    I am a B.tech in Electrical Engineering passed out in 2011.I worked for a reputed company in the State electricity board projects(RAPDRP) for five months but I had to leave the job recently for some family problems.In the meantime I have appeared for CAT2011 and I am keenly interested to pursue MBA before entering into the job life again.
    I want to know how far will this decision benefit me and what are the MBA specialisations that will suit me?

    For MBA :


    You need to have a bachelor's degree (3-year course) or equivalent in any discipline recognised by any Indian University / AICTE as eligible for post-graduate studies.

    You can apply while you are in your final year of graduation. If you do get through the admission test, you will be given provisional admission on the condition that you provide your mark sheet and a certificate of passing by a certain date.
