Hello friends,
I want to ask the HR freternity that would you prefer candidates who have done fulltime 2 year MBA from reputed university or candidates who have done short term executive MBA from costly institutes/colleges just for the sake of promotion and salary hike and if so is thr no value for doing fulltime MBA and wasting 2 years and opportunity cost.

What i feel is, many recruiters have a set criteria to appoint new people provided they have a full time MBA...and so MBA becomes imperative here..and am not aware how much an executive MBA helps in promotions and salary hikes...that would be more linked i think to job performance...Well just my perceptions,no compulsion to subscribe to it...

Hi, in my opinion it actually doesn't really matter if you have done a full time MBA or just a speedfast Executive MBA.. just having a degree is sufficient.. I don't think any HR/recruitment agency specifies that they would hire only those with an an Executive MBA; However having an MBA degree from a premier B school is definitely an advantage not because of the implied cost but bcoz of the quality education that is perceived to be imparted at such institutes..
There are however different views on doing MBA full time or through distance learning..

Hi Jyoti, Yes i agree with your view but then my question is , should people opt for full time 2 years MBA and waste precious time.

Hi Aditya,
First we need to understand the reason for doing MBA.. Freshers usually take up MBA becoz they want to study all aspects of Business, in theory and practice... while experienced ppl do MBA to gain an edge over others in terms of professional know how.. If you see the curriculum of both you'll find that when you do a 2/3 years MBA course the curriculum is more extensive and covers more areas than an Executive MBA which would be more focused at the subject of your choice.. (More like the difference btw a generalist & a specialist)... That is the reason that for an Executive MBA, most institutes ask for experience, ranging from 2-3 years.
Hence the choice depends on the person and his knowledge base coupled with expertise & experience.
This is what I think...
