Hi, I am a fresher just about to graduate this June. I have an offer from an IT company as well as an admit from SIBM. I want to know whether it is a good idea for me to join SIBM this year or to try for better colleges like IIMs next year. Will I get a better salary if I join an MBA with a year of work-ex?
Doing an MBA as a fresher is not recommended at all. The amount of knowledge you will assimilate in your MBA course increases exponentially with experience (till about 5 years of work-ex). The salary you get post MBA with 0-2 years experience is the same. However, in order to ensure that your MBA degree has added value in the longer term, you will be better off getting experience before enrolling in one.
