After pursuing a B.Tech degree, a candidate, still lacks the business management skills that are intrinsic to managerial and other high-level roles in an organization. This is where an MBA degree is of utmost benefit. A B.Tech – MBA combination is one of the most sought after combination in the industry. B.Tech graduates who possess an MBA degree have the requisite skills and knowledge to handle both the technical and managerial side of the business, which makes them an invaluable asset for a company.
The variety of subjects taught and introduced in an undergraduate course is quite narrow when compared to an MBA degree. Degrees obtained from most MBA colleges in India cover many core spectrums such as statistics, economics, HR, finance, IT, business, etc. Therefore it leads to candidates having a wider playing field and an expansion in horizons in either one of these. With the right exposure, one can expect excellent jobs in multiple sectors of businesses. From IT/ITES and BFSI to e-commerce and healthcare, professionals who have dual degrees (with one of them being an MBA degree), are readily hired by companies and organizations. This is why if you have a B.Tech degree and an MBA degree, your prospects of employment increase manifold. The best part – you can find job opportunities not only with the top national brands but also with some of the best and well-established international companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, eBay, Airbnb, TCS, Cognizant, Accenture, Deloitte, and Oracle, to name a few.
Since an MBA program focuses mainly on the managerial aspects of business, during the course, students develop a host of soft skills, including team spirit, leadership skills, communication skills, presentation skills, organizational skills, and so much more. This contributes to the all-round development of the learners. As a result, there’s a noticeable change in their personalities as well. An MBA program helps students improve their confidence levels, thereby making them ready for the real-world. Development of soft skills to such a large extent does not occur in B.Tech.
The MBA experience altogether helps students to emerge from their comfort zones and get in touch with new experiences.
The bottom line is – whether you choose to pursue an MBA degree right after completing B.Tech or gain a few years of working experience before enrolling in an MBA program, you will reap immense benefits both ways. Because of this, the demand for MBA after B.Tech is continuously increasing.
