Hi guyz,

I am karthik from chennai, working in a canada based IT company for the past 3 years. I wish to prepare for entrance exam for Management studies (CAT in india).

I wanna know whether any one with 3 year experience in IT will do MBA in top tier institutions in India. Or is it advisable to opt for Executive MBA after 5 years of work exp. If the former is ok, i will opt for giving a wild shot at CAT this year and prepare rigorously for next year exam.

At this juncture i could not decide whether my career should be in IT or else where. So my options would be,

1. Switch over to another IT company with a higher package, work for 2 more years, get a executive MBA, progress in IT.


2. Give a shot @ 2011 CAT in spite of low confidence, switch over to some other company, without concentrating on tech career, prepare for 2012 entrance exams, crack it. Get a good b-school, move up the career ladder.

Please help guyz ! I dont have anyone to give professional advice. So please be kind to help !! Thanks !!
