    Yes ,offcourse you can pursue IAS after pursuing MBA. IAS can be done after your graduation from any stream or after pursuing any other degree such as MBA, CA,B.tech, etc.
    whether to choose IAS or CA .it depends on your personal interests. you should go for CA, if you are really interested in finance, accounting,taxation , audit, cost management, corporate laws and other legal matters. and you should go for IAS , if you are really interested in topics like general awareness , mathematics ,history, sociology and other aspects related to society and your local surroundings.

    IAS is more difficult than CA.

    But you said that you are interested then you should prepare for IAS exam at least for one time.

    Eligiblity criteria for this exam is graduation with a recognised university and age should be between 21 to 30.

    It conducts in 3 stages-prelim,main and interview.

    when will you qualify all of three then you will be selected on the basis of their performance.

    I am attaching the ias prelim. syllabus and sample paper,You can see it by simple downloading.

    The area where you would like to pursue your career must be decided beforehand. Civil Service Examination is conducted for recruiting officers in Indian Administrative Service. This is really a renowned profession. Because of this reason, only potential candidates can enter in this sector. The recruitment is done by UPSC. As a competitive examination, thorough preparation is needed for this. A graduation is required for appearing in the IAS exam. If you are good in numerical, Chartered Accountancy is a good option. Opportunities are available in India and in foreign countries. Find your own interested area and try to excel in that area.

    IAS and CA both are different fields without no inter relation. If you are interested in commerce & accounts , then you should go for CA.
    Otherwise Civil service is for the one who has an aptitude for social service, just dont go after money & power.

    IAS EXAM:

    >>YOU MUST APPLY FOR THE AIS EXAM ONLY ON THE FINAL YEAR STUDIES OF YOUR MBA COURSE.

    >>THE BEST OPINION IS YOU CAN DO YOUR IAS AFTER COMPLETING YOUR MBA STUDIES.

    >>IAS STANDS FOR INDIAN ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES.

    >>THE SYLLABUS FOR IAS EXAM IS GENERAL STUDIES AND THE BBA COURSE SUBJECTS.

    >>SO IF YOU KNOW THESE SUBJECTS YOU CAN SURELY BECOME AN IAS OFFICER.

    Hi,
    IAS is best exam for entry into civil service
    IAS is one of the toughest exam in india
    so my suggetion is that if you want to prepare for IAS then concentrate only on IAS exam.
    You can choose either IAS or MBA
    or first you can complete you MBA and after that you may prepare for IAS
    Don't spread you mind and don't be confuse about the course
    choose the course according to your interest
    i wish for you best future....

    Re: Is it possible to do IAS after or while pursuing MBA? Which to choose among IAS and CA?

    Hi,
    You can for sure prepare for IAS after MBA.
    IRRESPECTIVE of no of degrees you have...
    If you have completed your graduation,you are eligible for IAS.

    ELIGIBILITY:
    FOR GENERAL CANDIDATES
    You must be graduate.
    Age between 21-30 yrs.
    Only 4 attempts are allowed.

    FOR OBC CANDIDATES:

    You must be graduate.
    Age between 21-33 yrs.
    Only 7 attempts are allowed.

    FOR SC/ST CANDIDATES
    :
    You must be graduate.
    Age between 21-35 yrs.
    No restriction on attempts.


    IAS AND CA


    Both IAS and CA are very competitive and require lot of studies.
    But preparation for IAS requires a lot of knowledge ,preparation and dedication.

    So prepare for IAS only if you are truly determined to join CIVIL SERVICES.

    Best of Luck..
