      Hi Vaibhav ,

      I think you have a great CV. So doing a Management Master fits very well into your career trajectory.

      However, don't go for a Master in Management (MIM). Go for an MBA instead. MIM programs are for graduates and career entries. MBA programs are for young professionals and professionals and career development.

      Have a look on our article on the difference between Master in Management (MIM) and MBA.

      All the best
