Hello, I am Anurag. I completed my B.Tech from IIT Kanpur and got jo
Dear Anurag, let me tell you that the dilemma you are facing is very natural and very common. So firstly do not feel that this is a very unique career problem. I am very happy and you should feel proud that you managed to complete your BTech degree from a premier engineering institute that is IIT Kanpur. Not everybody gets a chance to be in IITs. Therefore as suggested by Expert Anuj and Ajit, I would also recommend you to go for the job you have secured and do not worry about MBA for 3 years. Being an IIT graduate itself is a good thing and I definitely feel that you should make use of this job opportunity that has come in your way and make the most out of it. Also I would like you to understand that it is not mandatory to be an MBA to become a Manager in future, ofcourse an MBA definitely gives you an edge and a better understanding of the business and strategies, etc. Please understand that you should not worry about doing an MBA at this point of time since you already have a job in hand. Many people today are not able to get jobs even though they may be highly qualified. Therefore I would like to see you concentrate and focus on your job and learning there which will actually help you grow in terms of salary, job profile and status. In future if you feel that an MBA is necessary, then the work experience of atleast 3 years stands a very good status while applying to MBA. Also please note that if you do not an MBA related to your field that is manufacturing or operations, then it may happen that pursuing an MBA Finance or HR or Marketing will get into a very different industry domain where seldom your IIT engineering knowledge will be useful. Therefore while choosing the specialisation, I would recommend you to choose either Operations or Systems. After a solid IIT engineering degree doing finance or marketing and doing a table chair job of accounting, finance or raoming around in the market for marketing of services or product does not make sense. After gaining an experience of 3 years atleast, you can also think of doing MBA on part time basis, if you do not wish to do it full time, since doing full time will amount to leaving your job. There are many good institutes in India which offer part time MBA. Best Luck
