Dear aspirant

Congratulations on your idea to do an MBA after a few years work experience. Lots of students in india do an mba as a fresher and later struggle to find a job post mba completion. In fact if you have some years of work experience then you can stand well after an MBA degree. Companies will prefer resumes with prior work experience than students who are only freshers and this way you stand high with your 28 months work experience this is equivalent to two and a half years of work experience. You have two options for the MBA degree.

One you can do a full time mba: You can do a full time MBA if you would like. This means you have to quit your current work and join a mba college to study for two years full time. If you want to be admitted in a reputed b school then you need to write CAT/ GMAT/ MAT/ XAT exams. Depending on the school you want to study you have to write the competitive exams. For example, CAT is required for all the IIM and the IIT and Gmat is required by the Indian school of business in hyderabad and mat is required by otehr private universities and xat is required by xaviers management school. You should take some good time to practice for these competitive exams in order to achieve very high score and settle in a top ranked business school.

Second you can do a part time executive mba: If you dont want to quit work and study then you can do the part time general mba or executive MBA. Executive MBA means you will attend weekend classes and your full time wont be affected. The good news for executive MBA people is mostly your company themselves will sponsor your MBA. So you dont have to pay the fees and most importantly the company will definitely promote you to a higher position after you complete the MBA. So check with your company if they do any employee learning sponsorship program. In this case you can do the MBA only with the universities they have tie-ups with.

Finally i would suggest you do an executive mba program instead of quitting your regular work and joining a full time school. This way you can be more successful at job and salary rise too. All the best.

Hello, good to hear on your interest in pursuing an MBA. Studying this professional degree is highly valuable especially when you have some considerable work exp of more than two years. In your case, you have build up around 28 months work exp, which is reasonably very good for sending in an MBA application. I would also like to inform you that, your decision of studying the MBA degree post few years work exp will be going to definitely rewarding. Companies will always prefer to recruit students with MBA and a minimum of two year prior work experience. The second advantage is with power of salary negotiation. With the MBA, usually you can expect for upto 30-50% salary hike from your previously drawn salary. The third main advantage of doing the MBA after work exp is gaining indepth theoretical knowledge, by relating to your already accumulated practical knowledge. So with these I would definitely say, MBA is right for your profile. But you cant just go ahead with this idea right away. We need to essentially test if doing the MBA will really suit your personality and help you achieve your career goals. You can understand the decision better by doing the Psychometric testing from this website. This test will analyse your personality, aptitude for MBA and determine whether or not you will achieve success with your MBA degree.

General MBA/ Executive MBA:I would advice doing the general MBA rather than the executive MBA. General MBA is more appropriate for students with less than three - five years of work experience where as the executive MBA is more valid for working professionals with more than three years of work exp and also to those who really cant quit full time work and spend two years back in college life. In my strong opinion, I would advice you to study the regular general MBA at a top tier business school in India. In case, you want to do a part time MBA then an executive MBA is advisable where you dont have to quit work but study concurrently.

MBA school in Delhi:The only business school within Delhi region which is a leading institution is the Faculty of management studies known as the FMS, of the Uni of Delhi. The fee is usually said to be relatively very low here not more than 20000 INR per year. It is one of those reputed schools with low tuition fee and the post MBA placements are also appreciating. However I would sincerely recommend you to apply for the other prestigious business schools across India and not being restricted only with Delhi region. Studying at the esteemed business schools will be a rewarding exp which you can vouch for all your life.

Other business schools:You can apply for the following schools which are leading institutions in India.IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, ISB Hyderabad, IIM Calcutta, IIT Kharagpur Vinod Gupta school of management, IIM Lucknow, IIT Delhi, IIT Roorkee, IIM Indore, Symbiosis, SP Jain institute of management, XLRI, FMS Delhi, IMT Ghaziabad.

Admission tests: You are required to sit for the following competitive entrance exams for the respective schools.
All the IIM's" CAT
All the IIT's: CAT/ GATE
ISB Hyderabad: GRE/ GMAT
Rest of the schools: Usually accepts CAT or administers their own test

Finally, doing the regular full time MBA is advisable as you have less than five years of exp. However if you can wait to study MBA, then buid up five years total work exp and enroll in a part time executive MBA. Hope this helps. My best wishes to you.
