MBA or M.Tech – Which way to go after B.Tech?


Deciding whether one has to go for MBA or M.TECH after 4 years of B.Tech is quite perplexing. Students may have dilemmas regarding the course they wish to pursue for higher education since both the courses offer good placements and stable career.

Hence, drawing a parallel between Master of Business Administration and Master in technology is important.

MBA –Master of Business Administration is a field which offers students job in non technical industries. MBA polishes student’s management skills and provides job opportunities in finance, consultancy, banking and similar fields.

However, M.TECH– Master in Technology provides students with technical qualification. Students pursuing M.Tech can get jobs in technical industries. M.TECH also leads students in academic and, research and development areas.

MONEY is another factor which intrigues students to opt for MBA over M.TECH.

Many students live in a fallacy by believing that government jobs for M.TECH graduates do not pay well. Government organizations require employees with technical knowledge, therefore many M.TECH students get recruited with a fine package.



Students have the choice to either work in already established businesses and corporations or they can start their own by using their management skills. Also, they can work on banking and financial fronts.


An M.TECH student can go for higher studies and do P.HD or can even go for teaching. One can also get into Public and Private sector services.

A conclusion was drawn after comparing the two fields. Both the fields are entirely different, it entirely depends upon the student’s interest and motive that he chooses MBA or M.TECH. Both these fields are equally important and require focus and commitment. The only difficulty a student may witness is to choose the best available option.
