Hi there,
I am an MBA graduate from one of the top 15 institutes in India (an IIM). I have one year experience in telecom sales and marketing. Currently I am working for an Edtech Start up. I have volunteered in my college (I have a finance UG degree from Delhi University). During my MBA, we didnt get a lot of good opportunities in Consumer Behaviour or HRM. I got 710 in gmat and my gpa is 65%.
(undergrad GPA) which is 3/4. I really want to shift my career since having Telecom Sales in your resume does not leave you with many opportunities!!
HRM masters from Cornell and Purdue are really good, do you think I have a shot with my kind of profile? or perhaps I should look at Ms in Marketing (from LSE) or masters in consumer behaviour (NYU, European Institutes) Please guide!! :angel:

why do you need another degree in the first place? Human resources management has lower entry barriers, you can find yourself a job without another degree

Hey thanks for responding.

So the college I went to, because of that and also with my experience in telecom, I am not able to get the kind of roles i want. I want to be market research (or consumer psychology) and I think having a master's from a reputed institute will help me get a more specific role not just sales. I want to want hard and then apply for phd later when I have gained experience!
