It is an MBA after a B.Tech. good choice?

Hari om, you are asking a question like: "Is an MBA a good option after a B.tech?"

You must have struggled a lot to get into Engineering: writing entrance exams, attending training classes, missing a lot of cinemas, field trips, entertainments, family functions, and of course sleepless nights and other late-night experiences to get into Engineering.

Having now become an engineer, he is not happy. You want to do an MBA. Why should you do an MBA? You are now an engineer. If you are not interested in Engineering, or are interested in earning more money, you can do MBA. Not otherwise.

Hari om, you are asking a question like: "Is an MBA a good option after a B.tech?"

You must have struggled a lot to get into Engineering: writing entrance exams, attending training classes, missing a lot of cinemas, field trips, entertainments, family functions, and of course sleepless nights and other late-night experiences to get into Engineering.

Having now become an engineer, he is not happy. You want to do an MBA. Why should you do an MBA? You are now an engineer. If you are not interested in Engineering, or are interested in earning more money, you can do MBA. Not otherwise.

In MBA, all the people like BAs, BScs, B.Coms, BBA and so many others will be there besides you. If you want to do an MBA together with them, you can. But for whatever reason, if you don't like the MBA, will you do something else?

Don't chase money in life. No one settles in life for the first 10 to 12 years after completion of studies. By then life usually stabilizes, not before.

So it's up to you what you want to do with your career. However, after the MBA, you will not do any engineering work. You will only be doing administration and management. If you like them, you can go and do an MBA. Otherwise, continue with your profession of Environment. Hari om.

Any PG course should be done after obtaining 2-3 years of work experience, because it shows you exactly the path of your career. MBA is great when your focus is completely private sector jobs. But if you want a job in the government, I don't think you need to do an MBA.

PS: MBA is good, but first clarify your focus.

Have a day in New York!

If you are interested in non-technical things, then yes, an MBA from a reputable university is a very good thing. And here your B. Tech degree helps you and makes you better than other MBA students. Because technical companies want a person who has an MBA degree along with a B. TECH degree for management.

ALL THE BEST

MBA after B.Tech has become a trend among budding engineers; the statistics of the student profiles shared by the IIMs reinforce this fact. Why do people tend to do MBA even after studying engineering rigorously for 4 years? We will discuss this in detail to conclude with a better understanding of this.

In the meantime, let's take a look at the IIM Ahmedabad Graduate Management Program (PGP) student profile with the help of the following picture where 94% of students have engineering background.

Reasons why people pursue an MBA after B.Tech

  1. They find that MBA graduates sign higher paychecks than their engineering counterparts.
  2. They begin to find the study of engineering monotonous once they finish half of their B.Tech. MBA arrives like a fresh breeze.
  3. Apologies, but the level of engineering education in India has been deteriorating due to the proliferation of engineering, while management education is on a steadily advancing path.
  4. Once you have cracked JEE Main & Advanced, you will have the confidence to pass prestigious management entrance exams such as CAT, XAT, IIFT, GMAT, etc.
  5. B.Tech graduates who want to pursue a postgraduate degree but not in engineering often opt for an MBA.
  6. Some of B.Tech graduates join an MBA just to follow in the footsteps of their elders or join their friends' league.
  7. India is the largest producer of engineers; in fact, more than US + China produced engineers. Therefore, there are not enough opportunities for engineers and individuals to advance towards an MBA.
  8. If engineering is a safe bet, then an MBA is the safest bet.

What do the experts say about it?

  1. An MBA degree helps engineering graduates break out of the shell of technical jobs and move up the hierarchy by making their candidacy ideal for managerial jobs as well.
  2. The path to entrepreneurship and management goes through an MBA. An engineer can build a product, but selling it on the market is up to an MBA graduate.
  3. The world is driven by technology and all engineers need to transcend technical limits and learn the art of setting prices and marketing products. This art can be learned with an MBA.

Now I think all perspectives are clear to you on 'why do people do MBA after B.Tech'. Please let me know in the comment section if I missed any reason; I won't mind editing my answer.

There are a few points to consider here. The first and foremost of these is, why do you want to do an MBA in the first place? Are you looking to enter Financial Services or Banking? Sales of mass consumer goods? Or maybe you are looking to work with companies that hire for your leadership - track positions directly from B - School?

In each of these cases, gaining additional experience after the completion of your degree will not help you too much (with the possible exclusion of strengthening your profile based on the various metrics used by universities to call candidates for their GDPI processes).

In each of these cases, gaining additional experience after the completion of your degree will not help you too much (with the possible exclusion of strengthening your profile based on the various metrics used by universities to call candidates for their GDPI processes).

