Engineers joining management give multitasking ability for engineers. For example if an engineer has done MBA for acquire management skills, get job in technical department of any company. That engineer can also handle management responsibility as well. This helps to increase their salary package, so national economy as well. In the competitive market scenario companies require multitasking employees.

This is one of the reasons for engineers joining management. After joining management, engineer's technical skills leaved behind, it is a myth. Engineers joining management are not a national waste. It is an advantage for our nation. Management is very important part of professional life of engineer. Most of the engineers joint management courses for getting jobs in bank. Joining management after doing engineering shows disliking or less interest toward engineering. So living engineering is better option than doing it with less interest.

Well first of all there is a huge differences and shortcomings lies in the education system. There is a hype of some professions and institutes against child's interest. Students are not counselled according to their wishes means they are unwillingly made to join competition and be a part of race usually in engineering colleges (many of them) for graduation and engineering seeks core knowledge of the subject. By the time a student could be of acquiring different tastes not mainly in finance and marketing but in any other desired field he/she wishes to be because money is not always the thing.

I think management degree helps you a lot in the future not at the entry level. Everyone is thinking that doing MBA will develop managerial skills. As a graduate you are not given a role to manage people in a company. It is the passion which drive us. So my concern is do MBA from a premiere Bschool will land you in a good place in this field.

Coming to MTech- it is designed for the people who are intelligent's unlike MBA. The people who are more interested in technology and for the people who want to do research it will be helpful. Think twice before taking a decision. It will decide your future.

Hi to all,

Now this is really a very genuine thing happening around. According to me btech is done mainly by the student who are interested in engineering but for increment of salary they simply wanted to go for management.

And this well known that btech after MBA does not yield the same kind of job as after btech. So its not at all advantage for doing b.tech and then MBA. Engineer students should contribute their technical skill which is required. For ex a mechanical engineer should contribute in mechanic world rather in the business world. And if is this so then its totally a bullshits. Thats my thought thank you everyone.

Hi friends. In my point of view, what does the engineering people do after education ?, they don't apply what they have learn anyway they are going to learn new tech in training and many study core engineering and move to IT. It is not the degree we choice it is the carrier to keep in mind.

Yes it is right that today most of the students after doing M-Tech, are doing MBA. It is too good because Management studies improves our skill, leadership as well as Engineering improves our thinking skills and invent new gadgets and many other daily useful things. So I think that doing MBA after M-Tech. Is a good option.

I think it depends on the person whether he wants to go for MBA or m. Tech or whatever, so I won't say that the engineers are wasting their time. But I would like to add that the students from IITs or other government colleges are wasting governments resources by doing MBA after B-Tech. Government spends more than 1000 billion on each IIT every year so that the students those who have strong technical knowledge can contribute to the technical growth of the country but the students go and work in the banks. So they are wasting government's resources.

Hello dear friends! This is very good topic for discussion and it will help many confusing guys. I want to say that from ENGINEERING course we can get good technical knowledge and from MBA course we can get proper managerial skills. For starting the good industry in market its must to know both of these, technical knowledge as well as managerial skill. So as per my view its not time wasting to do MBA after doing B-Tech.

Good morning, afternoon, evening what is it.

Now just frankly speaking in engineering students are not getting enough salary as they desire. So then after spoiling 4 years of life they decide to do MBA. I agree that they have great knowledge but what is use of that knowledge in MBA. In in INDIA approx. 80% of MBA seats is occupied by engineering student and according to survey 70% placement are in banking, consulting companies so now you tell what is use of technical mind in engineering. So I give my opinion that select only one field and do concentrate your mind on only that thing and do hard work as much as possible. I am sure you will definitely get success in your life.

I want to express my point of view, I think management is what comes naturally and technical thinking comes with deep learning. So by selecting MBA studies as a engineering student is to ignore the basic definition of engineering.

Specially for earning good money students get attracted towards management studies but reality is that technical thinking of engineers are wasted by management studies.

Hello! Myself Rajesh.

After your 10th class one has no idea of engineering or any other studies. But start to prepare for the entrance exams iit, aieee. But after completion of the intermediate one should have some idea of his future studies. First if he is interested in technical side he can go for engineering. Second if he is interested in management side he can simply do BA/BBA/BCOM etc. Saving 1 year of time and much money. And also they can concentrate on the MBA entrance exams and get seat in great MBA institutes.

Now we shall talk about the one who joins the engineering feeling interest in engineering first. And then he changes his min to MBA due to some reasons that some one says that much more money could be earned by doing MBA etc. To those people I would like to say that you have two options to continue to your higher studies.

