Hi There,

Firstly after reading your query and the explanation with it, I now doubt, whether I really need to answer your question.

As you have rightly said, getting a job these days is difficult, and leaving a secured job, for pursuing higher studies can be thought of only if,

  • You have got admission in premier institutes.
  • Guaranteed Placements
    Since you have mentioned, that the Institute into which you have secured admission is not consistent in their placement records, it is a matter of chance that you have to take. If you are lucky, and get placed great or else the struggle to find a job would be an issue.

So the best would be to opt for a correspondence MBA, so that whatever you learn, you get a practical experience too being in the job market.

Hope I have been able to address your issue.

Wish you good luck...........

Dear Aspirant,

Please do not think that MBA is the only option in life which needs to be done by everyone.

Considering your background of Computer Science and experience, I would suggest to keep MBA as a second option. The first option I would suggest is Project Management. You should go for PMP Certification while working. www.pmi.org.in Project Management is one area where you can see good growth in the IT sector and its almost mandatory to be a PMP in IT sector for sustained growth.

MBA if chosen, then it should be done in General Management and not in Finance or HR or Marketing. Since these will not help in your technical role. If you are planning to learn finance, then a PG Diploma is enough which should be done part time or correspondence. Currently admissions for Symbiosis Distance Learning are open. www.scdl.net.

Best wishes

Thanks for posting your query in careerguide.com

Well, considering your scenario, let me help you take appropriate career decision.
My key query is that you need suggestion whether you should take full-time course for MBA or choose to do MBA from distance education.

I believe doing MBA from distance education is not bad as you are already working. Distance education is the best option for working professionals who want to add applied knowledge and skills.

Leaving good job to pursue MBA from ordinary college is not a good idea. If you get admission into reputed institute with good placement, then only think of pursuing MBA through regular course.

Before you take decision I would suggest you to answer few reflective questions.

You said, you are working in IT MNC since last two years. What made you think to do MBA specifically?
MBA does not gaurentee job. But if you have interest in learning management and work in management field then MBA is good choice.

IT industry too has scope. Can't you do masters in the subject relevant to IT or any subject that can enhance your present job? There are good courses in computer science.

Hope I have answered your query.

Best Wishes for Your Career!

Thans alot Sir for you valuable input.

Why i want to do MBA ? Personally i believe in my skills. But, Market is flooded with MBAs and Engineers, so i don't want to be left behind when i get chance to step-up in career in future just because my other colleague is Engineer/MBA.

Masters in IT ? Here too i will need your guidance on which course(MCA, MCM, PGDMIT etc). Hope correspondence is good here.
