Question: I am in an executive position, though roles and responsibilities includes 1 1/2 year in Quality of Call centre and Process improvement and implementation of project. along with 4+ years in customer service & operations. I can't affort to do MBA, But, the cost for 6sigma is affortable.
I want to grow in the industry(ie. Mutal funds) i am open to work in another industry too.

I am based in UK and do not know the condition in India. With so many MBAs coming out of institutions, it may be difficult. However, I know that our son-in-law isa manager in German-based firm in India with only a diploma in engineering. Hence, with a specialist qualification like SS certification, it may be possible to go up the ladder. Though you can't afford an MBA it should not hold you back from studying what MBAs study in your own time, so that you can answer questions thrown at you.
Have a nice day and best wishes
