New post 29 Jan 2017, 04:06
Hello,

I'm from defence background with nearly 10 years of experience (by end 2018). I am looking for MBA in the year 2019, preferably Executive. To be precise, I have completed Bachelor of Engineering (Elec & Telecomm) and MTech (Aerospace). I am from naval aviation background, an aviation engineer. I have experience from field operations, projects, HR management like most of defence people have.
Personally, I wish to enter into strategic/planning management. I would love to work in defence aerospace private sector.

Can you suggest me right path, some MBA program that will help me build on my experience, open opportunities into defence aerospace or program that suits my background ?

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out to us. Before we get into specifics such as school selection, let's make sure we pick the right type of program. You mention the desire to get an EMBA - what's the motivation behind that? What are your goals upon graduation? It sounds like you're seeking to make a leap from an aviation engineer to strategic planning. Are you looking to change firms? How about industries? If you're comfortable switching roles within the same company, an EMBA may make sense, but you would really need to gain internal support from management before you embark upon this journey. Most of the students at top EMBA programs are sponsored from their employer as well. If you're relying on an EMBA to be your ticket to justify a move, it may not pan out the way you envision. If you think gaining this support will be difficult ahead of time, you may want to consider top PT-MBA programs where you can take part in on campus recruiting. This will open doors to other companies who are looking for experienced professionals.

Take a moment to review our point of view on the different types of programs. Then we can dive into which schools make the most sense for you.

i'm looking for career switch from military to civil as my term is ending with military. While switching, i wish to make career in strategic planning... industry - defence aerospace...Motivation behind EMBA is getting an opportunity to connect with business world, people etc so that i can make an entry into whatever field i wish... if EMBA may not pan out the way i think then what are other choices do i have ? If yes, then how do i go about it ?

If you're interested in maintaining a job while getting your MBA, I'd consider a part-time program such as these.

If you don't have a full-time job now, you could try applying directly to a full-time program. The type of program will depend on your GMAT, UG GPA, and other stats including your leadership capacity, work experience, and community involvement.
