I want to do mba with marketing and sales and I am not talkative so it will be beneficial for me.
MBA ( Marketing ) is good to do.
It is myth that in the field of marketing the person should be talkative you can do MBA in Marketing.
You say that you are not talkative and yet you are interested in marketing and sales field. My Dear, you can become talkative. Talkativeness can be learnt, only thin you require to do is open up your mind, personality and be confident. Thats it!
If you are really interested in Marketing and Sales which definitely involves speaking, communicating, talking on phone or email or personal visits, then you should go ahead and do an MBA in Marketing and Sales. In fact, while you do your MBA, the environment, your classmates, assignments, field visits, projects, will actually make you talk naturally more and more and you will forget that you are non talkative person. Even if you go to any other field other than Marketing and Sales, being a little outspoken and extrovert helps.
However here I would really suggest you to undergo a Psychometric Assessment Test from CareerGuide.com. May be you can under go Stream Selector Assessment. This test will help you to also know what are the other career options which are suited to you other than Marketing and Sales and who knows you may like those career option and decide to do one of them?
My Dear, it is best to understand first what you are best at, what are your strengths, weaknesses, interests, passion, ability, competence, communication skills, soft skills, personality, etc. All these aspects are very very important before making a career choice, since always remember that if you choose a career option which is not compatible with your strengths, passion, interests, personality then it will land you in grave problem and which will then make you frustrated, depressed and may be you will not be able to come back or will have to entirely leave the career path and choose a different career path altogether which will consume immense time and wastage of money and energy.
You say that you are not a talkative person, which means may be, there may be another career path which may be suited best to you and your personality.
However as I said already, MBA Marketing and Sales through a very good and reputed Institute will make you talkative, extrovert and confident personality and you get successful in the field through experience and skills.
This is a very common myth that marketing and sales job needs a person to be talkative. Frankly speaking, being talkative is not an essential criteria in any business function but being interactive is very essential in every business function. If you are talkative, you are ruining your business and this is a hard truth. However if you are interactive you are saving your business from loss.I believe you get to understand this difference.
To be a corporate professional and work in any area of the business be it human resources, sales, marketing, strategy, customer management or project management, the only quality that will keep you on your foot and keep you stable is the 'interactiveness'. You dont have to be talkative at all. Imagine what happens when you are a talkative person? You tend to speak everything and anything right? Do you think your client will have time to listen to all your talks? Definitely no. They will give you an appointment within a speculated time frame and you should speak to the point and close the deal within the time. If you are talkative, then it means you are using a free talk style and this way you are never going to be on your point during the deal time.
