    If anyone has any knowledge of all these fields then will it be tough for me to do my MBA. btw I've completed a bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering and that wasn't tough for me because u dont need to remember anything in programming and the math related subjects and it's fun, but i have no clue about an MBA and i would like to get a job in management so i was wondering before pursuing if it would be detrimental for me.

    You can pursue Master's in Business Administration (MBA) or Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM), if you are interested in management. MBA degree will help you in changing your job stream drastically. You will have an opportunity to work with a managerial firm. Since you have lost your interest in the software firm, then you should not pursue it further. Management field is pretty much interesting and it will give you tremendous opportunities in almost all firms. You will have to appear for exams like CAT, XAT, MAT, SNAP, FMS, etc to get into good colleges like IIMs, XLRI, Symbiosis, etc. If you want to join a good foreign University like Stanford, Harvard business school, then you will have to score really good in GMAT and IELTS/TOEFL. World's best business schools like MIT, Stanford, harvard, Yale University, London school of economics, etc are located at US and UK. In India, if you pursue MBA in Information Systems (IS), Information Technology (IT) or Technical management, then you again will have an opportunity to enter software firms but at a managerial position. It will be advantageous for you since you are already working at a software firm and you have experience in this sector. Since you are pass out of B.E. in EC engg., you can also pursue M.Tech degree course by appearing for GATE exam. By GATE and M.Tech, you can enter core electrical companies too. You have wide variety of options available at this point of time. Choose wisely.
    all the best!!

    MBA is an excellent choice as a Post graduate degree. There is no harm in doing an MBA after B.E. You will get excellent placement in lot of good companies in India as well as abroad. The only criterion which you must keep in mind is to get your MBA from a reputed institution. In India lot of colleges and autonomous institutions offer MBA. But these MBA do not have value in the job sector. You need to prepare for CAT, MAT or XAT entrance exams. This will help you to enter into top B-schools in the country. If you manage to get in to any of the top institutions then it is more than enough for a lucrative career. As far as doing an MBA abroad is concerned, you will have to do it in good universities also which is comparatively very expensive for Indian students.

    Since you are not interested in software field it is best not to pursue a career in the same. Its been only two years since you are not in field of E.C.E but that does not mean that you would have forgotten everything. Its just a matter of refreshing memory. Also MBA is a good decision. During the first year you will need to study the basics of all the streams in MBA. So you will be able to judge which is the best stream for you. Sure going abroad is a good option. But you need to decide where you would like to go and how to manage the finances. In India you should try to go for the best institutes like IIM's, XLRI etc. If you plan to go abroad you need to appear for GMAT and TOEFL/IELTS. In India you have options to appear for entrance exams like CAT, MAT, XAT etc.

    Should an engineer do MBA if he's not interested in Software Industry jobs? Which streams, colleges and universities are most appropriate?

    Hi,
    I have done by B.E(E.C.E). Currently I am working in a leading software firm. But I am not interested in the software industry and I would like to change industry. Please guide me whether doing an MBA would serve the purpose. Actually I feel I have lost touch with my electronics as it is more than 2 years since I changed my industry. So I guess it would be better for me to go for an MBA. Please guide which branch in MBA I can choose. Also let me know is it worth to do an MBA outside India. If so which country and which University?