One is M TECH/M. S the other is MBA. Going to MBA completely changes your atmosphere of study and analyzing view. But m tech provides you to improve your b tech knowledge with same atmosphere. Also you should face some pressure preparing for MBA entrance exams and engineering things simultaneously. Also you may face troubles coping after going to MBA college.

So it is better to decide first to go to which side technical or management. And then to continue. I would say that doing MBA after doing engineering is not at all bad unless and until you decide to waste 1 year and money you spend for engineering, and finally all the skills you learn from 4 years of your engineering.

Greetings ! I am a Engineering student (BE Electrical) from one of the best colleges in India and in my opinion pursuing MBA is not a bad idea. For those who think that this is a wastage of your 4 years of college then think of some brilliant personalities like Bill Gates, Steve jobs, Mark Zuckerberg who didn't complete their Engineering degrees either, So don't kid yourself by saying that we are great technicians. As a matter of fact Engineering in India is taught in it's theoretical aspect and student lacks innovative ideas. Ironically, we wasted 4 years in engineering as the same knowledge could be achieved by pursuing diploma.

Hello Buddies.

The opinions which is shared above is correct for someone and its not correct for some other. What I would like to tell you is one can opt for any higher degree its only based on their interest and skills. Because they are the one who has to work in their position and get excelled. If one does not posses any kind of skills in Management and still if he does MBA. Where does he will lead finally. Finally one has to asses their own skills and ideas and need to take proper step after their graduate degree.

Hi everyone. It was nice to know all the students opinion. Actually all the persons who gave their opinions here are correct according to their perspective. The thing is this.

We have many MBA courses. Say if one has to for MBA in Accounting the obviously a guy with accounts background say CA guys can survive very nicely and can go for a very good job. Or at-least get a decent job for sure.

For MBA finance person having a commerce or economics background can do.

So if an engineer has to do MBA then he/she too has lot of options.

1. MBA in supply chain management.
2. MBA in marketing.
3. MBA in operations.

These are fields which I assure that engineering students have upper hand.

So its all up to individuals and they have to be wise in selecting their MBA.

Good evening friends most of my friends here think that pursuing MBA after B-Tech is good, some corporate CEO's have also done the same thing, but the question should we follow others or should we set a new trend, why do we opt for MBA, cause it will give us a job, good salary anything else? but again the question arises is that why we did B.Tech then? Why waste 4 years of our life? we need to graduate then we could have done that simply by pursuing B.Com/B.A. /BBA etc.

If we would have pursued any of this subject except B. Tech then it would have costed us 1 year less of our life or in other words we would have saved 1 year of our life, but this is not what we wanted, what we wanted was that to be a successful engineer, working in some good reputed company, with high salary, but now a days our if we go searching for an engineer we don't have to go very far, we may find him sitting beside us, I mean today the number of engineer s are increasing but the job remains constant, but this does not mean that we should change our line.

We should keep on trying harder and harder and I am sure it will bear sweet fruits.

Myself Richa. Even I have done BE but I totally disagree that its a waste of time. Though I have given my 4 years for BE. But even for B.Sc or any graduate who has given 3 years for the course do not have any subjects or course as there is in MBA. So it totally depends on a person who want to opt for MBA because its totally new for both. If you have skills and interest you can opt it at any age.

Good Evening All. I was in vague mind before I visited to this site and read all your opinions. It feels very happy that all you people gathered such a valuable opinions which really helps many students specifically grads who are in confusion what should be the continuity if there is no job in hand. If we opt higher studies what could be the choice MBA which fascinates for jobs or M.Tech /M.S.

I was thinking to take up MBA am a B-Tech graduate (aeronautical) and couldn't get job over a year. But changing the stream or deviating from it completely without prior experience really lands many students in trouble. As the work atmosphere and the learned concepts really differ in practicality. Now I changed my opinion for pursuing MBA straight away without any prior experience every graduate should go for job and gain experience and should know the company atmosphere and standards depending on the requirement taking the decision for doing MBA or M.Tech really helps him/her to mold their path. I feel that before taking up higher studies student (graduate) should have experience of practicality it really helps.

I have knowledge of my field but I am not able to decide where I fit. And management is altogether a different thing and its there in me. So basically an engineer can do anything is what I feel but what is the most or close to the most appropriate thing an engineer should do ?

And yes further studies is obviously an option and you have all the time in this world to continue your studies but still I feel stuck up at this point even after completing my degree with first class.

