Hi, If is a very difficult decision to quit a good job and pursue higher studies. Analyse your present position and see if you are getting stagnated in your job. Ask yourself if you still have the fire to pursue Higher Studies. Ask your friends who have gone abroad about the scope for someone like you. 

But I meet every day several students and 8 out of 10 have good jobs but have a dying desire to pursue higher studies or they are fed up with their present job. Some of them are doing jobs not related to their education and wanted to pursue Higher studies in their core areas. 

Some have bigger ambitions of making to the Top management and break jobs to seek MBA's abroad. 

My advice will be to seek a Country which is quite easy on foreign students and still gives jobs visas like US, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Netherlands, Singapore, etc where there are ample jobs and PR opportunities for Indian students. Seek the right program and the right University which matches your profile and then take a call. A good and Experienced Education Advisor will be of great help to you in advising you about options abroad. 

All the best.
