I am student of B.com final year. I want to do my MBA but I am confused whether to do it from O.U or ICFAI Would you kindly tell me whether MBA (Finance) is good or MBA (Marketing). Also is ICFAI recognized by the Govt. and whether it's degree is valid abroad
As far as the latest rankings published in various magazines like India Today, Business Today and Outlook are concerned, ICFAI Business School is among the top business schools in India. But in any case, it is inappropriate for us to tell you in clear terms whether you should do it from Osmania University of ICFAI Business Schools. For selecting a business schools, the first and foremost thing is that you have to make a list of schools where you will apply. Your list must have 10-12 schools. Getting into a good MBA course is difficult and so you must have a number of options instead of selecting only one school like Osmania University or ICFAI Business School. While making this list, you can consider the following points.
Quality of curriculum of the MBA programme
Quality of faculty
Cost of the MBA programme
You can refer to the rankings of the business schools published in the magazines mentioned above. They also give you insights into the above criteria for selection
Also concentrate on preparation for the MBA admission tests irrespective of the school you finally select. Admission tests are difficult and they need a lot of preparation to qualify through.
Any elective you choose in your MBA course can lead you to a good future. Your future depends on your knowledge, motivation, and performance on the job. If you perform well on the job, irrespective of your field, you will have a good future. Ideally you should choose your elective based on your interest. Are you interested in Finance more than in Marketing? Are you interested in Human Resources more than in Finance? See which elective interests you most. Job opportunity wise, Marketing and Finance traditionally offers large number of opportunities. So, if you want to be on a safer side, you may choose either Finance or Marketing.