There is lot of conversation on the techie guy and MBA graduates, I would like to add a point being a technical graduate one have the good knowledge of technical things and we know that operation is involved in in every field. So after MBA it would be easy to know the whole operation of business and if we are connecting the operation with the technical stuffs then it provide an edge. Moreover it helps one to know the business world and the technical part of it.

Hello all I feel it also depends on the person's interest, there are times when a student in engineering college while managing college festivals and other events realizes that his managerial skills are better than his technical interest which can make him to choose MBA as his masters degree rather than M.Tech.

Person would have chosen M.Tech if he would have found himself interested in technical things more and want to be more technically strong.

Frankly degree does not matter whether its MBA or M.Tech but our interest and hard work in that field matters the most.

Hello friends, you are having different prospect & good thinking. Here I am sharing my view.

According to my opinion both may seem different field, but both are mutually correlated as interpreted. The students doing engineering are sharpened by their skills (obviously I am talking about the laboring students who have learned their subject) , but when leaving college when you join any company, you will expect there different scenario, where lot of people are involved in doing a task. There require a managerial skill which can be polished through management studies. Also doing management you will get extra skills as well as you will add some more advantage in your organisation. So doing management is a must if you want to really see yourself up in your career ladder and to survive in the competitive environment as well.

First of all I want to make one point is whatever we study it never goes wasted, with this point I want to say as doing MBA degree after engineering is just sharpening the managerial skills in someone after his/her technical education. And most of the MNCs today run on engineers and to tackle this crowd person with technical background along with MBA degree is the best choice. The fact is person who completed his/her engineering is comfortable with aptitude which brings him/her on the way of MBA so easily that's why today 80% of management seats in Management institutes are occupied by engineering students. To deal with engineers and engineering work in MNCs Manager with technical background is always a preferable option for MNCs.

First, understand that there is no point comparing M.Tech and MBA. Both are specialised degrees and have value in their respective fields. Both M. Tech and MBA provide excellent career options and have gained importance in last few years. M.Tech or MBA is always an additional advantage to an engineer whether it is in terms of knowledge, experience or seniority.

Whether it be a manufacturing, IT or R&D driven organisation, there would be requirements for both M.Techs and MBAs. The former would be more of a subject matter specialist, while the latter would handle product marketing, sales, project management, human resources, IT process, consulting or customer service management.

Doing M.Tech in a particular field will definitely make you more valuable to a company that has business profile of that field. MBA, on other hand, will give you a totally different business perspective and is broader in scope.

Choice is entirely up to you.

Ideally, you should make the choice on the basis of your capabilities, career goals and interests. If you want to continue your career in technical field, M. Tech is the right choice for you. You can even switch to teaching or research. But if you want to work in the industry, MBA is the way to go. MBA is a management course that will enhance your managerial, communication and presentation skills.

After MBA, you get the entry to the field of business and administration where you can go in for options like marketing, sales, human resources and operation management.

Specifically, M.Tech is suitable for a product-based industry where technical skills are required. MBA is more suitable for a service- and customer-oriented industry. Engineering graduates having a management degree are perfect for front-end sales, field applications and customer facing jobs. However, if an organisation is innovation hungry, pure engineering with master's specialisation is a lethal combination.

Hello friends.

I have just read all your opinions and comments of this interesting topic. In my opinion when an engineering student finishes their studies and attends a placement in that interview selecting a good engineering student is given only to those MBA graduates HR. Either that MBA HR may completed Eng/Arts it does not matter. Even though an engineering student works mostly nowadays in most of the MNC companies they can give a chance to that engineering candidates also know to choose a same engineering student as a fresher to his/her company.

Why they are giving those work to an MBA graduates to select right person. Because after completing MBA they will able to improve their skills like taking proper decisions, judging a right person for their company, handling and efficiently solving the problems. But these skills can be improved only if a student puts a complete interest in MBA. Because this MBA is not only business and admin but also helps to improve the creative skills, logical thinking etc. You have to manage the studies as well as you have to attend many interesting programs (extra curricular activities). So here itself you are able to manage both. So surely you will able to manage and tackle the problems in a company or in any bank sectors.

So it not depends on Arts /Engineering student will perform well while doing MBA course. Mainly for engineers who are going to pursue MBA course, while doing engineering itself that person will have some skills like logical, analytic, specially TIME MANAGEMENT and also have participated in many symposium functions. This is more than enough. But to gain more salary those candidates can have some years of experience in their fields such as core/software companies. After gaining some knowledge if they pursue MBA it is very value and also puts more interest in their studies.

They can easily manage the problems when they are facing during those MBA period of time. So friends be cool, Don't dump all in your mind, Any thing we learn it will not go waste. Even though if we not get a proper job now, but one day those things we learnt will surely help us in future. Hope for the BEST always in our life.

