Motivation : I have been into sales role for more than 5 years now and not enjoying same any more. salary is not an issue, as I will get better package if I switch to some other bank. I am 30 years right now and in few years time, instead of exploring some thing exciting, I would have compulsion to settle down with what I have. I always wanted to work in analytics role, had done financial econometric/SAS/SPSS during MBA and enjoyed it a lot. Even after being in banking my passion for numbers is intact. And best way I visualise myself is into an intellectually challenging role, some thing which makes my mind work in analytical sense. I will rate myself good in quant. but I lack programming skill, although I studies C,JAVA way back in 2002-03.
Technical role : Never got a chance when I was fit for that. will not get into detail but there was a time back in 2008-10 I tried to get into that.
Main Confusion I have an offer letter from Great Lakes to join in Jan 2016 batch for PGPBA. Course fee is 4 lac. Have gone through one of your article wherein you categorised who should join this course and also learning outcomes. I do not exactly fit into that parameter. Moreover will that course outcome will help me, that also is a question ?Fee is ofcourse an issue but in case there is high likely hood to get a job even with slightly lower salary, that’s ok with me. So with my background shall i start with Jigsaw or GLIM.
Outcome which I expect Irrespective where i join I need a start into analytical role post my learning. That is the whole Idea. hence I want to understand where to start (first Jigsaw then GLIM/ISB) or straight way GLIM.
You are the only person whom I could find who can effectively guide me. Think of me as your protege