In my case, I didn't really want to join the IT company they placed me with. Therefore, I considered the MBA as the most suitable option for my personal goals.

However, after joining EY publication and completing my MBA, I realized one thing. Although I had an MBA, what I had studied during the course had almost no relevance to my work. Lacking prior experience, he had chosen subjects that sounded "glamorous", with specializations in Strategy, Marketing and Finance. Nothing to do with OB or operations. Purely academic study, which was reflected in the insights I gave to my clients. It took a while for the highly theoretical mindset of the case study to transition to a combined approach of practicality (including most important of all, politics) that generated significantly more actionable insights.

The bottom line from this was that if one is interested in entering a field such as consulting, B2B sales, IT management (or possibly even a non-founding role in a startup), a couple of years of experience will make it a world. good before going to an MBA. If nothing else, I would be better able to appreciate the course itself and make the most of the two years there (something my more experienced classmates, especially Shardul Bahuguna, will attest to).

One last thing to keep in mind. Regardless of your level of experience, most companies visiting the campus have some basic experience criteria (in terms of a minimum of 2 years, less than 1 year, etc.) that each candidate must meet. I would advise you to do some research on this before making a decision.

I hope this helps.

Yes, it would be a great choice. A large portion of students opt for distance MBA or PGDM after B.Tech as it saves a lot of time and money.

It also depends on the preferences, interests and career goals of each individual. Earning an MBA degree after B.Tech is always an advantage after an engineering degree. Also, there are many IITians who prefer to opt for an MBA after completing their engineering to upgrade their professional skills through basic management knowledge.

Personally, I got a 2-year distance MBA or PGDM from IMT CDL after 4 years of engineering. I got 70% even after being a non-business student

Personally, I got a 2-year distance MBA or PGDM from IMT CDL after 4 years of engineering. I got 70% even after being a non-business student. His digital teaching methods helped me a lot to gain experience in the subjects. IMT CDL includes various features such as EduGenie, action case studies, and an updated curriculum that really helped me during my PG diploma program.

I developed team leadership and group management qualities and am proud to choose MBA distance learning (or PGDM in this case) after Engineering.

IMT CDL helps students analyze the business environment, their interests, various business and management fields.

If you are really interested in developing management skills within yourself, then go ahead and fly higher.

1) Functions: While as an MBA graduate you would look for the business value "What", as an engineer you would focus on the "How" of those things. For example, as an MBA, you would be looking to open up new revenue streams and thereby improve revenue by x%, optimize any product, and thereby reduce loss by y%. As an engineer, you would check the technical feasibility of things and make the technical value robust and achievable in a real-time scenario.

2) Reporting hierarchy: While an MBA graduate (from top-tier institutes) would report to upper or mid-level management as they focus more on the strategic aspects of an organization, an engineer will report to a team leader , project manager and would focus on the operational aspects of an organization.

3) Salary structure: While it is a big mistake in India that MBA graduates demand more salary and therefore most of them end up doing MBA. However, it might be true that an MBA requires a higher starting salary, but the growth of a qualified technical engineer is more robust and viable than that of a businessman. Many of the major tech companies like Google, Facebook pay a higher average salary to their engineers.

4) Job opportunities: While an engineer's job opportunity is limited by their knowledge of technical skills (predominantly language, skill sets), an MBA (general MBA) generally opens up the horizons of various industries, acting as an advantage. That said, to grow in an industry, you need to be the master of one; Jack of many will get you nowhere.

I too faced the same situation and got stuck on the same question 2 years ago. Then luckily he got into Microelectronics at BITS Pilani (normally known as VLSI at most other universities). So now I think I can clear this up.

This depends on many factors.

  1. Your Job Profile - If that's demanding in the market and you have ample opportunities to learn every day, then you can get on with your job too.
  2. University Offered: If you are among the Ancient IITs, BITS Pilani / Hyderabad / Goa, IIIT Hyderabad / Bangalore / Delhi, NIT Trichy / Warangal / Surathkal / Allahabad, then c

This depends on many factors.

  1. Your Job Profile - If that's demanding in the market and you have ample opportunities to learn every day, then you can get on with your job too.
  2. University Offered: If you are among the old IITs, BITS Pilani / Hyderabad / Goa, IIIT Hyderabad / Bangalore / Delhi, NIT Trichy / Warangal / Surathkal / Allahabad, then you can think about M.tech admission as these universities will give you they will provide good opportunities for placements (if you are doing M.tech for placements with major companies). Being a student of such esteemed institutions will also open up great opportunities for you in the future.
  3. Branch Offered For M.Tech - This really matters a lot, so choose wisely. You need to gather a lot of information about the branch and its future prospects and the demands of the industry. Also, compare the list of colleges mentioned above based on the branch you are getting. If everything goes in your favor, you can definitely go for M.tech. You can easily get around 10-20 LPA placement in major companies if your B.Tech branch is CS / IT / EC / EEE.