Hii. I m Mr Namasya das. I totally agree with the topic that engineering students are wasting their time in management studies. If someone will study MBA after engineering, then definitely he will get the job as a manager or anything related to management. Then why he did engineering?what is the use of the techniques that he learned during 4 year engineering. If everybody will do MBA after engineering then who will be S/W developer, S/W tester, maintenance engineer, civil engineer etc etc. There is number of post for engineers in MNCs & Indian companies. Good future also there for engineers and good salary is there.

But I think if you want to do a MBA after engineering then do it after 3 to 4 years experience in your domain. It may help you for your hike in position as well as salary. Thats it.

No I don't agree at all. Management is a different chalk and cheese than engineering. Also in India most B schools are providing MBA degree to freshers which is a very wrong trend. Infact Management requires you to have some skill set and practical understanding of organization and organizational behavior.

Most Engineer have a technical job involving to complete certain task with a deadline. Involvement is with task and focus is on getting work done perfectly. But management is more to getting the task done within time, cost and manpower and getting a profit out of it you have to make decision for a group and make profit for the firm. Infact this is the reason why most career counselled recommend an Executive MBA degree where people have some work experience.

Engineering firms are the major shareholders of the economic world and these are dominated of course by Engineers so a engineer with few years of work ex and a MBA degree is prone to get better result.

According to me engineering and management are analogous. Engineering is defined as the field which applies practical and scientific knowledge in building, construction of different machines with effective time utilization. On the other hand in management we apply the basic principles of management that are practical and scientific for building an effective organizational structure. So the basic idea is the same. So engineers have an edge above all others in management field also.

Hi friends this is a very hot topic nowadays as IIM and others institutes also started giving additional points to non engineers to maintain diversity. This directly shows that engineers are doing better while getting admission in MBA courses. Now use of engineering. I think nowadays companies are not traditional one people need different approach to understand it, and I think technical approach is what makes a company efficient which quality lacks in non engineer. If you can think a better approach for a problem then you truly deserve to be a manager.

Engineering is not only studying heavy books and applying complex formulas in examination. Engineering teaches a lot of things. One of them is how to manage time and resources. During a period of small time we have to read a lot of stuff and at the same time students were also involved in extracurricular activities. As the statistics suggest almost every examination like UPSC, CAT is rocked by engineers. The topper of CAT-2009 (100% ile) was an engineer from IIT Bombay. As you must have heard of last night studies in which we read almost entire syllabus in one night which show that at the time of need we can push the boundaries and get the job done. A good manager is also a person who can manage the things according to the constraints of time and resources which goes in favour of engineers.

In engineering career we are also given responsibilities like represent the class, organize several kinds of events and hold meaningful posts which not only enhance the personality but also develop a unique trade of managing people around.

Engineers have been employed in several domains ranging from core sectors to IT sectors to business firms which reflect the capability to blend in any environment which is the biggest virtue and requirement to be a good manager.

Hello everybody.

MBA vs Engg topic never actually has an end because d non engineering people always feel why are the engineering students taking away what they have rights on ! The word "Management" makes it obvious that it is meant for a commerce student who is presumed to be good with all skills required for an MBA.

But see the other side, engineers can't say they have an edge over the commerce people because some skills they gain, some skills they lack too (and also the vice versa, of course!).

A student realizes after joining an engineering college that it is not fit for him, he leaves it mid way, or finishes it somehow.

It doesn't mean doing a course in management is a get-away decision.

What if he had realized mid way in the course he has those skills to excel in leadership, communication skills, the most importantly the adequate skills required for doing M. B. A (I said adequate and not all the skills required).

He will obviously opt for management for his rest of the career option, without keeping salary boosts and missing an engineering degree placement in mind, he would look forward to work, where he excels and exceeds, and not where he has to work as a machine on a machine.

Hello! as this topic is debating hard. I want to ask a question to all the management students. Be true. Are the technical skills really helpful in management studies?

An engineering student deals with all mathematical and technical studies. What the shit he will use them in marketing and finance? You may give me one or two satisfactory reason of doing MBA after engineering, but it won't make any difference as everything have both positive and negative aspects. Most of the times they are present in unequal proportion. If you are tall, skinny, fat etc you have some advantages as well as disadvantages but you convince yourself by pointing only the positive sides. So don't give me some reasons that depicts the use of technology in this management world. Don't forget you can sort out good qualities even from your wife too. I think a person doing MBA after BBA is quite good than that of doing MBA after engineering. What's the use of learning damn headache subjects of engineering for learning economics? just a long-cut method to reach your goal. I'm excluding people who are goalless. And the debating topic is over if you are only interested in making money.

