An aspiring manager asked, ‘I did B.Tech (ECE) and I am having 9 years experience in Software industry. Please suggest good Institute for MBA (Finance) correspondence course. Is it good for my career? Here I am mentioning few Institutions which I know.. 1.IGNOU 2. Symbiosis 3.Osmania University. Please suggest few good Institutes from your side.
Answer: Your thought processes is very good and wish you a great time ahead. All the Institutes you mentioned have a good course curriculum and I have seen people benefited from all these done finance with lot of experience in software industry. The courses pursued seriously by each of the member benefited in working effectively in their jobs back. However, for better exposure and interaction with the external world, explore a part-time course (after office hours) offered by few of the Business Institutes in AP (VJIM and IPE to name few). However in the case of distance more, if you have people around who can help you in understanding the Finance perspective in Business in your current organisation or experts.
Job or MBA after B.Com: Taking positive of not able to do MBA, please do focus on securing a job with your qualification right away so that you get hands on working experience. May be couple of years of work experience you would be able to assess yourself better and based on which decide on doing MBA program with a specialization you have interest.
Where to apply for HR and Finance Jobs: You need to be sure on what is the area that you are interested in and want to focus on. Most of the HR / Finance jobs are filled especially at entry level by Reference. There are a few other jobs related to the Recruiter, Credit Officer etc., are published where you can check through any of the job sites and news paper advertisements. List and spot the companies who have in Hyderabad (other location if you are interested) and review their websites and identify if you know or can get a contact in that company and approach the concerned HR department for a job. Alternatively review the Industry associations like NASSCOM, CII, FAPCI and FICCI etc to understand the industry.
