I think your story is compelling, if worded right. I'm not entirely understanding your goal here. Is your company sponsoring you for an MBA? Is that why you want to get the company out of debt post-MBA? It's strange to me that that's your goal unless the company's sponsoring. Where are you looking to go to school? What range of schools are you targeting? is it top schools or bust mentality? I'm guessing your target is to head back to India after MBA and if not, please correct me.
First off thanks for the quick reply.
i can understand why the goal question comes up. a few weeks ago i was in the doldrums with this same problem. i had no fixed goals due to a lack of knowledge about the kind of careers i'd be looking at. I dont wanna go into i banking or MC for that matter. general managment appealed to me bacause it would more or less cover all the topics that i need to know to get a better understanding of how a bussiness works in a more wholistic sense. Also I would like to be associated with an energy company(oil and gas if you wanna be more specific), because thats where my core competence lies, i understand the workings so i would contribute more. My long term goal would be to lead such a company.
No, the company isnt sponsering me. I joind this company right outta school when it was obscenely profitible and have seen it decline ever since due to some very bad decisions. if 10 years down the line i can say that i contributed to the turn around then ill be able to proudly say that i achieved something of note. That is a project i would definitely like to be associated with.
Also some help with refining my goals(if they sound too vague) would be greatly appreciated.
The kinda schools im looking at:
If there is one thing that i'v learned in the last 4 years is that the brand matters. it opens doors which normals would be locked under similar circumstances. So yes im looking at top tier schools but my question was what kinda schools would i have a realistic chance of getting accepted at? I have no concrete preference country wise, the school/program has to be good. And i would be comfortable working in any country, i have no preferences their either.
again thanks for the repliy,i appreciate it.
