institute. I have a total work experience of 5.3 years in Automotive/Automotive consulting. My profiles are a bit mixed up. I am considering second MBA. I wanted to know whether it makes sense going for 2nd MBA from institues like ISB?
I am an MBA from IITD with a B.Tech in CS from IGIT, Delhi. I have 5+ yrs of exp in Telecom & Media. I am planning to go for second MBA from one of top 25 global b-Schools.
I recently took my GMAT & scored 690 (Q48 V36). I was planning to apply to INSEAD, Stanford, Booth and Stern. But many of my friends have discouraged me to apply considering my low score.
Now I am confused, whether to apply to the above schools or not.
Can anyone suggest.
My two bits. Its not easy recruiting in US without an American degree. and it makes limited sense to go back yo India after an American MBA. so figure out where you want to be !
Similar dilemma. Have an MBA from FMS Delhi. Corporate banking work ex in an MNC bank for 3 years. 720 GMAT. CFA L3 candidate and contemplating a second MBA. Any advice ?
I am a final yea B.Tech student of DCE, aiming for CAT '11.
My question to the revered seniors is : How exactly does one explain (in our essays) , the reason for a second MBA? I am sure this question will be asked to us again and again. Potential employers will also ask this question (employers after the 2nd MBA). Doesn't this question become more difficult if the first MBA was from colleges like IIM, MDI etc.? Can one be honest up-front and say "immigration was my motive"?
I know I sound like a big mouth, asking this when I'm not yet a graduate :), but was too curious to wait for 4 years more....
Accidentally started another thread, cause I couldn't find this one previously. I would appreciate some advice from anyone who is aware of candidates who have pursued a second MBA at a top 5 US B school, after completing a top MBA in India. I know such there are few such candidates out there, which is why I'm not sure how much information is out there. Anyhow, I am looking to learn about what profiles are required and how the Bschool looks upon such candidates, what sort of work ex helps the best, and any gyaan that can help me understand the process better.
A little bit about me -
I have an MBA from one of the top IIMs, and have cumulative work experience of about 2 and a half years prior to and following my MBA, including internships (across US, Europe, India) in consulting and marketing. I am seeking to apply either end of this year or the next, so I'll have at least about 3.5 years of total work ex by the time of joining the program. Also I have a 760 on my GMAT.
The most obvious question is why I'm seeking a second MBA, and while I can list the usual reasons of wanting to relocate to the US or looking at breaking into PE/VC or management consulting...I guess its mostly a personal decision, and since I'm 25 at present and single, I think I'm young enough to consider it.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks a lot!
