I want to complete one last degree as bunch of my friends strongly advised me to complete a Master degree to avoid ....
0) Completed 10th - 2001
1) Completed 3 year diploma course(DCT) - 2004
2) Completed BCA through Distance education - 2007
After completed diploma, I never liked touch any course books. I have completed BCA without any interest, the reason for BCA was IT filters. In India, some IT companies filter(first) the resumes by education background(atleast a degree). Before BCA, it was really a terrible experience to get in interviews.
Now the reason for this Master degree is same as above. In some IT companies, they filter the resumes by checking the candidate has Master degree. This is a curse for Indian developers like me. In foreign, they don't care about education much.
So now I don't have interest to study but I want to complete a Master degree through Distance education. I consider this master degree just as a label on top of a book, that's it.
Here I picked MBA because of the course duration. Basically it's 2 year course & in some places/ways it has only 1 year duration. And I don't want to spend much money on this. I want really a cheapest one. IIRC, my BCA course took 30K to complete(Including exam fees, etc.,)
Or if you have any other suggestion? like some other master degree with less duration(1 year), please throw me the details.
I don't have plan now. And I can't take any courses serious any more, I hate course books because I'm not interested in studies but want to complete one more course .... (Read my 1st message). FYI I bought couple of comics books recently.
Completing MBA with just pass mark is more than enough for me.
If you want to be considered by the big names, you better complete a masters degree. If you've decided to do it anyways, why not spend another year and do the course properly? That way, it will have more value.
A certification like CISSP (or something else like that, with market demand) might add value to your resume. Good luck to you.
After completed BCA, I have applied for MCA but couldn't continue due to few reasons* & now expired. So this time I prefer shortest duration & that's why I choose 1 year MBA. Besides I'm not going to stay on IT for longtime. Surely I'm gonna switch over to some other field. More details later.
*couldn't get leaves for exams & studies on past orgs. Wasted some money on that around 15-20K
if you ask me. it's of no use. i have my BCA and started job. after first two companies no one even asked about my degree. and pay wise also it's in top 25% bracket. How ever if you want to do MBA do a executive MBA from really good institute.
The code is 4728, I think you need to apply then I can accept you - Please try to make it clear who you are (make your name similar to your CP handle) as some people outside of CP try to join by randomly entering league codes.
I too have sent the request. My team name is similar to the CP handle so shouldn't be tough to identify.
I can see that we already have few guys joined there. Need to see if @Abhinav-S or @Sandeep-Mewara will be joining or not this time.
As usual you guys have started well after 2 days and first time I am not leading in initial phase. So I have chances to lead in later stage?? By the way I am waiting PB to accept my request to join the league.
The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which; he simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.
Yeah he gathered most points. I think you didn't had the good first match, after that you are almost spot on.
This is one feature which I miss here in CLT20 (availability of match wise ranking progress).
