@goel.monshu A generalist profile would mean that one will have to perform job which will include the tasks of not one but varied verticals like Marketing, HR, Finance, Operations etc.

Would you suggest quitting job of 2 years to prepare for CAT? Am changing my field altogether to HR and am really passionate about it. My current experience has been enriching however it's irrelevant to the field I am moving to. My current working hours doesn't permit me to dedicate time to study. Please give me your thoughts. Thank you :)

@shabaru Hi, quitting ones job to prepare for CAT doesn't make much sense because one will be bombarded with questions during one's interview and it will be expected to tactically deal with these questions. Besides, CAT is highly unpredictable an examination. Rather suggest to find out time from your busy schedule and prepare.

I would suggest not to. Work experience in any form is relevant. Try to get some internships in HR where you can work and prepare simultaneously.

@amiableboi Hi, no comments on other colleges. Yes, XLRI will top the list followed by MDI Gurgaon and TISS. To get a better picture of the scenario please have a look at the college brochures of each of these colleges as well as their placement brochures. Take a look at the average and median salaries offered, the names of the companies as well as the sectors these companies represent. That will give you a better picture.

@Nipun008 Yes there are a few people with work experience of around 4 years. You can contact @jobjb who is our senior and had around 4 years of experience prior to MBA from MDI Gurgaon.

In my batch (2009-11), I had  an experience of 40 Months (3 years and 4 months), one of my batch-mates had an experience of over 7 years, a couple of others had an experience of 24-30 months- for none of us the experience proved "bad"

If I want to know how to build and develop organisation, whattivates people, I love interaction with people, would this reasons suffice

Well interactions with people will not suffice. However, I advise you to read up a few Motivation Theories from Organisational Behavior, which an employer can use to keep his/her employees motivated to perform.
