Question: I had completed my MBA in JNTU with finance and marketing specializations. I like to work in finance departments. Please tell me some short term courses which would help me in getting job. Shall I do fico course?
Answer: Instead of looking for a course you can approach for an opportunity to work as a trainee with consulting companies in the financial advisory to Organizations. Alternatively you identify people working in Finance Departments (through your seniors or personal network. Also use social networking sites like – www.linkedin.com to identify and make friendship online). You can approach Small and Medium Size organizations have a specific finance department who would require MBA-Finance. Doing a FICO course may not help. Otherwise you can understand the SAP-FICO from your friends, which would help to use the same if the finance department where you work, has the software. Finance department of companies are basically users hence you should have appreciation only.
