Hi There,

Very interesting question.

Now a days MBA being a trend, students blindly follow or pursue the said course.

But as you have rightly mentioned, relevancy is important.
Without knowing the relevancy of a course, or rather a direct relation to the job profile, pursuing an MBA is a waste of time and energy and money.

A brief description of your work and its progress over the years.
Marine Engineers are responsible for the design and construction of seagoing vessels and structures, focusing primarily on their internal systems. Simply put, they design the onboard electrical, environmental and propulsion systems aboard everything from oil platforms to cruise ships.

As per the job requirement, most of the time they are required to be on land in their warehouses, but since it is a job, whereby the vessel would sail on water, they would have to be onboard most of the time also.

Now the above job role fits a supervisory role. Most engineers would prefer only doing the basic work of designing the vessel, but actual testing is left to the supervisor and they too are a Marine engineering qualified.

Now, MBA is not just management but the core work involves strategising and troubleshooting.
The person at the top, is the one who would have to be already for unforeseen circumstances and is also expected to resolve it.

Here steps in my question to you,
Would you like to be a techie person or would you also like to work onboard as a supervisor and at the same time be able to manage a team.

Though at the end with experiences, people do move to the managerial role, but few engineers directly aim for such roles.

Here is where the MBA course fits in.

Though as a Counselor, I can never find the relevancy of an engineer pursuing a managerial course, because as such you engineers not only design, but also undertake the quality control of the product whether in-house or aboard.
This requires managerial skills.

But as companies demand MBA to lead such positions, if that is your ultimate aim, please do go ahead and pursue an MBA.

Hope I have been able to answer your question

Wish you good luck..........

Dear Aspirant,

Please remove MBA from your mind, if you are intending to have Marine Engineering as your career.

My straight answer: NO relevancy and scope of MBA for a Marine Engineer.

A simple one year general management course will be fine after you gain work experience of at least 5 years. This can be a distance learning too.

Best wishes
