I am currently in my 2nd year and feeling really confused about my future. I have seen many seniors opting for MBA and MS. I have done research on the same but I am still not able to decide. The reason for my confusion is that I like doing technical stuff but not sure till when will this last. Also I posses good communication and managerial skills because of which many people ask me to go for MBA. Request you people to help me out on the same. This is really making me worried. 😐
Well there is nothing to be confused so early in you career Nidhi. Just hold on and be patient. Give it some more time, try to analyze your strengths and weaknesses. And anyways if by any chance you decide that you want to go for MBA, you would still need 3-5 years of experience for getting admissions in reputed MBA colleges. Till then you can work with your B.tech degree and figure out what you actually want to do. Hope this was helpful 😀

- Hey thanks for replying. I have heard that we can write the entrance exams for MBA and MS anytime and it stays valid for 5 years ? I am not sure when is the best time to write this exam and what all is tested in this, could you please guide me through this ?
- CAT results are valid for 1 yr, GMAT results are valid for 5yrs! thank you
Well I would say the same, give yourself some time. Don’t rush into a decision too fast just because your friends may be doing it or your parents are asking you to. I have seen many people who rush into such a decision and regret it later. It all comes up to what would you like to do for the rest of your life. Please give it a good thought and at the end I would say do what you would enjoy more.
Well the choice of MBA or MS is totally an individual choice. As said above, you still have enough time to figure it out Nidhi. But still I would ask you to go through this article as it would help you in making a wise decision :
I would suggest, you go for what your strengths prefer! 🙂
Good at your specialization? go for MS
Good at English and maths? go for MBA
I could help you with MBA preparation:
You should start as early as possible!!
The paper comprises of:
Logical Reasoning and DI
First of all take a mock to see where you stand. Now you know which areas you need to focus on!
for all the above, you can buy ARUN SHARMA books! they are the best and doing those can help you a lot in improving. The level-3 in those is the type of questions that come in cat.
solve those. AND, enroll yourself in some mock test series. AMCAT by TIME is the best but thougher that the actual CAT, Career Launcher test series is of same level as CAT.
I suggest you do both. AND you are ready to rock CAT paper!
Details for what to choose (MS or MBA) is given here:
Further its your wish to pursue the course. (my suggestion : CAT) 🙂
