If you are doing your MBA in Finance, I am sure you will have many more attractive options than SAP FI-CO. Getting into SAP FI-CO may be considered after you get some functional experience in the Finance and Controling fields However, if you are hell bent on pursuing such a career your best bet is to try for a campus or entry level placement with some companies who may be able to provide training and mentoring to make up in part, for your lack of experience. You know who these companies are - the usual suspects when Indian IT companies are mentioned.

Thank you Mr. Harish

But my doubt is, I completed my sap fico training, but i don't have any experience. I am an MBA finance fresher. Then can I get job in SAP field?? Am I eligible???

If you have completed training in SAP FI-CO, it is a different issue, perhaps the MBA was not necessary then, anyway, you are eligible, but only to be employed as a fresher. It is a fact that the industry values experience, but it is not worth it in my opinion to artificially create that experience on your CV. as I explained once you complete your MBA, you could apply to one the companies (example, whose name starts with I or W or T), as they may have an internship programme for freshers. Your SAP training may even help you in getting this job. You must be aware that there are lots of candidates for these jobs, and there are several considerations such as your academic grades and things like that...

In short, yes eligible as a fresher, provided you get an opportunity to interview with one of the large IT organizations, Highlight your Finance MBA training and SAP FI-CO training in your CV, but resist the urge to put fake experience - you should put in your time and gain experience the hard way. However you should not limit yourself to SAP jobs if you are in the process of gaining an MBA degree...hedge your bets with some other kinds of FI jobs which also offer opportunities to freshers, is my advice.

All the best.
