Tarun Sheth answers queries related to your career.

Q: I have been working with a trade consultancy firm for the past three years. I am planning to do an online MBA programme from a foreign university. Will it broaden my horizons in any way?

There are many foreign universities that offer online MBAs. However, I must confess that they will not greatly add to your prospects as much as a full-time MBA will. So, I would strongly suggest that if you are young and can afford to take a couple of years off-you should look at a full-time MBA programme. Having said that-something is better than nothing. So, if you do wish to pursue the online option-do it from a leading university.

Q: I am 27-year-old Chartered Accountant working with a leading micro-finance company. I aspire to start my own finance firm in the next few years. Please suggest any part-time course that can help enhance my skills.

If you want to hone your skills, there is an Entrepreneurship Development Institute offering a wide range of courses. There are short-and long-term courses in entrepreneurship development offered by IIT Bombay and the IIMs. Apart from these, you could even think of pursuing an MBA or an MFM (Financial Management).