Ultimately it's useless to choose engineering for graduation if you are planned to opt for management.

In my opinion Engineers do MBA only after having 2 years of experiences. As Engineers are good at analytic and they have technical knowledge. So, they better understand the problems of the management. Engineers are inspirable manager who not only motivates the employees but also a leader. While in the case of Commerce student they may or may be a good motivator and decision taker. Because they don't have technical skills and analytic skills as that of an Engineer. So, don't compare an Engineer with commerce graduates.

Hello friend, this is really a good topic. According to me every person must have the good quality of leadership and managing capability they may be engineering student or else. In my opinion they should go for managing study which is very much necessary in every field and also they will get more prefer in any companies and also get more money.

My point here would be, you are all talking about working for someone else. To me that's what really sucks. After working through all the math and science - is it possible to support yourself in engineering without working for someone else? When can YOU be the manager/engineer? It just kills me when I see friends of mine running a pizza place or landscaping company making the same money as I do! Here "WE" have MBA's and Engineering degrees and possess knowledge which far surpasses the pizza owner, but yet with all the tax deductions probably kills "US" in overall income. Just unbelievable. Don't get me wrong I make a good salary and enjoy what I do, but pay should be much higher.

All your comments are appreciative. I will share my view point. Management and technology are the two parts of a coin. A person should have both knowledge of technology as well as management for developing into a well developed managerial person. As both this should go hand in hand for the success of the company. Remember a engineer can become a MBA person. But not a MBA person can become a engineer. Both the type of people are working for money. The technical people starve to get information about the management side for doing their part successfully.

Hi every-one,

It is quite interesting to read and go through the whole discussion about engineering vs management. And it would be of worth to mention about the professional prejudice amid different professional groups; favoring for self profession while rued others. But it is also understood that finally the boll goes in favor of engineering profession as a matter of fact that management can't stand without the add of engineering skills while on the other hand engineering can have it's individual surveillance independent of management as is evident from the fact that B-Tech/B. E + MBA is more widely accepted compared to other professional combination provided that commerce/economic student can also seek a marked position in the race but ultimately it is the sound engineering skills which adds to the economy and efficacy of the system and in the absence of good engineering skills the whole quantum of management and economy (though take time but) ultimately comes to the ground. Never forget it is the engineering which gives the birth to the green revolution adding incredible worth to agricultural economy which is still the single most important contributing factor to our domestic GDP.

Not all engineering graduates opting to do MBA have the same reasoning.

Some recognize midway through their engineering course that they are climbing up the wrong tree - switching over to management stream after completing the graduation is an escape route for them.

Some others look far beyond the entry level to the industry and dream of the top slots that they want to reach before they retire - for them doing an mba is a shortcut to realize their dream - many of these may not straightaway go for MBA after graduation but after going through the mill say two or three years would be ideal.

In either case it is not a waste of time - in the first case industry is spared of some bad engineers and in the other case they get managers with some value addition !

And Importance of mgt then let me state do Mgt where theirs no institute no engg. to built n create things beyond your imagination.. n only mgt dept.. what are u gonna manage??!!!

I have read all opinion and I want to ask a question from engineering student that what they understand themselves only they have a better and good analytical knowledge. For your information a C.A. is a most preferred course by a commerce student and the course is one of the toughest course in the world, if have some doubt go on Wikipedia and make your mind clear, a C.A. has a tremendous analytical knowledge because he is lonely responsible for the whole accounting and finance system in a firm, there is a lot of principles have to be taught in the subject of accounts.

Now comes on the subject economics, an economy is the backbone of a nation, the whole system works under this economy, no any body remains untouchable from this even you engineers and also all of us, an economy influence each and every section of society. It is more clear by this sentence when a country suffer from huge economical crisis then the economist are the only persons who looks for it and make every thing stable by their great skills. In economics we study about the rational management of scarce resources that is very essential for any country and data analysis is the core of economics.

The value of economics in management is too high as you can see the subject economics is taught in all MBA institutions all over the world not physics and chemistry. If a student of science stream wants to do management he/she will have to study economics, finance and business relating subject. So, how can you arise your finger on a commerce student that they have a lack of analytical knowledge? Stop your ego and think again!

But my friend the real engineers have never change their profession, only for the seek of earning money in Management, they know they are built for the design, development, construction, maintenance etc etc. Not for banking/ finance etc.

