Should an engineer do MBA if he's not interested in Software Industry jobs? Which streams, colleges and universities to prefer?


Hi. I have done by B.E(E.C.E) . Currently I am working in a leading software firm. But I am not interested in the software industry and I would like to change industry. Please guide me whether doing an MBA would serve the purpose. Actually i feel I have lost touch with my electronics as it is more than 2 years i changed my industry. So I guess it would be better for me to go for an MBA. Please guide which branch in MBA I can choose. Also let me know is it worth to do an MBA outside India. If so which country and which University?

Thanks

see since you are telling you feel going away from your field of interest that is electronics and want to do MBA it is good you can do mba in telecom management and various other technical branch but

more technical side of electronics is M.TECH..if you think you are more

Hi,

You can go ahead with MBA if you are not satisfied with your technical work in the software industry.
You don't have the option of MTech as yoor link with your stream has broken.
You can choose among finance or Marketing in MBA.
You can prepare for CAT and GMAT for getting admissions to the best institutes.

Thumbs up Re: Should an engineer do MBA if he's not interested in Software Industry jobs? Which streams, colleges and universities to prefer?

this is a very good choice on your part. If you are no longer interested in software company then MBA can do good.it has streams like IB,IT,finance,human resource and marketing. choose according to your interest like if you have good communication skills then go for marketing or human resource stream. for the universities in India IIMs are the best. they take entrance through cat exam .Other universities are FMS-DU,XLRI,symbiosis,amity are the best. for foreign universities you have to give gmat.
some foreign universities are Harvard Business School, U.S.A., Columbia Business School, U.S.A., Insead, France / Singapore, Stanford University GSB, U.S.A, IE Business School, Spain, Ceibs, China, MIT: Sloan, U.S.A., New York University: Stern, U.S.A, NUS singapore

Hello,

It is not necessary to do MBA because you want to change the industry ot you are out of touch from ECE etc. The most important criteria is your passion. Are you passionate about innovation and technical work in Electronics and telecom?
What you learned in BE was theory and getting out of that theory does not matter as the ground work that you do in electronics or any industry is vastly different than what you read in engineering books. This is obviously because of the gap between industry and the universities.
If you are passionate about doing technical innovations, you can do another short course in telecom billing or simillar areas and get into industry as a technical expert.
If you are not interested in management, even after doing MBA, you will not be satisfied in the management ladder which involves purely non technical work and talking at 40000 feet level etc.
All the Best!!
