Interesting question asked. But before I answer your query, would like to know how did you shortlist these 2 options. As both require different abilities or skills.
What is your basic qualification?. Reason I am asking is because to work as a fashion marketing personnel, you need to have basic knowledge in fashion. As it is a marketing job, you need to be also aware of the latest trend and what the customer needs. Only then can you market the product. At the sametime you need to learn the art of convincing people, good communication skills, skills in advertising
With twelve years of strong experience in project management sales and marketing, you can climb up the management ladder.
This you can do either by searching for a job switch or if possible in your current organisation by speaking to your current managers and above.
If you have done an MBA already previously, then you will have to look for management cadre opportunities yourself based on your experience and what you can give to the organisation and contribute to its growth.
If not, it is recommended that you take up a General Management course from a reputed BSchool through part

You indeed would get one proper job for you. There are many such courses and diplomas at the Post Graduation level.

Please note as a marketing graduate, you would start at the base itself. Mainly sales is the job offered to a management graduate.
As such I would suggest, shortlist few industries which you would like to join and make a career in. It can be any industry from banking to retail to pharma etc. But please note, as such whichever industry you choose and since you would be in the marketing position which is the base of any industry. Later on shifting to another industry would mean starting from scratch. So be careful in choosing.
At the moment, know your strength and potential
Thanks for getting back to me with more clarification.
Now that you are a Sr. Manager, with 11 years of work experience, definitely you can scale up to AVP/VP level. However as I see, to be promoted to AVP/VP level, you are still short of a little more years of experience (may be of four years more).
AVP/VP is a level up from the Sr. Manager and is more into strategy, planning, employee engagement, productivity, ROIs, KPI/KPA and financial resourcing. I think that again an Executive MBA would not help. Now what is more important is to keep gaining experience and keep looking out
No need of getting confused. A time comes when you have to settle down in one of the areas which according to you and your experience are good to settle and which would offer a long term satisfaction in terms of salary and internal growth. You cannot work with every company and keep moving all the time.
Five years experience and an MBA qualification is enough to keep progressing. You should focus on performing the best on the job and move upwards based on that. No other academic course is required.
Sales and Marketing is a growing domain with lot of scope for improvement, i
I would in turn ask you, what are your five reason for going to an MBA. I can give you many reasons, but are you going to choose what you like in those and think they are right?
I would suggest that think for yourself and dont decide on the basis of what others say. Everybody's reason for choosing an MBA is different and it should be different and not generic.
Some reason as listed already, however do not choose them for yourself. Think for yourself and the need for yourself about MBA.
Nine years of experience is a very handsome and valuable experience I would say. Why are you thinking of changing the sector altogether when you have acquired a sizeable years of experience which can help you climb the management levels in organisations. Experience is what matters and is what will give you returns.
Going to another sector without any background will be like working like a fresher. Would you afford to do that? Also you current salary will not remain the same when you change sector. Is this fine for you? You will be required to learn everything new. Are you ready
As you have completed your MBA, engineering, and also have an experience of working in a company, you must go for higher studies in digital marketing which is actually quite a lot in demand, and you will enjoy doing it as you are having its base knowledge.

You have very diverse expectations and whether they are viable for you can be told by you only. To me, going to Canada or USA for working in the field of digital marketing or branding is fine. But here I would like to ask you whether have you really gained that much of competence in digital marketing or branding in just three years?
You have worked in a startup which is a good learning experience and then entered into family business (apparently for no logical reason) and now you are thinking high of going to foreign countries for career. This sounds very rosy, but it is not.

Simply put, I would say that your career choice should depend on your deep hearted inclination, interest and you should have the aptitude to match it. Aptitude plus interest will make you successful in career.
You can choose career option based on your strength in subjects at the latest education level i.e. 10th/12/th/graduation. Can you please tell me what education have you taken till now?

Have you completed Engineering or you are about to complete engineering? If you can answer this, then it will be clear for me to advice you.
However since you are saying that engineering is not interesting to you and you wish to choose marketing as your career, I would like to ask that is Marketing your final decision? What if after choosing Marketing later you find that this is also not interesting to you? How did you reach a decision of choosing Marketing?
Changing the career stream at the right time is good however it is risky if not chosen carefully.
With the right qualification in the beginning of your career, you can surely become a Sales Manager later in your career as you get experience.
To begin with, an MBA Marketing from a reputed and top ranked Institute is a must for hoping for a good company and a good salary. In Marketing, it is important to gain work experience since experience in marketing and sales is a key to the post of Manager.
Post graduation in marketing communications is a good career option having good scope and growth. You seem to ask that question very late after completing a PG course and still you are not sure that what good you are at.
I feel, you should now focus on getting a job if you are not working and start gaining work experience as early as possible.
However for your satisfaction, taking the Ideal Career Test is best suggested. The Ideal Career Test is a very holistic psychometric test which suggests you your ideal career option based on your aptitude, emotional quotient, interests, in
