No. This is not considered good normally.You are doubted for your purpose of doing things. You should better go for higher education, proving your worth through competitive exams like GRE or GMAT, or GATE for Indian colleges.The plan to study further from a reputed institute is good but the same degree again is preferred only if you want to do it in another trade, like an MA twice in English and Economics etc. A four year course twice is never recommended except for Ph. D.Wish you good luck.
