How important is work experience for making it to a good B School? What is the benefit of pursuing an MBA for a fresher?
Most students ask this question quite often on HTCampus. And, hence, we conducted an interview with the co-founder of India’s no- 1 MBA coaching centre Career Launcher Mr. Gautam Puri. Let’s have a look what’s his views on this topic-
“In the Indian context, the best time to pursue an MBA is immediately after graduation. The reason is very simple; the early you do an MBA, the faster your career will grow. Secondly, if you work for two to three year before MBA, yes, you will get some weightage when you go for the MBA. But unfortunately, most of the companies will not give you full weightage. For instance, if you worked for three years, you will probability get weightage for one year experience. So, in a way, since, you are not getting the full weightage of your work experience, you might as well do it earlier. So, in my point of view, you should prepare for the entrance exam for the MBA when you are in final year of your Bachelor’s program. And, opt for the MBA right after your graduation.”
However, the decision of pursuing MBA right after graduation or after getting some experience depends on your own preferences now.
