Sir/ma'm

I am from India, WE:28 mnths ;
As we know most of the buisness schools give lot of emphasize on Work experience ; may be its absurd to ask ,but my question to you is 'can we change our domain' or it remains the same when we join buisness school ,i mean as i am from IT industry so can i opt for 'Finance' stream and would secure a job in some non IT industry ,if yes then why is domain experience matters

Thank you in advance

1) You can change your intended career path any number of times.
2) Domain experience helps you display "demonstrable, measurable achievements", and those employee qualities which make you "employable" post-MBA, an important factor for each school

Hope that helps

Your work experience is the container, not the end-all-be-all. It's the means for which you can show them your leadership qualities your problem solving skills your teamwork abilities. It's not like they really care about what you do - its what you've done and how it points to the specific qualities that they're looking for. They're looking for people who take the initiative and solve problems and play well with others. And your work is one way to show that, however there are others as well Community Services a big one. Also I would not necessarily say that you could so easily switch from one industry and function to a totally separate industry and function. And I would really not advise that in your narrative either. It's called connecting dots..constructing a narrative you have greater chances of acceptance if you were to show interest in getting into Finance but staying within the IT industry. Otherwise you really don't have any value to offer your next employer. If you know the industry they might be willing to take a gamble on you with the function. Of course people change both of those all the time but you look like a riskier proposition for career services.

Yes you can, n number of times, at any point of time. Experience is just to show your capability to work as a team and individuality.

Best if you also have two+ years with a well known employer first, or it just looks like you couldn't find a job. Better as a side thing initially. If VC backed, good. If it's on the same income level as a lemonade stand, not good.
