    I want to do MBA in finannce..Where does investment banking come into picture?? Is it a part of MBA in finance?? I work in IT industry. Doing MBA in finance,do I require any prior knowledge related to it?? I aave total work exp of around 4 yrs.

    Sanjay

    • Hanif Khan says:

      Sanjay, MBA finance is good. every sector has a finance department. no matter if you have the experience in IT. matter is you have the experience and experience never fails. investment banking is a booming chapter in finance because of the highly demand of global market. many industries invest their capital in other firms. investment banking has the principles for that. keep your MBA (F) going on.

      • Sumeet Badkar says:

        Hi,

        On this site, I saw many queries posted by people wishing to pursue MBA/Masters in finance after non-finance undergraduate qual. and they have got addressed properly. Just like others, even I have certain queries.

        I am a BSC.IT graduate(year 2010) with 4 years of IT operations (Semi-tech) experience. Currently,I am pursuing MBA (1st year) from an abroad country. My specialization would be preferably in either Finance or HR, but I haven’t decided on it yet. I have studied commerce till 12th then moved to IT considering the scope but till now I couldnt progress well.

        The main reason I am not choosing IT now is because of lack of interest and constant upgradations in the sector but now certain misbeliefs regards to finance are constantly bothering me.

        1. Is it so that an IT grad with 4 yrs of exp can’t switch fields?
        2. Will the finance industry welcome me, considering the switch of field?
        3. Will my previous experience go waste due to switch?
        What are opportunities in Finance field?
        4. Would Finance studies in abroad country differ from the one in India?
        5. Do you need much of accounting knowledge to enter finance domain?

        Waiting for reply..

        Thanks

      • Hanif Khan says:

        We have deeply researched on that situation and finally reached to the conclusion that you now belong to the IT sector because you have the degree and 4 year experience. You want to go under the corporate/management department and there is no need to be a fully technical or having the B.Tech or M.Tech. You can carry your 7 years precious years with the MBA in IT. By doing so you will be considered as the figure of IT sector. But if you will undergo to the finance or HR, your degree and your experience will not be considered for the finance or HR and you will have to start your career from the initially point and that will take more time to settle. Remember companies in current job scenario prefer to the most younger candidates for initial position.And more over don’t thing that you are a commerce guy. 12th in commerce is not a degree to set the career. You better do the MBA in IT for best career according to your profile.

    thank you

    • Hanif Khan says:

      See, first of all i would like to tell you that now you are doing a bachelor degree and offered a certificate course, then funda is clear now. don’t loose your bachelor for a certificate. second, after BMS you will be counted in graduates but after certificate…???? third, you may get the same specialization after BMS while you will pick the PG/master course. but then the value will be more.
