Hi. I'd like and evaluation of my profile.
I have 8 years experience in telecom. I have worked in technical telecom domain for 5 years. The next 2.5 years in telecom presales / marketing. And now I am working in technical domain as a team lead.
I want to go for higher studies and to change my domain.
Would technology management or a marketing mba fit my profile?
Or should I go for an MS ?
Thanks

Well, what diploma you should go for, depends upon your goals. What do you want to do afterwards? What industry would you work in? what sort of firm? in what position??? Really, your professional education should be preparing you for your professional goals, so if you know what you want it helps greatly.

Thanks for the reply. I want to move out of core technical to management field. Hence the query of technology management. And with technology management I will also have a chance to move to IT domain.
But I have a previous experience in presales field hence the query of marketing domain.
Which is why I want to know which is a better fit for my profile as above all my requirement is to move out of telecom domain and either of the above fields would help me in this.
My end goal is to work in companies like Google / Microsoft in management role.
Hope this clarifies my query?

Thanks man. That does clarify things quite a bit.

For your type of goals, I think you can actually go for either degree. If you look at mid-management positions, you will find people from MBAs and MSes in these positions. So really, either could work for you. An MS will likely keep your future more locked in on the technical side (although you can advance a lot) an MBA will likely move you over more to general management stuff (but still within tech). It could of course go either way, depending on the circumstances, but basically, this is the skillset you would be training for in one versus the other. It is a bit easier to figure out if you know EXACTLY what position you are aiming for (and here I mean title and department) because then you can look at people in similar positions, and see what they have on their resume. So for which diploma, it's a bit of a tossup depending on how specific you are getting for your goals. The next question is what you really want to learn??? Are you still interesting in deepening your tech knowledge? Or would you rather leave that be in order to develop on something else?
