Hey Vimal,

Good to hear from you dude.

I got a few questions for you:
1. Can you elaborate a bit about your work experience? What you are in charge of? What your greatest achievements are? Who you lead?
2. Why EMBA and not regular MBA?
3. Are you being sponsored by your firm for an MBA?

If you can elaborate a wee bit, I can better advise you,

Best,
JF

Hi Jon,

Thanks for the reply.

Here is the answer to your questions.
1. Can you elaborate a bit about your work experience? What you are in charge of? What your greatest achievements are? Who you lead?
Ans: I am part of a larger team/Project which delivers software to a Japanese client. This team is divided into 2 big categories software development and software testing. I the lead of software testing sub team, in which I lead 5-6 persons. Before Coming to testing side of the team I was part of the software development team and was posted in Japan for 15 monts.

2. Why EMBA and not regular MBA?
Ans: I will be very frank here. I decided to go for an MBA when I realized that there is lot of crowd at the level and post at which I am working. I want to separate myself from the crowd. The other reason and in fact the bigger one at that is that I wanted to multiply my earning potential. I have been working with the same company with the last 5 years and even if I switch jobs, I will probably get 40-50% hike but my salary will be in the same bracket as what an engineer gets. It will never reach to what a manager gets. So If I invest 1 or 2 years of my life in pursuing MBA, it will probably fulfill my twin goals of separating myself from the crowd and multiplying my earning potential.

As far as question of doing an executive MBA is concerned against doing Full Time MBA, I am still in the research phase. I don't know which one will be better for me. I asked about EMBA because, I thought I will have to invest only one year of my life and can start earning again as soon as possible. However, if you suggest that going for and EMBA will not fulfill my above mentioned twin goals, please suggest me what to do. I am open to going for Full Time MBA, if it will fulfill goals better. I now also realize that that there are several 1 year full time MBA programs. Please me on them also.


3. Are you being sponsored by your firm for an MBA?
Ans: NO as of now I am not sponsored my firm, as I haven't revealed my MBA dreams to my team or my firm yet. What do you suggest on this.

I would also request you that I am not firm on electing finance as my major. If you could suggest any better branch which is better suited to guys from IT background, I will be more than happy to accept it.

Could you please advice me on
1) How good a college is Nyenrode Business University.
2) Will doing 1 year full time Intentional MBA Program, suit me or my IT background.
3) Whats kind of jobs do Intentional MBA Program grads get?
4) How does and Intentional MBA Program fair against programs like product management, project management, program management, and IT consulting, business development, which are much closely related to IT.

Vimal,
Okay got it.

So let's get started. First of all, I think that if you want that position/salary job you are looking for at your age, then a regular MBA is more what you are looking for. An EMBA is usually designed for people who will continue to work while doing their MBA, and is for older candidates, often sponsored by their firms, or people with a lot more experience. And you seem like you fit preeeeetty well into a regular MBA.

I can understand your hesitations about being out of the work force for a long time, and you may want to look at one-year MBA programs in the US and Europe, which might fit you well.

To get to your questions:

1) This is the first I've heard of it (not a good sign)
2) Sure.
3) Lots. There's no clear answer here. You have to look in a specific industry in a specific school to get a reasonable answer.
4) Tons of folks from international MBAs come from and go to IT jobs. So you are good here.

Hope this helps!

JF
