Thank you for choosing Mera career guide and writing to us. I see you are willing to club MBA and interior designing career together. First of all, I would like to clarify that MBA and interior designing are completely two different fields involving different skills. Interior designing requires a person with designing and technical skills and an MBA requires management skills. There are people who study MBA, after studying interior designing but there is truly no point! This take actually fluctuates people's skills and experiences. However if you want to change your career and try something into management, an MBA at this point is considerable. But if you prefer sticking to interior designing and still want to pursue an MBA, may be you are attracted to the word MBA?

Lots of students prefer doing an MBA only because everybody around them has so much hype for this degree. Very few students who aspire careers in management actually consider MBA degrees. I personally advice you to double check yourself on these terms,
1. What are your career aspirations? Do you want to stick with interior designing?
2. Or do you want to switch careers into another field and prefer an MBA in that point?

If you hear your heart saying yes for interior designing, I would advice you to not pursue an MBA. If you don't want to stick to interior designing, I recommend you to study an MBA. It also requires careful evaluation of what elective subjects you are going to study in your MBA. Considering your interior designing background, you may be certainly not suited to MBA Accounts or Finance. However you could consider doing an MBA in HR, Marketing, Communications or even an MBA in Entrepreneurship. If at all, there is little desire or love hanging on interior designing, you can consider doing an MBA in Interior design management or MBA in Architecture and design management. These are the two MBA courses available in India but I am afraid if MBA Architecture and design management will suit your background. Probably you could consider doing MBA Interior design management?

Please remember doing an MBA out of interest is no harm but if you have interest for interior designing, an MBA is not all required. In my opinion, you may waste two years of time and money that an MBA may incur on you. Also, studying an MBA in design management will give you some managerial level jobs and certainly not technical level jobs. With an interior designing degree, you can see yourself as the Chief designer for a hotel after five or seven years but with an MBA, you could only be a Manager or Senior Manager, managing staffs. This is the real picture and please ask yourself what you really like. You will be set free then.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to write to me if you have further inquiries. All the best.
