Technology vs Management C vs Finance, career options [#permalink] New post 30 Apr 2010, 01:58
Looking for suggestions

Brief:
Good Experience in IT, Worked with Big Clients F50
Good Experience in Engineering, Worked on Big Projects F500
No experience in Finance, Consulting but feel(everybody raves) its the holy grail for a high pay check.
Now in 20-30. I see myself in a respectable, commanding position when i hit 30. I dont like selling peanuts for earning 100K.

What should i undertake out of the two

a MBA in Technology Management, or a MBA with core subjects in which both Management Consultancy, Finance subject are in the curricullum so that i might end up as an analyst at an IB or M/B/B pushing pencils.


Detail

I hold really good experience handling big projects in Technology for major clients.

I work on Data Management and provide Business Intelligence for F50 clients like Banks, Automotive Industries. I did my Masters with First Grade in IT.

However i find myself bummed by Technology as i have this fear that i might be unable to realise my potential and be limited to a dusty office where the CEO dosent even care i exist or i might end up being a total nerd when i like to play football.

i dont know if Technology Management is really boring or intresting, looking for suggestions.

Thanks.

Hi BlueRobin,

You have an impressive profile.

You would be best fit for product management role in IT/Technology companies and would be best if you build your essays around that. That would sound your essays more convincing. However you are also good fit for consulting assignement (highly fit for IT consulting in Deloitte) as you need to have strong analytical and communication skills. These are my two cents. Please explore this club and you would get to know more as I am doing now.
