MBA and M.Tech are courses that have gained a lot of importance within the past few years. These courses provide interested students with good career opportunities in addition to a good environment to focus on their career. But one thing every student will be in doubt will be to whether pursue MBA or M.Tech. As both these course hold equal importance in today’s society, this is indeed a question to be pondered on.

In fact, this is one question that is always there in the minds of final year students of

Engineering. There is no simple answer for this question. One can say this with alacrity because there is simply no point in comparing MBA and M.Tech. Both these courses have their own differences and even their job scopes are dissimilar.

Which is most preferred?

To answer this query diplomatically, both the courses have their own vital roles in their own respective fields. In some places, MBA will be preferred, but this won’t be the case in other places. People might prefer M.Tech against MBA. The selection of either of these two courses is depended solely on the preferences as well as personal strengths of the student. If the case is that the students are from a science background and wish to continue their advanced education in the line of research or teaching, then M.Tech is the field for them. But if somebody wants to work with the management aspects then MBA is ideal for them.

The main question that will appear in everyone’s minds is, if both these courses have their equal importance in their respective fields, then why is the conflict on the superiority. The answer is that MBA has reached a zenith of popularity and subsequent to the introduction of MNC’s, lots of career opportunities have opened for students of MBA.  Meanwhile, people still assume that M.Tech is a conventional course and propagate this idea without knowing the fact that both are equally significant in their own fields.

Key factors

Selection of the M.Tech or MBA course depends on a few factors such as where the students have done their studies, what all they know about the course they have opted for, what they wish to do long term. And of course, last but not the least is the question on how either of these degrees will help them in their future plans.

One must understand that, it is the status of the job they choose that holds a higher position than the monetary benefits. The best example for this is that of a teacher. There are times when he might not get such a good income, but the positions he holds in the society is always a step higher when compare to other jobs. To summarize what we are talking about, one ought to feel confident about the future as well as the course one is opting. By becoming assured about your decision, one will become happy and will work hard for it without a second thought.