And behind every IITan the Government expenses Rs. 10.00 lac during his B.Tech. So is it justified that a student betrays his profession only for Money. ?

Hello everyone! Engineering is the study that depicts a person to construct to maintain and to deliver something!one must go four years of Engineering course in any of the specialization either may be of computers or electronics or civil etc etc!Here The point to be noted is, through engineering we can only develop or design something either of software or some skyscraper or some bio chips whatever!Hence The students who undergone graduation can be assigned only these areas of interest and earns income!

But in the real world scenario, Any Organisation needs a perfect MANAGEMENT STRATEGY and some financial policies to kick start its economic income!Hence Any companies needs the candidates with profiles adding Technical with managerial skills and if needed financial analytic skills put forth the results inclined sharply!

As discussed earlier the role of development needed for the company for their repository benefits and management role needed for income benefit hence so as observably the students must attract to management studies after graduation degree!

In this context I day one must prefer management after working as a developer for some years of experience gained and then for out -of -the box thinking they must prefer management !

So, students are not wasting time in Management studies, they have other ways to go get .

Hi all,
Every person in the world has got the equal brain. There is no such engineering vs commerce grad. Exists. There are different view points to look at the scenario. All the type of people are dependent on each other. Without engineer best financial systems, online banking, online transaction etc. For that Engineers also require finance knowledge, laws, rules and regulations etc. Even for betterment of this process, I believe, Engineers after MBA can manage such activities better way with the technology add-on. Commerce grad. has plus point of their commerce background, as they know certain details from the graduation itself. And finally all games runs behind the money, such as pay pal, online payment, security, etc. Sometimes, Definitely Engineering grad. with experience and MBA can boost the activities technically and management perspective. :).

According to me management and engineering are not two diverse fields. Both require mutual cooperation to be productive. Engineers and mangers are both problem solvers. And both need analytical skills to solve the problems. And in one angle engineering involves management and management involves engineering with one thing in common "getting things done in easier way". Engineers does it technically and mangers does it economically. Now a days there is no room for ignorance especially in the era of fast flowing information. There is no point saying why an engineer can't excel in management with greater edge of problem solving capabilities than others, because application of technical knowledge involves great deal of analysis and logical deductions manipulating every possibility of outcome with customer requirements. So a good engineer is always a good manager of resources. So engineering students are not wasting their time in management, in fact managerial skills are inbuilt in them and they expect to take it to next level with advanced study of management.

Hello everyone.

I appreciate the efforts put in by engineers to get into best MBA institutions. But I am not able to understand one thing that why engineers get job in the finance industry. If we look at all the best mba institutes, maximum number of jobs are offered in either consulting or banking/finance. I don't understand how an engineer is in a better position to do equity market analysis, analyse macro and micro economic situation etc. Than a commerce graduate. Doesnt anybody think there is something really wrong with our education system ? The format of the entrance tests itself gives an advantage to all engineering students.

Do you really think that an engineering grad can analyse balance sheet as well as a commerce grad ? They don't know anything about accounts and still they are able to bag roles in investment banking/treasury/risk advisory etc. I mean I don't doubt their calibre but I really think that if business schools take commerce grads and groom them then they will be anytime better than engineering grads. Please don't tell me that engineering students are smarter than commerce grads because if they were really smart they should have known their interest before choosing engineering as a career.

P. S. - I am obviously talking about mba in finance which is highly preferred by mba aspirants. My intention is not to start any "commerce vs engineer" topic but I am really appalled by the way our education system works.

Hi, Everybody. I have gone through the comments from all of you.

In my opinion, choosing B-Tech + MBA is the best combination. Only thing one must do is to pursue MBA after having some work experience in engineering domain, if you really want to become a real business admin. Its quiet simple, how can one manage the process when he has no root level knowledge of the same. No doubt people doing B. Tech. + MBA in continuity and are being offered lucrative packages. That is good. But what makes you best is practice, as it is the only way to perfection. Their is big differences b/w Practical & theoretical knowledge. Imagine, if you have been given notes to fly a boeing without having any base practices and all. Its not that much difficult, though its not that much easier.

I hope all of you can grasp my ideology behind all this. No job can be compared because nowadays Engineering professionals are getting almost equivalent salaries that of MBA. What really matters where you have found your interests.

So in whole, I would say one must pursue MBA after having some work experience as an engineer. Only than individual acting as a manager would be able to understand the mind, capabilities of his down team.

Well, this is my opinion. Rest depends on individuals.

Best of luck everybody.

