Domain Change: S/W engg to Finance.. which MBA program? [#permalink] New post 06 Jun 2012, 02:33
HI,

I wrote GMAT 2weeks back and got a 700(Q-51,V-31), not that good a score but am kind of satisfied!
I have 4yrs of exp in IT industry as a software engineer and I want to change my domain to Finance!
I want to know which MBA program should i get enrolled to? 2yr/1yr/Executive MBA/ MS in Finance?
I was always aiming for a 1yr MBA in ISB or a 1yr/Executive MBA abroad. But my question is is it possible to change domain by doing just 1yr of MBA? And do people really get job in Finance domain just by doing 1yr MBA especially when they don't have any previous experience in Fianance?
Also, if i go for 2yr MBA/ MS in Finance abroad then is it worth the money? And is it possible to change domain then?
Thanks!

1 year MBA won't do the trick for career changers... also the ROI depends on the reputation of the college you get into
