12 years experience - core engineering - MBA ?

Post Mon Feb 20, 2017 1:49 am
Hi there,

I am a 37 year old chemical engineer from the oil and gas industry with around 12 years of core engineering experience (national+international).

I reside in India ,and given the recent oil and gas recession, I am thinking abut an MBA. I aspire to get a full time MBA from a good school.

Can someone suggest me as to what kind of MBA would be a good fit. Would it be good to try for a 1 year course at a school like Insead or would it be good to try for a 2 year MBA at American Ivy leagues like Stanford HBS etc?

Given that I wish to change sector, I believe a 2 year MBA would be good. Is that correct?

My confusion comes from the fact that given no management background I might find it tough during a 1 year MBA (with a compressed syllabus) and might find to change the sector(lack of internship). Are these apprehensions correct enough or am I being too paranoid?

A request to pour in your suggestions please Smile
regards
Anand Iyer