An MBA is an excellent addition to an engineering degree, and is never a bad decision. Most engineers will find themselves in a position where advancement is difficult without a graduate degree, whether it be an MBA or engineering. I strongly disagree with the comments about wasting time focusing on MBA after an engineering degree. The experience, technical knowledge and critical thinking skills developed throughout the engineering curriculum combined with business and management aspects of the MBA pave the road for a very successful career(with much hard work of course).

As for getting into finance or non-engineering related careers after that I say go for it if you find the right position, but most post Engg. to MBA graduates stay in the engineering field in upper management positions, usually well compensated ones. If your looking to be working directly with new product design and actual engineering concepts I would reccomend sticking with graduate studies in engineering.

On another note, I have friends that have went into law, medical, business and consulting after their engineering degrees. There are so many different roads you can take. So make sure to do your research and choose one that will be the best fit for you.

P.S. Knowledge is never "wasted", no matter what path you've taken!

According to me management studies is not for commerce students it is not compulsion that only commerce background person can do an MBA. Management is that subject that I think is very necessary in every field it is engineering or whatever else. Management teaches us how to manage the things now a days in engineering their are various technology invented which I think is not possible to apply in engineering if the engineer don't know how to manage the new technology.

Thus, after engineering doing MBA is beneficial for engineers.

In my opinion the technical and management aspects of life go hand in hand. The decision of whether an engineer should go for an MBA or not depends entirely on the interests and capability of the person. An engineer can excel in his field and may earn more than what a manager does but the vice versa is also true so salary should not be the deciding factor in this case. The engineer should take his decision based on what he really wishes to be doing in his life. If your interest is hardcore technical you might end up not even finishing your MBA and bail out in midway of the course.

Be a good engineer rather than a bad manager. On the other hand if you are genuinely interested in management and see yourself as a better manager than go for an mba. Even though an mba doesnt guarantee you success nor is it essentially required to be a good manager but you can gain structured learning from an mba program, try out your skills in a safe environment before you actually jump in the corporate world, learn from your peers, gain from their experiences from different fields and make excellent connections that will help you in your future endeavours. So to sum it up I will say the decision is on an individual basis and you can just give a simple yes/no answer for each engineer.

Hello friends.

This fact usually depend upon ones intrest, in 90's engg graduates are limited and most of them get placed, but now the scenario have changed, booming of engg colleges lead more unwanted engineers, and the industries need not need them, at this chance most of them prefer MBA and Mtecs or MS (MS is not popular but within 3 years MBA aspirants should decrease and MS will conquer) , after taking MBA the engg graduates are placed with a good amount of salary package, because he is an engineer+manager, thus experience increase and a huge salary package is offered. If he/she takes MTech he is not able to get this much salary only qualification and he/she must attend many examinations to get deviation from teaching field such as research centers.

Therefore those who completed engineering from good universities such as IIT must go to Mtechs and you are in need of our countrys development, others may prefer MBA, engineering graduates from poor universities will not crack MBA exams easily, they are equal to other graduates, if you are going for MBA or Mtech please prefer good universities, getting admission to IIM's are little difficult or you may try MAT/their are also colleges offering MBA for experienced professionals and only for engg graduates, therefor the decision must be taken by YOU.

One having both technical n managerial skill can handle an organisation efficiently without depending much on others. They can understand n tackle both technical n managerial problems efficiently.

I think these thngs happen due to lack of confidence or communication skills. Around us only, we can find some examples that in spite of being technically strong, they don't get what they deserv. So, where is the problem? I think management studies does not affect your technical knowledge, rather it enhances your skill, because now you have both skills, management as well as technical.

So, if an engineer is close to perfection, then he should try to make his own field perfect rather interfering in management studies.

More and more engineering graduates are taking up postgraduate studies in management because of a perception that one can more easily get a job if one has a management degree in addition to an engineering degree and that there are more possibilities in getting higher paying jobs in the field of management. The engineering studies equip a student to do well in any entrance examination for as well as through a management course. The combination of an engineering degree with a management postgraduate degree helps one to do well in the profession as such.

However, in my view, it is also because the engineering teachers are not making the engineering studies sufficiently exciting and the engineering students are not being made aware of a) the excitement there is in careers of engineering and b) that careers in engineering can also be monetarily very rewarding and satisfying.

At the site what to do, when to do, whrere to do, how to do all decisions we only have to take, neither a manager nor a person with an M. B. A. Degree will teach. Hence, I think an M. B. A.

For any foundation your base should be strong, and engineering provides us with this as in engineering we learn technology and in MBA we learn how to implement these technology in various aspects of organization.

