i am a colonel in the indian army and shortly completing 20 yr of service. i am 41 yrs old. i plan to quit within two yrs during which time i want to enhance my qualifications. i am pusuing PGDBA from symbiosis as a distance learning pgme. i am also considering sitting for GMAT and provided i attain a respectable score i can think of the one yr executive MBA pgme from a good college. i have been reading your threads on varied topics. PM is another area which interests me a lot. we keep doing something similar in the army though maybe without the requisite expertise and focus.
what are the options available to me and how should i structure my preparation in the next 2 yrs to be able to better adapt to the demands of the corporate world. i would like to mention that the reason i am chucking is lack of challenge and job satisfaction.
shall be grateful for your views.

We are really thrilled to have you on this site.
Are you interested in Project Management?
It depends on what your baisc qualification is - an engineer ???
If you can be little more specific, may be I can try and answer your queries.
Thanks once again

i am Bsc (Hons) in biochemistry, a qualification not likely to be of much help. however, i am also Msc.(Tech) weapon systems and hold a diploma in Defence management.
can one not make a fresh start in project management ? does one have to have very specific qualifications ?
how should i structure my preparations ?
which are the good colleges offering executive MBA and PM pgmes ?
looking fwd to your views.
