I am currently working in an insurance company as an admin manager pursuing my S.Y.B.A I want to go ahead in insurance and opt it as my career I wanted to ask you what is the procedure of applying for part time mba? will I have to give entrance exam? and which field shall I do my mba in?
Hello My Dear Career Aspirant,
Part time MBA course is available to only thos candidates who have post graduate qualification of three to five years in the relevant industry. Since you are not a graduate still, according to me you will have to gather minimum three years of experience after your graduation and then only you will be able to apply for part time MBA.

Firstly, good that you are managing both work and study.
Here, p[lease note that, do not get swayed with the work environment, because for any higher studies, whether MBA or any certificate or a Post graduate degree, you will need a minimum of 60% or a first class.So do work but at the same time, see that studies are not affected.
As rightly said by the previous counselors, to pursue a Part-time MBA, you need a minimum of 3 years work experience, which you already have, but you need a masters degree too.
As far as choosing a specialization is concerned, since you have mentioned, you wish to continue in the Insurance sector, but which department you would like to continue is important.As an Admin head, which is your current designation, then HR would be advisable. In-case, if you wish to sell the policy to people, then apart from Financial knowledge, you would also need good marketing skills,Marketing skills can be developed over the period of work, but financial knowledge and reading of financial markets, is where financial terminology needs to be mastered.In that case an MBA in Finance can be helpful.
An MBA in either Finance, Marketing or HR, makes you applicable to work in any industry. You are not restricted to any particular Industry as such.
Though these are the age old specializations, I would also like you to expand your horizons and look at different specializations available. As getting jobs, is easier in the different specialization rather than the old customized ones.So during your break time, I would like you to do a,little research on the other specializations available mainly:
As far as pursuing MBA is concerned, after Graduation, you would have to appear for an Entrance exam either All India level ( CAT) or state wise ( CET, SAT), or private Institutes ( XLRI , NMAT) depending on your interest. After that there would be a Personal Interview as well as Group Discussion rounds.
Hope this answers your query.
Wish you all the very best.........
