Is it good to do higher studies after working for 2 years?

Yes, I would suggest it. Given the current economic situation and the firecast, I would suggest that this is the right time to pursue higher studies like PGDM or MBA. In addition, your two years of experience will make you appreciate the theoretical parts. You will also be a preferred candidate among your peers for placements, as companies also appreciate experienced candidates.

Check out Tier 1 Universities or at least Top Tier 2 Universities like NMIMS, SIBM, ASB (Ashoka School of Business) Hyderabad, IFIM, Alliance (Bangalore), Bocconi (Mumbai), IMT Ghaziabad, IISWBM Kolkata etc. ASB is one of the c

There are pros and cons to both options. Work experience can help you get more out of graduate school. The extra maturity also helps. On the other hand, you may not have the patience to attend classes, write tests, and not have that monthly paycheck.

So it is a personal choice.

When it comes to a business administration degree, I think work experience is a must.

Thanks for A2A.
This basically depends on your priorities. From my perspective, it is always recommended that if you have a plan for higher studies, you do not delay it too long (although a gap of 1 to 2 years is fine). You need to find out which category is best for you among the following and find a trade-off.

  1. If you do not want to take a break between studies, then it is better to opt for higher studies.
  2. If your family's financial situation needs your support, then it makes more sense to take a job for some time and go to higher education after the situation stabilizes. agree or not, higher education

  2. If your family's financial situation needs your support, then it makes more sense to take a job for some time and go to higher education after the situation stabilizes. Agree or disagree, higher education in India does not provide enough monetary support; I suppose you are looking forward to higher education in India
  3. If after 3/4 years of university studies, you want a break from studies for 1-2 years, you can opt for a job.
  4. If you want to explore how the industry works and you are not very sure about your higher curriculum at the moment, you can give it a try if you opt for a job after bachelor's degree.
  5. If you have the opportunity to work on some areas of research during your work, it could open up your perspective on research, which is essentially a big part of the 'higher studies', that you plan for the future. Also, it could help you get into a better institute.

Well, it's up to you. Simply about your financial situation and family history. Even though you are inspired to pursue higher studies abroad, either to increase your dimensions on the subject or to earn an income, the 2 above play an important role for THE FOLLOWING.

If you are from an economically backward family, I suggest that you work for a while until you save something for your higher studies after supporting your family financially. Then you can study. In fact, people who have prior work experience are mostly preferred to a naive with no experience in the master's application process. If things work

If you are from an economically backward family, I suggest that you work for a while until you save something for your higher studies after supporting your family financially. Then you can study. In fact, people who have prior work experience are mostly preferred to a naive with no experience in the master's application process. If things work out well, you can even get financing.

For a former former job candidate:

The chances of being admitted are more,

CTC will be slightly more than inexperienced candidates.

If you are from a well established family. Cool. Life is yours. Preferably a master's degree is a good option than settling for a job. You will gain knowledge and exposure to industry abroad will be greater. Take your exams as soon as possible and apply if you have a rich dad.

"Never settle."

If you are from a middle class family, I am missing an exact and precise suggestion. If you really want to live a luxurious life, go ahead and earn your master's degree for wear and tear. If you want to settle for what you want and do not want your parents to find themselves in serious situations or troublesome problems, then put yourself at work and try to move up in your company so that some can sponsor your further studies if your position demands it.

I hope this will help.

And don't rush your decisions. Take your time, talk to as many as possible. Remember that it is a one-time payment at the Aston Martin showroom versus a monthly installment paid at a Maruthi Suzuki car company.

I think it is absolutely okay to opt for higher education after you have gained some experience in the related field. I myself wish to pursue higher studies as I am about to complete my postgraduate degree in two months. But I would rather work for at least a year. It also gives you financial backing that you might need when you decide on higher education. Also, theoretical knowledge is at its best when complemented by practical experience, and since you would already have experience on the job, it could prove advantageous, especially in the development sector.

However, if you are a woman and are not married as of now, this becomes critical whether you will be able to pursue your dreams or not because in most Indian families (there are exceptions), it is a preconceived notion that after marriage, to continue with education it is not possible. So, plan accordingly. All the best!

