Career options for 11+ yrs experience  [#permalink]

Hi all

I have registered recently and have a query for the experts in the group.

I am already an MBA from one of the top 10 b-schools in India. I have 11+ years of experience mainly into consulting, shared service/captive and IT companies. In search of an excellent role with good career trajectory, I have changed quite a few jobs and I now find myself in a mess with limited growth and career options.

I have a mix of IT (core development) + limited front-end consulting + KPO experience. I now think that I need course correction and hence interested to know if I should go for a second MBA?

Just to add, I am already at a decent packaage and don't think that second MBA from IIMs or ISB is going to add any additional value (considering my b-school is already at par).

My plan is to do 1 year MBA from US/UK/SG so that I can get foreign placement and necessary course correction along with decent salary to pay off my loans, etc.

Do you have any suggestions? I would love to hear from you..

Many thanks

Since you already have an MBA it will be a bit tougher because many programs will really need to feel giving you a spot in their class for a second MBA over someone for their first MBA. Generally. your rationale will have to be pretty strong here. There are only a few top US MBA 1YR programs that would provide the ROI you are looking for if they were willing to accept you with already having an MBA so I would target non-US programs and research if there are any restrictions for second MBA candidates

try working and get practical experience. you already have all basic knowledge you might be needed, I don't think you really need one more MBA

There are two situations (according to me) in which you should ideally pursue the second MBA:
1. You are not able to move up in your current role.
2. You want to explore something completely new from whatever you are doing currently

I understand for you, the second option is more appropriate.
So, i would suggest go for it.

All the best.

I think you need more practical experience. You should get some practical knowledge to gain self confidence. I know Asian people always think of a outside degree to value their career. I am not totally agree with this. If you have the capability then you have lots of option doing something in your own country. Just believe you can. A can do attitude can take you there that you never imagined.
