After graduating from an engineering program, many engineers pursue an MBA to accelerate their career growth and to benefit from several other career factors. MBA students gain skills such as leadership capabilities, decision-making abilities, and soft skills by gaining an MBA degree after their B. Tech. When recruiting MBA graduates, companies prefer B.Tech graduates with a postgraduate degree as opposed to MBA graduates with just a master's degree.

  1. In terms of hiring MBA professionals, B.Tech graduates with MBA are well known as the most sought after combination in the industry since they can handle both technical and managerial aspects of the job.

  2. The combination of receiving both a B.Tech and a MBA gives graduates a competitive advantage when applying for jobs.

Why Pursue MBA after Engineering?

  • Most premier MBA institutions in India prefer graduates with some B.Tech engineering experience and lateral entry. This could also be due to their preference for engineers with 1-2 years experience when they recruit them during the admissions process. B.Tech graduates possess analytical and applied skills developed over the course of a professional degree. 

  • In India, the B.Tech program is a rigorous graduate degree program of four years that focuses on the development of practical skills through laboratory and internship training, as well as inter-disciplinary knowledge of science, technology and humanities. Business management courses provide B.Tech graduates with a platform to enrich their knowledge and skills of finance, operations, marketing, human resources, and entrepreneurial skills. The combination of technical skills and managerial abilities of a B.Tech graduate with an MBA gives them an edge over a graduate without a B.Tech.

  • When recruiting MBAs, companies with a technology or operations focus, financial engineering, or innovation, prefer B.Tech students with MBAs.

It is in the interest of the companies Satyam and Infosys to rehire MBAs with IT backgrounds who worked for their companies before joining their MBA programs.
