Career crossroads decision

By Nagaraj Lanka ·
hi

i am from india and active user of tech republic website.i am facing a career dilemma .

i am an MBA majoring in internet technologies .i have around 1 yr of experience in uml based project design and management . i have also worked for product development through competitor product analysis and new feature suggestion and overseeing development . i do not have a technical 4 year degree in engineering disciplines , i am an MBA.

i am not being given any technical assignments although my uml and java skills are above average .

so , which career should i opt for

1) going in for technical certifications and aggressively update my knowledge in technical side like dotnet or java based j2ee technologies

or 2) go for an advance management degree and go for general consulting career.i have an opportunity to join the big 5 consulting companies this way but it will take 1 yr of slog for advanced management degree.

my company says it cant sponsor me for H1B ?
wat to do ?my aptitude is in technology management. i am equi proficient in both the paths ? please advise ?

You should do what you you think will make you happy. Based on what you wrote you are obviously very intelligent and seem to be in the very enviable position of possessing a large number of very valuable skills. It seems that you have what it takes to succeed whichever direction you choose to go, so what makes you happy? Would you prefer to spend the next few years of your life pounding out code or consulting? There are many opportunties in both areas. One suggestion that I would make is if your current company is not willing to sponsor you to stay in this country (assuming that you wish to stay), start finding a position immediately that will sponsor you. Whatever you decide, I wish you the best of luck.
