Project Analyst or Team Leader Operations ? [#permalink] New post 12 Jul 2013, 10:17
Hi

I am an Indian working as an IT System Analyst with 4 yrs of work ex .
I have two job offers with me , one as a Project Analyst and the other as Team Leader Operations .

The Project Analyst will work in the Project Management dept of the IT division and work along the Project Manager in implementing the IT projects . These projects will follow the waterfall model of SDLC .

The Team Leader Operations will lead a small team which will work extensively on the User Acceptance Testing of Software Implementations .

The Project Analyst will not lead a team , but will have much more exposure in Managing the projects from the initiating to closing phase , while the Team Leader operations will lead a team but will only work in Quality and the project closing sections .

Now i am confused , and not sure which one to join .

I intend to do my MBA in General Management and Strategy . I am not sure which profile will help me out more . Can anyone help me out on this ... ?

Thanks!

In my experience, the admissions committee will always be more impressed with being appointed to a leadership position vs. a project management position. Having direct reports and being in charge of even a small team will demonstrate you have the core competencies to become a business leader. When others identify this trait in you and you are promoted at work, it goes a long way with the adcoms. Having said that, I have no idea how much either position will help position you better for a strategy job post MBA. Even if the adcom will like one experience more than the other, it is always best to go with the job about which you are most passionate and can bolster your foundation for your future career to build upon.