Consider all of the above factors before joining any institution.

Well, I may not be in a position to suggest you about your future, but since your question is about obtaining an MBA, I prefer to tell you to read the answer written by Balaji Viswanathan (பாலாஜி விஸ்வநாதன்) for the question.

Why do so many Indians dream of business schools after 4 precious years of studying engineering? Why not do a graduate degree in engineering? Why study so much technical material to finally land on economics and marketing?

Why do I need to do an MBA?

After reading this, you may have an idea why you should take an MBA. Although I firmly believe that other master's degrees are equally valuable. This answer should give you an idea of ​​the benefits of an MBA, but it has not tried to show an MBA superior to other degrees. So without disrespecting other fields.

And as Sagnik also mentioned, lean is indeed a very weak word that can end your life or career.

So the only reason I mentioned the answers above is to help you get an idea about the MBA and what you can earn after completing it or in the process of completing it.

I hope that helps :)

Hey, you have to understand one thing: there is no one perfect option that will suit everyone. If you are someone who scored more than 90% on your 10th and 12th boards, as well as passing college with 9+ CGPA and scored well on the CAT exam plus the interview, then it is really beneficial for you to take an MBA.

However, if you had an academic average throughout your life, then it is recommended that you have some work experience, probably in the consulting sector. This will greatly contribute to your academic performance.

But keep in mind that the type of work you do needs to be in sync with the field in which you want to get an MBA.


But if you want to get an MBA from the US or some other foreign university, you must be giving GMAT and in this case it is highly recommended that you have enough work experience (4 years is good) before joining any program of MBA.
Foreign universities, unlike Indian universities, do not treat applicants as mere numbers, but as personalities who can bring diversity to the class.

Good luck. I hope this helps :)

It has been 4 years since you completed B. Tech. You even mentioned that you have worked for some companies but it is not worth considering the duration as a work experience for a B School. So you basically have a 4 year gap. It will be hard to justify your gap period and why an MBA in a top-tier B school interview.

If you can show any association with any kind of freelance work or with an NGO then it may work, but simply telling them that you are preparing for government work will not help.

There will be many regional B schools that will provide you with an admission, but doing an MBA from said institute will be the

There will be many regional B schools that will provide you with an admission, but taking an MBA from said institute will lead you to the same space of dissatisfaction. So I would recommend that you try harder for your government exam and pass it. Or if you are very interested in doing an MBA, I suggest you have a valid reason ready for your gap.

Best of luck.

Hello for the day!

I will give the 2 reference of my friend consider Ram and Sam.

Ram is an academically strong kid with 90% above in both 10th and 12th grade, he is interested in IT related domain so he studied at a good university in level 1 city (Mumbai) and after upon graduation, got a job on campus in information technology with a good package (4.5lacs) (by the way, 4.5 lac is more than the average package for private universities) after 2 years of corporate experience, opted for MBA from SIBM and got a job at Another Weak IT as a manager with 18 lacs package.

Now, to Sam, he was an average kid scoring 60-75% in the tenth and twelfth class and took a

Hello for the day!

I will give the 2 reference of my friend consider Ram and Sam.

Ram is an academically strong kid with 90% above in both 10th and 12th grade, he is interested in IT related domain so he studied at a good university in level 1 city (Mumbai) and after upon graduation, got a job on campus in information technology with a good package (4.5lacs) (by the way, 4.5 lac is more than the average package for private universities) after 2 years of corporate experience, opted for MBA from SIBM and got a job at Another Weak IT as a manager with 18 lacs package.

Now, for Sam, he was an average kid who scored between 60-75% in the 10th and 12th class and took up studies again from a good university in the level 1 city (Mumbai), but could not get a job in the campus due to poor performance after graduation. for work, but after 6 to 7 months of struggle, he finally studied for an MBA and got the NEW IIM and landed a position at the IIM with a pack of 14 lacquers.

After this CASE, we can see that they will get a job of 10+ lacs after MBA, but RAM was 26 and SAM was 25, so both will be roughly the same package after a few years and NOW you can decide to keep it in these cases.

Thanks

SBM (MBA aspirant)
