URGENT Suggessions needed .. MBA BANKING TECHNOLOGY, PONDICHERRY UNIVERSITY

.........................

Info about MBA in Banking Technology from internet:
It is a blend of finance, management, information technology and banking, the course curriculum covers principles of management and functional specialisations, specialised subjects to manage banks and financial institutions and advanced domain-specific IT subjects.

The programme is primarily aimed at meeting the domain-specific manpower requirements of IT and software companies involved in developing software solutions for large Indian and international banking and financial institutions such as TCS, CTS, Polaris, Wipro and HCL. Moreover, it looks at meeting the requirements of technology management positions in banks, stock exchanges, finance companies and financial institutions.

Graduates can become business analysts, data centre managers, information security heads and technology managers

My opinion:

As this banking course is designed specifically for outsourced Finance services to Indian IT companies, it might be risky right now to get a job in this sector. The reasons are obvious that many of international banking projects are on freeze and laying off is common from IT companies specially in such projects. But 2 years down the line thinga can improve.

MBA in Banking Tech will also restrict you in a particular vertical while a general MBA would provide you more career options. BITS is anyday a better brand and has a good alumni network worldover, require for placements. Finally its your choice if you want to do a vertical specific MBA or general. Depends on the passion you have for banking + technology.

Regarding your doubt on whether you can earn 10-25 pa after 10-15 years of experience Well, you can do that for sure in both options :D

All the best.

All the best.
Hi all, Even i have got my results, 2Xth rank, in MBA Banking Technology under pondicherry university. Presently i'm working in a MNC, bangalore(2008 batch, 10 months experience). Since i got software engineer offer frm the same company when i got placed, but they called to work as systems engineer in Infrastructure Maintenance Services(IMS) dept. I dont want to work with tht company because of low pay (b'lore, 18k) and working field with client n timings n weekly off's....

So i decided to go for Banking Technology, though its a recession period,..
After completing two years in MBA, i hope there wont be same situation. Since IMS will be the next wave to hit IT industries (IT guys know well abt this, next wave is Infra Maint Services)I'm guessing MBA (bank tech) is all related to IT services, n outsourcing,i hope will get more chances to get gud jobs in major companies. Ppl n experienced guys please help me out. I'm taking risk now, and also i want to achieve my dream, at the same time i should go in safe path. Is it worth?

Also if i have got chance to do MBA, i need to take own risk, like breaking out the BOND. It ll become a big problem in my future if i'm searching any jobs after completing MBA.. Because of NASSCOM abscond list..??????


work as systems engineer in Infrastructure Maintenance Services(IMS) dept.


Perfect match for you coz after MBA in banking technology you might get a job as data centre manager, information security manager, etc. probably similar job as your boss. Your little experience will help you in your placements at B school tremendously

next wave is Infra Maint Services. I'm taking risk now, and also i want to achieve my dream, at the same time i should go in safe path. Is it worth?


You have got a good opportunity to become expert in your field. Probably you'll get a job in similar profile right now but with managerial responsibilities. Its always worth for long term career path. But it would be very wrong if you dont like this field or vertical. Hence it is upto you to decide.

breaking out the BOND. It ll become a big problem in my future if i'm searching any jobs after completing MBA.. Because of NASSCOM abscond list..??????


Breaking a bond is hardly any issue. Do not worry abt this. There are people who break more bonds in their career than the no. of tiles broken by Bruce Lee in his entire career :wow:.

Nobody is a bonded labor.

Thank You very much Mr.Mahip. I hope u got my words correctly.

Before applying MBA (Bank Tech) I just took a general research on my own and thn i compared this MBA syllabus things with my present knowledge, which i have learnt from my present company experience (got it from my colleagues, my senior friends n also from my company training) and thn only I applied for the course(Here I can say i'm bit lucky, I dont want to be a software engineer, So i said OK for IMS side when my company HR called me to join in IMS dept. rather than software side, thn I got MBA (bank tech) course facility in my own place and also i got gud rank, So i'm considering now Everything is going on well)

Yeah! I hope IT will be back to normal before 1 or 2 years. Tats y I'm taking this small risk. Anyway i wont get any promotion or hike in my company for the next 12 months(due to recession). So probably after completing 2 more years in IT field wont give max. 3 or 3.5 lakhs p.a\-.

I guess if i got placed in some gud companies by carrying MBA degree certificate, I hope i will get more Pay than 3.5 Lakhs p.a. as well as i can see my name in Gud Position list. Is it correct? by considering all going gud in IT field.

Still i can say I'm going in Safe direction and its the perfect idea\guess for me. If IT wont come up in the next 2 years, surely Layoff will happen (I heard something today from my company internal employee, like before this September, one more Layoff\ will happen in major companies) So at that moment many of us will be screwed up. So skipping out of IT field and joining in this course wont make any problem\critical issue in my life.:cheerio:
