I am a fresh engineering graduate and I was about to switch fields to the luxury sector. I have already been admitted to the MSc program of SKEMA and am waiting for a response from SPJAIN. I am confused among the two when it comes to job projects, both back home and abroad, and the quality of education and exposure that they provide.
Here are the key points:-
1)My main goal is to gain insight and experience in the luxury sector and then come back to India (because India is the fastest growing market for luxury goods, after China, and soon it will overtake it too. Moreover, India lacks managerial professionals who have exclusively been trained for the luxury sector and so the demand is expected to be quite high in the coming years ). If I can get a company to send me back to India to manage its operations here, then that would be ideal,(as many luxury brands are yet to set hold in India)
2)As for the language barrier, I would take a language course depending upon the college I select, so that is not an issue.
3)I know that I'll have to work my way through to the managerial position and I have no problem with it.
4)From what I hear, SKEMA is quite good and is developing at a great rate, but I am unsure about its reputation in India and about job prospects here after I graduate from there. Whereas I am unsure about the quality of education in SPJAIN(well because, India).
5)Initially, I would have to work to gain experience, so placements is a factor I would have to consider.
PS: I have already read all the related articles and threads here in find-mba. All of them were outdated and they did not answer my queries. So what I would like is a fresh insight and opinions to help me choose.
