    Both MBA and CA will be useful to build up a promising career. MBA course will be much better as you have completed your B.E in Civil engineering. This helps you to gain administrative as well as managerial skills. Candidates with B.E/B.Tech + MBA degree are highly demanded in most of the industries. CA degree is all about accounting and finance. The stream is entirely different from the civil engineering. If you have the interest for the same you can apply for the same. The ICAI site has all the details on the course structure.

    Well you can do CA or MBA after completing B.E Civil

    CA (Chartered Account) is not a coarse it is only a exam.For writing this exam your bachelor degree is enough.

    MBA (Master of Business Administration) is a wanted coarse all over the world.For doing this coarse you have to write entrance exam.There are various entrance exam for MBA conducted by different Institutions.

    CAT (Common Admission Test ) is the well known entrance exam conducted by IIM (Indian Institute of Management).

    If you see you have studied B.E Civil four years but Civil ,CA,MBA are totally different areas.What i say is do coarses related to civil try to get job in companies related to civil otherwise what you have studied have no value,so try to understand my kind advice.

    ......All the best......
