    Which stream to opt in MBA if I have completed Graduation in Computer Science and now working as IT professional for the past 1 and half years? How to make a decision about specialization in MBA based on my strengths?

    Hello all,

    I have completed my graduation in computer science and working as IT professional for the past 1 1/2 year. Next year I am planning to do my MBA but I am confused about which stream to opt for. Based on the stream preference I need to apply to various B-schools. My preferences are IIM's, XLRI, FMS and other top grade schools.

    Below are my strengths and work preferences

    I have very good acads and am good at aptitude, reasoning and communication skills.
    given a choice I would prefer working alone than in a team.
    I would love to do a job that is creative and requires innovation
    I am very good at socializing. I love to inspire and lead people.
    When I do certain work, I love to see tangible results and be apreciated.
    I hate travelling.


    Based on the above, please suggest me an MBA stream.

    Finance and marketing look to be two good options for me, but i am not sure at all. Please provide your inputs

    Thanks a lot for your help and please do provide your suggestions...


    thanks,
    Ravi.

    hai,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    dear as you are a graduate choosing a job after your graduation is a very good decision,
    because after the job experience you can do the course intelligently , you will get more ideas too.
    there are so many specializations in MBA
    as you completed your computer science you need to go for
    human resource it will help you to manage highly technical people in IT companies, now a days it is a biggest challenge IN human resource .
    you can select the IIM,symbiosis, IGNOU etc because these are the top colleges.
    nothing to worry about your weakness you are going to satisfy completely after selecting this course ,
    all the best

    DEAR RAVI.
    GOOD TO SEE THAT YOU ARE SO MUCH WEEL EXPERIENCES AND PROFESSIONALISTIC PERSON. AS PER YOUR QUESTION YOU ARE SEEM TO BE VERY WELL INTERESTED IN MBA. THAT IS GOOD TO KNOW MY FRIEND. BUT LET ME TELL YOU THAT INSTEAD OF MBA I WOULD ADVICE YOU TO GO WITH THE POST GRADUATION IN THE SAME STREAM IN WHICH YOU GRADUATED FROM. WELL I KNOW THAT I AM SOMEWHAT GOING OUT OF YOUR QUERY BUT THIS I AM SAYING COZ OF A VALID REASON. I KNOW THAT MBA IS A VERY GOOD FIELD BUT YOU BEING A BSC. COMPUTER GRADUATED STUDENT MAY FIND SOME PROBLEM IN SWTTLING IN THE COMMERCE STREAM. AS YOU ARE HAVING QUITE A GOOD EXPERIENCE AS A IT PROFESSIONAL YOU SHOULD GO FOR THE POST GRADUATION IN SAME PATH AS THIS WILL LEAD TO A GREATER CAREER FOR YOU AHEAD AND SUCCESS TOO. YOU WILL GET HIGH PAID JOBS IN MSC. IT RATHER THAN THE MBA IT. THE JOBS IN MBA IT ARE MORE THAT OF MANAGERIAL TYPE LIKE THE AREA BUSINESS MANAGER, REGIONAL HEAD, ETC...BUT THE PAY SCALE IS NOT AS GOOD AS MSC. IT. I HAVE SEEN MANY OF MY FRIENDS WHO SWITCHED TO MBA AND LATER RUINED THEIR CAREER. ALTHOTGH YOUR CHOICE OF BUSINESS SCHOOLS IS GOOD ONE BUT THE PAY SCALE WILL NOT BE AS HIGH AS MSC.IT OR CSE. COMPANIES HIRE THOSE PROFESSIONALS WHO ARE SPECIALISED IN A PARTICULAR AREA AND THAT YOU GO AFTER YOUR POSTGRADUATION IN THE SAME PATH.. AND SINCE WOU HAUE A BRILLIENT TIME OF EXPERIENCE AS A IT PROFESSIONAL SO THAT LIKE ICING THE CAKE!
    THE VARIOUS POSTS THAT YOU GET AFTER MSC. IT ARE AS FOLLOWS:

    JAVA DEVELOPER: DEVELOP WIDE RANGE OF APPS BOTH ON SERVER AND PC.

    .NET DEVELOPER: MAINTAIN WEA BASED APPS AND WRITE AMD MAINTAIN PC.

    PROJECT MANAGER: LINKS THE IT TEAM AND THE KEY INDIVIDUALS OE AN IT PROJECT .

    DATA MODELLOR:CALLED AR AEROSPACE ENGINEERS. THEY DESIGN THE APP DATA FETCHING SYSTEM.

    SOFTWARE IMPLEMENTATION ANALYST: ENSURES THE LAUNCH AND DEPLOY OF AN APP ALONG WITH UPGRADE IS DONE CORRECTLY.

    DATABASE ADMINISTRATOR: INSTALL, SECURE, BACK UP AND TEST THE PRODUCTION DATABASES.

    IT SECURITY MANAGER: ENSURES NO HACK OR DATA THEFT.

    BUSINESS CONTINUITY MANAGER: HELP THE COMPANY HUMMING IN THE FAME OF CRIME, TERROR, NATURAL DISASTERS, COMPUTER OR HUMAN ERRORS.

    APPLICATION ARCHITECT: MAKE UP THE APP SKELETON AND MAKEOVER IN SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGIES.

    AND THERE ARE MANY MORE LIKE RFID SYSTEMS ENGINEER, HEAD IT HR, BUSINESS RELATION MANAGER, ENTERPRISE ARCHITECT, WINDO ADMIN, PROGRA MANAGER, ETC... THE INITIAL PAYSCALE HERE ITSELF IS AROUND 35000+

    SO JUST THINK IT OVER ONCE AGAIN AND THEN DECIDE OTHERWISE MBA IT IS ALSO A GOOD FIELD TO GO WITH.

    GOOD LUCK

    Hello All,

    Thank you all for your replies. Thanks a lot!!

    I am not much interested in IT management. I somehow don't feel satisfaction in it. Everytime my preference is to impact someones life, help someone. I for some reason did not find that in my current Job. This is specific to me.

    As many of you said, I can consider marketing. But i heard it requires a lot of travelling which I dont like at all

    ALso could someone eloborate on HR management...

    hi
    since you have planned on doing MBA and you are not interested in the IT sector and you want to focus on HR services then there are probably a couple of thing you should know.
    HR is not only about helping people . You won't be just helping people but you would also be firing them and since and thus if you are interested in making an impact in someone's life
    then you should probably choose marketing .
    Marketing could give you an opportunity to help many people and make an impact on them .
    and travelling in marketing depends on what kind of job you overtake.
