hello monomita
Technically/Interestingly you should go for MCA
Intelligently you go for MBA

you have interest in programming but for future you should have good command in programming.
C & C++ are the basic languages further you have to go for JAVA ,.NET
If you can cover then go for MCA.

If you should not then go for MBA. MBA is also a tuff job
you must do your master degree from best institute.

their is another option i.e Msc. (IT) from IIT
If interested then reply me I will give you full detail.

i think you should opt for master of business administration,
because there is no other option option left for you,
because for mca you need to be really good in programming so forget everything and go for mba
all the best

hello monomita
you should go for MCA

The masterís degree in Management after the Bachelor program in Computer Application can be a difficult decision to make.
However, according to the changing trend of the IT market, it is highly advisable for any passed out candidate of BCA to pursue the masterís degree of the same course.

Even though the course is of three years as compared to only two years for the MBA course, it should be pursued.

BUT DON'T WORRY GIVE YOUR 100% AND GO FOR IT.
BEST OF LUCK

As there are large number of business schools so you should be very careful for during choosing your college.
There are a large no. of MBA entrance examination for admission to various institutes.
eg CAT, XAT, MAT, SNAP,GMAT etc etc....

dear friend

if you are do mca, then its true you become a good programmer after completing
this course. and if you are to be a good programmer, then you can do these courses
also like- C++ programming, java programming.

or if you are not interested in mca or in programming, then its better for you, to do mba.
now a days mba is great demand in india as well as in foreign. so, there is no problem
if you can do mba after bca.

ok
all the best

Yeah you have to be good in programming but don't worry if your not good in it, you can surely learn during your learning process.

So answer MCA entrance test and try to clear it and then you can join some course to strengthen your programming skills

Cheers

If you have taken MCA Commerce then you must be good in Mathematics as it needs acconting in data spreadsheet. But if you have taken MCA science you must be a good programmer as it is related to computer.

hello dear


look,after doing MCA you have to work in software industry.

so you have learn programming language within your MCA.

as you are currently doing BCA, so you have to take little bit idea about programming language.

otherwise you will lots of problems during your MCA course.

all the best.........

FrIeNdS there is nothing confusion in this, just get a decision from your parent and seniors. You just think alone which one will be better for your future and pursue for it. Our duty is to study whatever it may be mba or mca, put your full effort. My choice is MCA Because my UG is B.sc Computer Science, i dont know any programming but in the period of three years we can learn it. God is their for us and sure we will have the bright future...!

I think go for MBA,if you have not interest in programming because if you do MCA their is a lot of programming in the course and you need to go on JAVA,SQL languages. so if you not good in programming then go for MBA.

Hi,
Its entirely your decision to make. As you are week in programming languages and you want to go for the MCA then definitely it will become tough for you. In that case it is better for you to choose the MBA course.

Best wishes...

Yes,If you choose MCA for your higher studies than its essential to have knowledge about programming language.You can faced several languages in bca.So its good for you to have good knowledge about programming languages.Mca is a computer related field and have so much scope.If you dont have knowledge about programming language than its not a big problem.You can do a course from an institute.It willl give you confidence.So do work hard and do regular practice with programming.

All the best

Yes you are right that MCA is full of the programming language.

so you should be prepared for it.

some languages like c, c++, you can read.

these will be base of the course that you will face in the master degree.

MCA is a master degree in which you will be master in your field.

java is a global language in which you can make your future. i will give you suggestion for java.

best of luck.

You have the following options (There may be more available than this list)

1. Database Administration.

2. Network Administration.

3. Testing (Not preferred if you are not good in coding, still can try)

4. Govt Services / Bank.. etc

5. Teaching (Would be much better if you do a M.Phil and PhD after MCA).
