12Sep,2018
By Admin

Every year, the number of engineers willing to take management courses are growing.  Either they show interest for MBA courses by analysing the current market demand or they come for it only by following their seniors blindly.  This is because the Masters in Business Administration degree increases the job prospects of students and also keeps them one step ahead. This helps them unleash both their technical as well as management skills in the organisation. The intensely-competitive Indian market is flooded with thousands of startups which require skilled professionals who are versatile and good at multi-tasking. The lucrative salary packages and high profile job roles are the main reasons why engineers prefer doing MBA after attaining technical knowledge in their engineering years. Then is salary is the only factor for which a student would like to contribute 2 valuable years of his life? Because salary can be increased with work experience too.  So before choosing MBA after engineering one should know the benefits of the course for him/her.

What is MBA?

Master of Business Administration, is a highly valued degree designed to develop the skills required for careers in business and management. Attaining an MBA allows you to learn how to successfully manage, lead, organise and adapt in a variety of business environments. The skills learned through an MBA program prepares you with practical skills as well as theoretical knowledge that one can further one’s business aspirations with. An MBA can translate one’s raw potential into great opportunities. Most MBA programs include a core curriculum of subjects, such as accounting, economics, marketing, and operations, as well as elective courses that allow participants to follow their own personal or professional interests.  Some of the major subjects of MBA are finance, human resource management, accounting, international business, marketing etc. 

Even though business administration and engineering are almost like the two different poles of a magnet still they are somehow needed together to survive in competition. Business administrator manages and controls the business while the engineer deals with the technical aspect s as per the requirement of the company. But if there will be no coordination among the employer and employee then how would the organisation progress and succeed?? So if an engineer have additional MBA qualification then it would be easier for him to understand the nature and style of doing business of his company. Similarly a business administrator having MBA qualification makes more favourable decisions regarding the welfare and development for a software company than an ordinary MBA. So in this way engineering and MBA has interdependence to run a successful software company.
