Dear aspirant

Economists
Thank you for approaching counsellors at CareerGuide.com. You have clearly stated that you have plans in studying further and not interested in work. As you have planned to study and are confused between MBA and MA applied economics, i shall give you some light on the two and say what is suitable for you.

To straight away say, you can study MA applied economics rather tahn doing an MBA because of just one reason, you are lacking work experience and an MBA would not suit you in this aspect. Therefore i advice you to take up MA applied economics. An MA Applied Economics or MA Economics will be more suitable to you. Studying an MA will give you in depth knowledge rather doing an MBA because MBA is a pure management degree and studying thsi MBA will completely divert you from Economics. Ask your self if you want a management degree or an economics degree. And one more thing, India has no degree like MBA in Economics but there are very few universities offering MBA Business economics. This degree is again a mixture of business and economics and the syllabus will be concentrated only on how economics contributes and facilitates running a business. For example, you cannot study about how economics will help in trade partnerships both in export or import or how economics plays within health care. But if you choose MA economics or applied economics you can learn how economics plays within ecah sector or industry.

So finally an MBA Business economics will give you knowledge only on economics in business functions. But if you study MA Economics you will get knowledge about economics functions in various sectors. As you are completing your bachelors and then proceeding to your Masters, I advice you to to consider studying MA Economics/ Applied economics itself rather than doing an MBA. Some of the colleges in India that offer MA Economics/ Applied economics are
  1. Jawaharlal Nehru University Delhi
  2. Madras school of economics Chennai Tamilnadu
  3. Jamila Millia Islamia university New Delhi
  4. St Josephs college Bangalore
  5. Christ university Bangalore
  6. Madras christian college Chennai Tamilnadu
  7. Punjabi university Patiala
  8. Jain University Bangalore
  9. osmania university Andhra Pradesh
  10. University of Hyderabad
  11. University of Mumbai
  12. University of Delhi Shri Ram college
  13. University of Kolkatta
  14. Kalyani university Kolkatta
  15. Maharishi Dayanand University
