There is a huge scope of doing an MBA after becoming a mechanical engineer but it also depends on your interest and the kind of roles that you are looking to play. Please consider the following points before you decide your MBA:


1. If you are working as a mechanical engineer and have gained at least 2-3 years of work experience and you think you are ready to manage other people and take a step in the leadership team then this is the right time for you to get an MBA degree.

2. If you are interested in business and management, then MBA can be a good option for you. In this case even if you do not have enough work experience you can still go for the degree as it will give you a platform to learn new things and explore the business world where you will be learning so many variety of things.

3. If you are working as a mechanical engineer and looking to grow your professional knowledge both management and technical expertise, and also to grow your professional network, MBA offers you a nice platform to do that.

4. If you are looking to diversify your skill set as a mechanical engineer and you think that MBA can be the right value addition for you, then you should not hesitate to go for this role and start learning the things that matter to you. It will be a nice place to learn the things that you won't be able to learn at your work place. The kind of diversity that you get in a business school is rare phenomenon and this is what adds most to your learning.

5. If you are working as a mechanical engineer or a fresh mechanical engineering graduate but are not keen to work in this field, and instead in a typical corporate set up in the field of management, then MBA is the right career option for you. However you can explore other career options as well before directly jumping in to MBA.

Dear Aspirant,

MBA for an Engineer, whether good? is the maximum times asked question these days.

I would like to say that if you wish to remain in the engineering technical field, then MBA is not useful. If you wish to go into management cadre, then MBA is useful.

However the sad part is, the industry employs MBAs and then their graduation does not remain relevant. Therefore you have decide whether to go for an MBA just for the sake of it or no.

For an Engineer, an MBA degree helps only when he has gained atleast five years of experience in engineering field. There are 90% cases where Engineers who have done MBA are hired for a non-engineering role and work in finance, hr or marketing. These fields have no relevance with engineering knowledge.

Best wishes
