Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

AshMal, What’s your current profile like and what type of change (in profile) are you looking for? That’s an important factor to consider when recommending a future course of action. I am going to take a risk and guess - if you are planning on moving to a more quant/research-heavy role (investment/e...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Irshadkhan, An MBA from a decent school is a significant investment of time, effort and money. Considering your specific situation, you have only 2 years of experience (hence time is on your side) and are currently looking for employment. I think you should first try to land yourself a good job, wor...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Bonny, My best guess is at 30, you are no longer in the usual 2-year full-time (Indian) MBA bucket, and also not quite fully in the 1-year PGPX-type bucket. Considering all the usual factors - your experience (which is substantial), foregone salary, investment (time, money, effort), etc. - a 1-year ...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Celebro, How do you think an MBA is going to help your case? Your thought process on pursuing a PMP is clear - a PM role is surely a step up, and a PMP makes sense. It is also a comparatively low cost and low effort/time investment option. Note that an MBA will possibly set you back a substantial am...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Iamdetermined, An MBA is the right option to consider if you would like to execute a career change. Having said that, though your new career path might be in a high-growth area/domain, if it happens to be very different from your pre-MBA career path, you might end up at a position/designation a rung...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Praveengupta, Given that you have 14 years of experience, if you need a little push to get to where you want to be in your professional life, PGPMAX-type programs are the right ones to consider. If you have already considered the usual investments - time, cost and effort - asked yourself the right q...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Pranavi ranga, I don’t have enough info on those two programs to be able to comment or offer advice. Assuming other factors (financial aid, etc.) being equal/comparable, if I were you, I’d look at recruitment/employment figures, post-MBA salaries, and things of that sort, and then take a call. -Amit.

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Kritin, In what you have written, you seem to have all the ingredients to make a nice story - IIT, IT consulting, an NGO, a startup, Google, and a long-term goal of returning to the music domain (in what capacity/role??). You also have a GMAT score ready for submission. If I were you, I’d give it a ...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Tjsk,

My knowledge of online MBA programs is limited. What I do know though is XLRI has some online courses/options that are worth considering. Sameer and team should be able to provide more advice.

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Hrmanager, After gaining 10 years of HR experience, I am wondering if an MBA in HR is even needed, or if it is worth it. Given that you have substantial relevant work experience, why do you feel you need an HR MBA? No matter what type of program you choose - part or full-time - it’s going to need a ...
