Hello Seniors,Now i will tell my situation clearly .Please give a clarity for me, as i am in a crucial situation..

I am in Chennai.I am 25 now. Working in a IT company , have 3 years experience i couldnt write CAT or TANCET anything this time as i didnt get leave and also no time for preparation. I am fed up with my job and cant stand there anymore , i am very interested in the MBA HR field , but unfortunately and unavoidable situations i didnt take the CAT or TANCET or any Entrance tests..So if i wanna go into a B School i should take up the tests next year , by then i will be 26 and at the end of course 2 years i would be 28 years ..at that time if i get a good job by placement from a B-School then the salary would be atleast minimum 20k pm , so after a year of experience i could marry ..but for that one year from now would be wasted..

So i thought instead of waiting for the next year , let me go to some Deemed University and do a MBA in HR as specialization, so today went to SRM and enquired about the fees , they told 5 Lakhs for 2 years , thats only tuition fees and additional fees like Books , Transport , Semester Fees and placement fees are extra it seems , so it will take nearly 6 Lakhs total . i dont think its worth , one of my friend told me , as i havent written any Entrance Tests and also the age factor , go to some good Tier 1 B-Schools which have Management Quota Seats ..So my search ended in SSN School of Management , as its a B-School and also the fees would also be less, but in its website they have mentioned eventhough if its Management Quota candidates must have written any of the Entrance test it seems.. Is it so ? then i have to wait for another 1 year which i dont want to do .. or can i study MBA in any Private Engineering Colleges or Deemed Universitied , if i dont wanna waste a year ?

Practically When i analysed myself , some of the facts are , i am 25 now ,so after completing MBA i would be near 27-28 , at that time if i get a good job by placement from a B-School then the salary would be atleast minimum 20k pm , so after a year of experience i could marry ..but for this i should wait for the next year , so one year wasted..

If i dont wanna waste a year then i could go for SRM..but will it be worth on the ROI if i dont get a placement there for HR field ..

Some of my doubts are ,

1) After completing MBA from a Deemed University ,if i get a job in placements then everything is fine , but if the placements are a let down for HR specialization , i should search for jobs outside in Consultancies , what will be the Salary then ?

2) Will age be a factor in placements in B-Schools as i would be 28 at that time ?

Or is there any Courses by which i can get into HR , other than a fulltime course ?

Please give a clarity for me, as i am in a crucial situation..

I would like to know how will be the salary of 5 years experience in HR in IT and also what kind of jobs would you get after completing PhD in MBA ..
