Dear Mohammed Asif Khan,


MBA vs IAS what to choose It all depends on what you love to do in your life. Indian Administrative Service(IAS) is a reputed and respected career option as the IAS officers are the one who steers the administrative mechanism. If you want to be agent of some real change happening in society, you can go for IAS. But remember that the path to IAS is not that simple. Services like IAS, IPS and IFS can't be opted only if you get very high rank(within top 100) in Civil Services Examination. 



On the other hand, MBA opens you into a corporate world where you can earn money, an envious life style and all.. In fact you can try Civil Services Examinations after completing MBA and doing some real professional work. All the best for your future young man.

MBA vs IAS both are different from each other as one talks about how to run a business and another one to run legislature, MBA vs IAS , MBA is a degree , IAS is a position of officer in civil service but both have demand in their particular field  because MBA is top notch degree and IAS is most respectable and highest job

Dear Aspirant,

MBA vs IAS Now that you are a graduate, choosing and telling you which is better in IAS and MBA is not possible for the simple reason that in a way you are asking me is apple good or orange good. The answer to this is both are good, however it depends on what is the current need and future requirement behind eating those fruits.

MBA is 1% of IAS studies and therefore, you should not compare between them at all.


Whether going for government services through IAS is your dream or passion needs to be looked at by yourself. If you are passionate, determined, then you should definitely go ahead and start preparing for IAS exam and try to crack it fully in two years. These two years should be full of studies, determination, practice, coaching, self-confidence, hope, patience, and perseverance. If you have all these aspects in you, then IAS is made for you.

IAs is about government services and MBA is about private industry services. Both services are different than each other in all aspects.

I would suggest that to remove the confusion and before choosing one of them just by luck or chances, take the Ideal Career Test from This psychometric report will exactly indicate which one of those are best suitable to you based on your aptitude, innate abilities, interests, passion, etc.

I hope i got your query solved about mba vs ias

Best wishes

Hello Asif.. IAS and MBA are very different for a career. Because, if you are spending your time for MBA, you will be surely getting a degree after 2 years. But IAS is not like that. It may give you good result for your 1 year hard work or it may not give you result even after years long hard work. So if you really want to secure a good career, it will be better to join for MBA and to prepare for IAS with that. It will help you to have a degree in one hand and to get more near to your ambition

. Some of the institutes like Lovely Professional University, Delhi university, JMI etc are offering good MBA courses as well as coaching for Civil Service exam. SO       you can choose such institutes to get a secured future and career.
