A software Engineer from Pune did his graduation (B.Tech) in 2005 in Computer Science and Engineering from one of the JNTU affiliated colleges in Andhra Pradesh. Presently he is working as Software Engineer in Pune. He has around 5 years of experience in Software Development. Now he want to pursue MBA thinking that it will help his career growth. But he is in confusion over choosing a branch that suites him. Here is a brief response to this kind of situations.
This is the right time for him to undertake MBA studies. Management education background is important for getting into fast track growth in an organization. With 5 years experience in background, it would be good if he pursue MBA in Technology Management. Technology Management is an emerging vertical and opportunities are likely to increase in future. In fact IIT, Delhi offers this course on a part-time basis. Osmania University also offers MBA in Technology Management as a part-time program. BITS, Pilani offers a similar program viz., MBA in Engineering and Technology Management from its Dubai campus on a full time basis. International Institute of Information Technology, Pune offers a full time program in MBA Information Technology Management.
MBA Through Distance after B.Tech:
Management education is a key differentiator for technical graduates in their career progress. Only a professional qualification such as B.Tech. will not be enough for aspiring students to reach the zenith of their professional career. It is important to learn the management and business side of an enterprise. Hence your decision to do MBA is welcome. However, the quality of MBA programs offered in India in distance education is not rigorous enough for industry to value them. Further MBA is a professional qualification. There are certain skills which are required to be acquired during the MBA Program. It is suggested that you pursue a full time campus based two year MBA program of a recognized university from a good school.
