Thanks for writing to Careerguide.com!!
According to your question, definitely you can persue MBA but firstly I would like to know what has been your formal education so far. What are the services you are providing. What has made you to persue MBA? What specialization are you interested in? What is your aptitude in? There are many such questions ahead of this. I would suggest you to take Aptitude Test from Career guide if you feel you are not able to decide. Also, there are many options apart from MBA if you are interested in self employed work. So do write us back on what has been your educational background, your aptitude and what services are you currently providing through self employment. After we have these information, we can take ahead this conversation in more fruitful way. It will automatically answer your question about pursuing MBA or some other courses.

Firstly, I would like to say that your formal education and your current professional experience are very different from each other! To top it you are interested in another completely different arena which is IT Sector! So I would firstly like to know whether you are planning to formally set up a small firm which outsources IT services? If yes then Management course is of importance to you. If you are not planning this then I would insist on knowing whether IT is the area you feel more confident and sure about then you must take up some course related to IT. But I feel you must take Ideal Career Test from Careerguide.com as it'll help you to know and understand what is the ideal Career choice based on your aptitude and personality traits along with interest area. It'll bring lot of clarity.
Pls write us back for any further questions!Thanks & Regards,
I agree with what the above counselor has mentioned.
Your Graduation and your work do not go hand in hand.So my question to you here is Which field are you looking out for an MBA in???
Another point here is, if you freelanicng, then you can enroll for a fulltime MBA program. But best is first decide you wish to do an MBA in which subject. Moreover, is it MBA or certifications you wish to pursue further.
Discuss with your co colleagues and be aware of the changes happening and what the market demands and pursue that course. Making a sensible choice of study will help you strengthen your future prospects
Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck..
