I am 40yrs old with appx 19yr exp in mktg. Is there any age restriction to pursue PGDMM course and any scope for career enhancement if I do?

I am a Science (Physics) undergraduate with no further academic background. Have been in marketing of industrial products for the last 19 years. Currently working as a senior manager marketing in a small manufacturing firm. I wanted to enhance my academic qualification to get good overseas jobs.

    there is no age restriction in management courses offered by Management Institutes. It will definitely enhance your career prospects .You still have about 20 years of working life and you will reap good benefits by doing Masters in Marketing Management.However I would suggest to do the same as a regular Full time or Part time student and not a correspondence course.
