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.

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.

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.

Hai I m here to share my views about the topic. If one choose engineering as his/her profession, then why should he goes to MBA? its really a foolishness. After engineering the person is ready for his specialisation and no need to get any managerial skills from any institutes, it comes to him without any practice.

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.

What generally you think of this reviews. I think and to say frankly I always doubted what to do after my graduation. Even now I am not yet concluded. But to say frankly both these M.Tech and MBA are the only choices for us to get professionalized. The world is updating day by day and why isn't our study courses. I think one new course should be developed to us in order to be professionalized.

Get an engineering degree and top it up with an MBA from a premier B-School. That's the classic recipe for corporate success. Not surprisingly then, a majority of Indian CEOs have taken this predictable route to the echelons of corporate power.

Hey Hi I'm a[chemical] Grad 2012 pass out. I want to do MBA after gaining some good work experience as it always helps me in MBA . From last one year I failed getting a good job as I'm technically weak and I think I'm good at managerial skills. So thing is now whether i should start preparing for GMAT now as Couldn't get a job from last year or should take up some course like SAP and start working on it and later after couple of years should I do MBA ?
I'm pretty confused guys . Could you suggest me what to do ?

What if you are not able to select the specialization after getting a degree?

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.

After engineering, taking option of MBA is quite senseless as you are not utilizing what you earned in your 4 years engineering. You are entering to totally different stream. You Should prefer a option which give you a better option to utilize what you learned.
