Hello Dear Aspirant,

Welcome to Career

Thanks for visiting us and writing us your career query.

Its an interesting question that you have got on the Career's panel. Its good to hear that you have been thinking to go for your further education even after completing your engineering. Learning is the life long process and one should not stop learning .

Many of the students nowadays of pursuing an MBA after engineering because they think that they after pursuing MBA one gets a good job with handsome salary. My question to you is why you wish to go for an MBA after engineering? Engineering and MBA are completely different fiield. Engineering belongs to the Science field whereas MBA is a commerce stream.The person who wish to make their career in Management or want to work in the managerial position can go for MBA whereas if you wish to continue your career in the same field i.e engineering than i would suggest you to go for MTech /MS that will be very useful as compared to MBA. Give a though in which you wish to make your career whether in Engineering or MBA .

While i would also like to suggest you to go for the Psychometric Career Aptitude Assessment. These assessments will assess your interest,strengths,weakness,personality traits etc.with these report you will get an clear idea which career to select and a career counsellor will guide very well. You can take an assessment from Career and can connect to any of the counsellor expert from the panel or can connect to me and can chalk your career life.

I hope you find this information useful and helpful

Feel free to get in touch again for your further career query.

Wish you Good Luck

Thank You

Warm Regards,
Prathamesh Kapote

Dear Aspirant,

Similar questions have been answered by me and for you too my answer and advice would be the same. I agree with my co-counsellor Mr. Kapote here.

Once you are an engineer, I think you should first ascertain why you wish to diversify your career. Yes, doing an MBA after engineering will divert your career to non-engineering fields like finance, hr, marketing, international business, etc. If you choose an MBA Marketing, you will be selling something which would not at all be related to your engineering degree. That also means that your engineering years, money, efforts will go waste.

Your confusion can be removed by answering my question: Whether you are interested in technical field or you wish to leave engineering altogether? If your answer to my first part of question is yes, then MBA would NOT help you at all. If your answer to my second part of the question is yes, MBA will be good for you.

You will have to decide whether you would like to work in the technical field or not.

I would recommend you to undergo Ideal Career Test from which will help you clear the confusion over technical or management.

Best wishes