Technology is advancing rapidly and engineers/technologists are the pioneer of this rapid technological advancement, besides this it is true that to work in a organization some basic/fundamental managerial skills are required. Now the topic is "engineers are wasting time doing MBA"it sounds that engineers are doing MBA that does'n work for their career, but it is not true because if we look at the statistics then we can see that most of the students who are getting admitted in IIM's or B-Schools are from engineering background, and they are able to complete MBA, and are highly successful-so it depicts that "they are not wasting time doing MBA". The main stream discipline is engineers is engineering/technology. So I think they should concentrate on technology, and it's good to have few subjects on fundamentals/basics on management in syllabus of engineering. So that they can put their technical skill in a organization efficiently and effectively, and our society will be benefited from technological advancement more.

Engineering students are not waisting their time they know their better choice for future. In any organisation or company technical knowledge not enough to handle all the situation. They need well leadership, good managing ability to solve this challenge.

Hi friends, According to me I feel there is nothing wrong in an engineering student obtaining a MBA degree. MBA will actually polish their skill set. Along with their technical skills they get to learn management, leadership, organisation etc. So with both technical and managerial abilities they can even start up their own firms. It doesn't mean that only with a MBA degree you can start your business but if engineering students are interested in getting an MBA degree there is no harm.

Good evening every body. I think this is right, engineers is wasting their time in management, now technology is growing fast day by day, world needs high skilled engineers, it doesn't mean man can growth after MBA. Growth is depend upon their knowledge not their degree. Degree has values for those who don't have capability to reach higher post in organization and one more thing management skills not come by taking MBA degree, it is depend upon the persons. For example most of our political leader does not have any management degree but they are running our country. So management degree does not need for engineering students.

In my views, engineering study is required to tackle the top level of the management studies. Also engineering students having more knowledge to manage any type of company. It is also enhance our skills, personality, wisdom, thinking power to put our brain in any type of corporate world. In this modern era, we engineering students urged to persuading management studies. Also we will get more power and money after doing management studies. We will be also more secure after management studies.

What I think is that, Engineering and Management are like brothers. Without the technology knowledge we cannot manage an organisation. So they are co-related. D reverse without d knowledge of management we cant improve our position in this world.

The person who gets in into MNC as software trainee doesn't want to stay just there!he wants to grow and reach the top level of that venture. !For this he must have managerial skills. !but I don't say that you need always a degree in management for that. You gonna learn it over the time through experience and observation of the trends in corporate world!.

So the bottom line is the if there well and good if not then also not bad!.

Engineering students in fact chosen their career as engineers, should go well in their path. Doing MBA lies apart. But since our country need its mind power to be displayed, engineers should do lot in their core to get more advanced technological advancement. Hence my opinion is that as engineers they should contribute to their area.

Studying MBA after B.TECH is not a bad idea at all. But the thing which effects the decision what we made was the choice of branch in MBA. So if you choose a right choice then you will become the leader in both technical and management business.

Good morning to one and all. I am here to express my opinion about the topic.

Most of the engineering graduates have proper knowledge about there future and what they want to do in future. But having technical knowledge is not enough they should be skilled in management too. Management studies not only improves the leadership qualities but also it helps the employee to overtake the problem during crisis by properly managing the company orteam. I accept with one of my friend's opinion that having two three subjects on management it can make an engineering graduate to have some basic knowledge about management.

So I don't think engineering students are wasting time in management studies.

Although there are many other ways for the engineering graduates to go most of them opt for management. Up to me I feel that there is no need for an engineering graduate to go for MBA when they have 1 or 2 management subjects during their graduation.

Hello good evening everyone according to me engineering students are not wasting their time for management studies, that is because till graduate level they are only with the technical aspects and later they are willing to know about the marketing, sales, dealing people in the society. So I do not support that they are wasting their time.

Good morning to one and all present here. I'm not going to lecture about this topic I just want to convey my thoughts about this topic in front of you. If engineering studies may waste their time means no more engineering college and courses would not be developed. Each and every students can have a knowledge about what they will do and what they are doing.

Engineering studies provide the knowledge as well as leadership among different categories. So my opinion is engineering studies may not waste their time it may utilise their own time. Thank you.

For our growing infrastructure. Technology, Industry, Engineering and management are both important. For the development of the country. Its not important to make a building but also important to manage them for efficient and effective working of the building. For this we require both engineering and management.

I agree to my friends views, with that I would like to add something new that we need to understand that the sea changes. The transformation from regulation to liberalization, from protection to globalization, from planned economy to market-oriented economy all demand a new approach to deal with all types of problems. So to cope and equip our self we need to have managerial skills by doing management courses only.
