A large number of students pursue MBA after engineering. It is essential that you don’t blindly follow the trend and plan your career well. Judging the pros and cons is always recommended.
The trend of B.E., B. Tech and M. Tech followed by MBA has become quite common. Many students include several years of work experience after their engineering and then pursue MBA. Engineers from nearly all streams can choose MBA, but some of the fields that are most beneficial include – computer science, IT, electrical engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering etc.
Young professionals believe that only an engineering degree would not help them build a fruitful career. Thus, to succeed in their professional life students pursue MBA after engineering. This gives them an edge over those who just have an engineering degree. The MBA degree also bestows a chance of rising to managerial positions in software and IT firms.
Also a lot of students are choosing international MBA or two/ three continent MBA programmes. This gives them an opportunity to understand the work ethics of different regions which they can easily incorporate in their life.
Streamlining your interests is very important. Also make sure that your engineering degree and the specialization of MBA are in sync. For example – a mechanical engineering pursuing MBA in health management would be disastrous. Before making the final choice, candidates need to assess why they want to do MBA. Shifting their interest from engineering to MBA – finance, HR, marketing, insurance etc. is a big step and you need to be fully prepared. The trend of working for a couple of years before doing MBA is also on the rise. It gives you time to prepare for CAT and gauge the market needs as well. MBA in technology management, MBA in engineering operations, MBA in telecom management, MBA telecommunications are some of the options that students can opt for after engineering.
