i would suggest you,
better take a year or so experience and then study the funda's of management,

the benefit would be three times.

1) in the college you would have an upper hand over others to understand and relate to the gyaan of the professors and also always have an experience to share to your friends and class.

2) during placement, you changes of getting picked at a premium is higher

3) you would be able to handle much more than expected form you as your first job after management as you have a prior experience

Who the hell said Life is easy. There aint and cant be any shortcut to success. With experience one is exposed to different situations. Through exposure, one is matures. Work experience is must.

Hi friends,

I definitely think that doing MBA with some prior work experience is definitely helpful. There is a lot of difference between the world of theory and the world of reality. Most academic institutions (despite their est efforts) end up teaching more thory than reality. A previous exposure to teh workplace orients a would be MBA aspirant to everyday practical realities of getting things done at the work place and the nitty gritties involved in it. Unless one gets one's hands dirty one really does not learn much. And it is with this background only that one comes to appreciate stuff that goes into MBA curriculum and the need for these topics. SO if one is interested in getting the most out of one's MBA , having prior work experience definitely provides a head-start.

Thanks.

Re: Which is better- Doing MBA as fresher Or with Work Experience - May 8th, 2008

I have taken classes with students with no work experience and those with work experience.

For students with no work experience, an MBA gives you book insight, it makes things clearer, helps you learn how to put presentations together and gets you up in front of an audience. So if you go straight through you come out with advantages over a BS or BA. But someone with 5-10-15 yrs of work experience has a significant advantage over what they learn. But at the end of the day it is networking, who you know and what you seek that will make a difference in your career. You can do an MBA at Harvard and if you cannot speak with people end up unemployed or do an MBA in India, know the right people, find a great opportunity and do wonderful in your career and life.

Doing MBA with experience is better than doing MBA as a fresher because with prior industry experience helps you to understand management subjects better.
