Hello My Dear Career Aspirant,


Glad to see you working and gaining work experience immeidately after your engineering graduation. Very happy to see you aim for the level of Vice President or CIO/CTO/CEO.

You being a technical person, I would first suggest you to gain work experience of atleast 20 years in your domain area. You may swtich jobs on promotion, however just remember that for becoming a VP or CTO, etc what is more important is job profile and the exposure you get in the job. Its not the salary which determines who is successful or not successful.

While gaining work experience, doing an MBA would be the best. However currently you only have one year of work experience and mostly part time MBA programmes eligibility is more than three years. So this means that you still have to gain two more years of work experience.

According to me and the industry experience, all the VPs, CTO, CEO of successful and famous companies are of age above 40 years.

If you have the willingess and passion, you yourself can become an entrepreneur and manage the company by being the CEO of your own company rather than serving other companies as CEO. However this would require lot of other things in terms of finance, family support and product competitiveness.

If you can afford and your family gives you persmission, I would also suggest you to think for a full time MBA from top 10 BSchools by leaving the current job. in MBA you can specialise in Operation, Systems, International Business. You can also think for MBA in Family Business which will give you insights of running your own business.

All the Best and keeping aiming high!
