Ok I think it was impulse or perhaps a moment of insanity but about a week ago I joined an MBA program here in India. I joined a bit late and the class had already gained a month on me. I don't know if I'm just feeling overwhelmed with all the crapp I missed or just plain bored to tears with stuff being taught that I feel I will never use, but I feel like quitting. I thought I'd maybe transfer to an MIS program but looking at the curriculum it looks like it would take me back to 1's and 0's and all the basic stuff. Again lot of the curriculum feels useless and outdated. Do you think It's a good idea to drop out now only after a week? How would I show this on my resume, I quit my job to prepare for these entrance exams(never mind that I eventually got into an MBA program that didn't require one cause I didn't have the aptitude to get into the leading programs).

An MBA isn't very marketable if it's not from the top twenty business schools in the US.
If you are in India the good marketable MBA programs are at the IIMs, Bajaj, NM, and maybe a couple of other institutes.

I think you should be happy that you won't be going through something that's not going to make you much money.
