  • The flexibility in choosing jobs and career paths As MBA covers a huge area, and the courses include a wide variety of subjects, the students gain different skills, which become useful in a variety of career choices. For example, if one is not happy with the position they occupy at their company, they can set up their own business or look for other positions in other companies.
  • High demand for B.Tech graduates with an MBA degree Technology is evolving every day, thus increasing the need for professionals who can tackle it best. Well, what can be more professional than somebody with expertise in two fields, and who can manage both the tech or machinery and the organization that deals with it.
