A job aspirant from Hyderabad asked ‘I have done Masters in Biotechnology. My friends are asking me to go for MBA, so I want to know how MBA will help me in my career? What will be my job prospects?’ Answer to this question is: This Support of your friend’s suggestion shows you that they are not aware of things in the real world.

I request you to give details as it is most important career step.’
