Hello Pooja,

A very apt question asked. These days courses have become a rat race.

Students not knowing their potentials and most importantly not knowing what they wish to focus or what they want out of their career make a choice blindly.

 Thus you will notice, many MBA graduates are still at a junior level and few are working in positions or roles they do not fit into at all.

Thus answer to your query, as to scope and success of a management course would completely depend on your abilities, aptitude, potentials and most importantly knowing what you wish to do in future.

Also Management is a trait which follows experience. But we see a lot of freshers who jump into a management course, not knowing anything about the functioning of the industry. I suggest, pursue a management course only after few years of work experience, as one would know the true meaning of management and would be able to utilise the learnt management principles.

Wish you good luck.....
