Have 4 year of IT experience but want to change career path

Such R, MBA Aspirant asked 12 months ago

I have worked in an MNC company for 4 year now. I do not enjoy my work so I dropped my papers and now exploring other opportunities. I am also preparing for CAT but is it a good option considering I have 4 years of experience in a sector I don’t want to go back to.
My interest lies in field of communication like Business development. Client success roles.

There are high chances of landing in the business development roles in the same industry. If you work hard and take right steps from the beginning in the pursuit of your roles then you would definitely land somewhere near that! 
~ Good luck

See with CAT your work experience is definitely going to fetch you extra points and will make help you secure calls from top institutes.And even after that, your work experience will assist in GD-PI as well. I see just one difficulty with your profile which is that you have a work-ex of more than 3 years so what I would suggest you is that you should try and bell CAT 2018 and in case you, unfortunately, are not able to clear CAt this time, then you can also consider the idea of Executive MBA (which is for work-ex guys especially).