Well, titles have been coming in different forms today.

  1. Online
  2. Part time
  3. Traditional full-time degree

Online degrees.

That is, you can use an online platform (Coursera, EdX, Upgrad, etc.) and complete a full degree from a reputable university or a nano degree that is legally different from a degree. The government does not formally recognize it in most cases, especially in India. But, if you are focused on learning and want to advance your career, this could be a good bet. They are usually cheaper than regular degrees, can be completed at your own pace, can have a cohort to work with

Part time.

This is often a popular option outside of India. In India, you can choose to enroll in a distance education course or similar (for example: IGNOU). You can also enroll in some programs run by some decent universities like BITS Pilani (Work While You Learn Program - WYLP). The company you are working with may have a partnership with these universities. It's a good idea to always check with your HR team for these special opportunities and partnerships.

Full-time traditional degrees.

You can take a gap year and earn your degree and go back to your company. Some companies support these flexibilities based on their experience and policies.

It goes without saying that you will need to be very disciplined when enrolling in these degrees while working. It is always good to trust your manager and make him understand that you strive to move forward by working together.

I believe that one should plan higher studies according to career aspirations. If your goal is to have experience abroad with possible settlement options in a given country, then higher studies should be planned at any stage of the year of study, depending on the student visa and immigration policy of a foreign country. However, it is said that Bachelor's degree in INDIA is enough and one should seek Master's degrees only abroad. This could be due to the cost and duration of the master's programs. If one has work experience, wide options for higher studies abroad open up. Ideally 2 or 3 years of work experience.

Ideally, the person should have 2-3 years of work experience, as it would be helpful in countless ways that prepare students for higher study abroad. Work experience can open the eyes to all the practical problems of everyday life and can impart maturity to students.

However, there is no general rule for this ... I have seen many people pursue higher studies after completing a Bachelor's degree in India, including freshmen and experienced professionals. One must decide this issue considering the cost, opportunities, and immigration policy of a given country. I think this is a broad criterion that I can suggest for further brainstorming ...

Best of luck,

I totally agree with the other gentlemen.

You know what it's like to go to school because that's all you've done so far. Now try some practical experience. It will set you up in subtle ways that will affect your thoughts and decisions. It gives you a perspective that only dabbling in new things can give you and will help you to be better equipped for your MBA.

School will always be close. The opportunity to shape your mind changes over time. Just do it :)

First I would like to share my experience. Until I completed my graduation, all that was taught at grade level was a gorilla to me. There was no Internet, no good communication, and no democratic / transparent procedure in the universities.

However, I was lucky enough to be selected as an employee at a PSU. After that, my confidence grew like anything. After a few years, my vocabulary got richer, body language changed, and I signed up for an MBA and passed with great success. Whatever is in the syllabus it became very, very easy for me.

Now you can decide what to do in advance.

Good question.

The decision to go to work or pursue higher education should be decided based on these factors:

  1. Appetite for more knowledge
  2. Financial needs
  3. Ability to support more expenses for higher education.
  4. Established professional goals:
    1. Be in academics
    2. Be in consulting

The decision has to evolve from within based on the above factors.

This will be a very personalized decision and will vary from case to case.

Hope you get some guidance on your inquiry.

Thank you very much for the A2A.

Happy decision making!

Hey hello

My direct advice to you.

If you have an entrepreneurial mind and want to do something on your own in the future, I think you should take a multinational job, get some experience, and start your own company.

If you are looking to do a long term job and if you are getting an MBA from a good university then it is preferable to do an MBA as nowadays job promotions are based on education qualification rather than experience .

That's my opinion, I wouldn't call it advice.

All the best for the future. Health!

Of course, the average age of PGDM at some of the leading business universities in the country is 34 to 35 years old. Your years of experience will make you more appreciative of theory and applications. They will become more identifiable to you.

You'll also get a head start during placements, as companies coming to campus prefer students with work experience. Check out the following universities: ASB (Ashoka School of Business, Hyderabad), MYRA (Mysore), GIBS (Bangalore), NMIMS & IMT (Hyderabad), Alliance (Bangalore), IISWBM (Kolkata), etc.
