I am struggling with the short term goal question. Everyday I wake up and think and fail to get an answer. Why I fail to get an answer is because of the following,
I will be applying to B-Schools in England where the market is experience driven, I have 5 years of experience currently.
I am a Business Analyst with the world's no.1 data provider company, Thomson Reuters.
I know my road map to the future, I was and am in the Markets/Finance vertical of Thomson Reuters. I am currently in the IT department and want to move into finance. I know my long term goal, project management, but fail to identify what I want to do post my MBA.
After deep thinking and some help by Google, I have a few options in my list, one is becoming a research analyst after doing an MBA in Finance. But with 5 years of experience, would I be able to get into a management role post my MBA? Is that expecting too much or being a research analyst is safe and later work towards PM.
Or, MBA in strategy, but I am not sure what comes up post an MBA. A management trainee job or ??
Please help me here as its really bothering me.
