I have 6+ years of experience in IT. Currently working as a senior developer in a reputed organization. I intend to do an MBA. Should I go for executive or study aboard.
MBA in India or Abroad
The executive business programs in India such as those offered by IIMA, IIMB, IIMC and ISB are good programs that offer quality education, on-campus placements, great peer groups and acclaimed alumni networks.

Such benefits are available only in the top schools in USA and Europe, where the amount you would spend would be much more, and the competition you would face for admission would be much higher. Of course, a top program abroad would get you entry into a league much bigger than what the Indian programs can promise. There are middle rung programs in US and Europe and schools in other destinations such as Australia and South East Asia too but finding employment through these can be challenging and the legal situation regarding finding employment after graduating is constantly changing.

Consider these factors, choose the programs you want to apply, take the GMAT and start making your applications. You would need to start preparing a year in advance of the date you want to start the program. First round applications for most schools in India and abroad begin in the month of September. By then, you need to have studied for the GMAT, taken the test, obtained recommendations, written down the essays and arranged the other documentation. Start the process early, take the first steps, you will figure things out as you proceed.
