MBA Vs. MS After Engineering

MBA Vs. MS After Engineering

Nowadays, many students aim at doing an MBA. But, the question here is when this is the final goal, why are students more concerned about their UG degree? Even though, MBA is the ultimate aim, this course after a professional UG degree will add more value to the resume of candidates as against MBA after a normal UG course. In addition, professional UG courses like B. Tech/B.E, when taken from the best institutions will enable candidates to find placement opportunities.

Why MBA as against other PG degrees?

It is true that an M.S or an M. Tech degree will equip the students with strong analytical reasoning skills. On the other hand, an MBA can provide them with a perfect future in a wide range of fields like brand management, marketing, planning & strategy, management consulting, supply chain management, etc.
