Hey Guys,

Please suggest college to choose. I have got admit from both the colleges and now quite confused which college to go for. I have got my own pros and cons, but would be good to get some more inputs from you guys.

How much experience do you have what is your current role and post mba goal. That much is needed to help you make your decision. Otherwise for a person with 2 year work ex ISB would be attractive and IIM C for 8 years work ex person. Overall there is no definite answer .

Hi,

I have got 67 months of experience and I am into Risk Engineering profile in an Insurance company. My profile is quite niche and not many company does this kind of work. Post MBA, I am looking to work in consulting role in an insurance domain or in insurance analytics.

Ok. Risk engineering in India is not done by many companies. There are only few such as AIG, torus insurance etc. I am not from the field but one of my close friend is so I understand your field a bit.
Anyways atleast you have your goals clear. I see ISB as the good fit as your work ex is just under 6. ISB is a fantastic b school , just the number of students in a cohort worries me. Batch of 900 would have lot of competition for the placement , irrespective of the claims of the career center. Also you get a training certificate from isb hence that is a hindrance for phd from any IIM or outside India, if your plan changes in future.
My advise would be to talk to isb and iim c alumni , who are in your target fields. They would give you a better feedbac about the course.
Also look at the option of product management in the insurance domain. That would open lot more opportunities for you. Good luck.

Hi VPGMAT,

Thank you for your inputs. I am definitely concerned about 900 batch size where IIMC has a batch size of only 70. Since my profile is very niche, I guess ISB would provide me more opportunities to make a career switch. I have been trying to reach to students, alums, and even professor to get a good picture. I had no idea about Product Management in Insurance. I thought it is there for people from IT/Software background. But, I would definitely look into this role also. Anyways, I am really thanksful for your inputs.

Product management doesn't require IT knowledge but is usually preferred because of the nature of the product.
I know people who are into product management but only have MBA degree and are doing pretty well.

If you think my answered helped you, press the kudos. That is the norm here at gmatclub
