Why MBA?

80 to 90 CAT Percentile

‘Why MBA?’ is the most pertinent question which comes in the mind of every CAT aspirant. This is, however, an ignored question in general as most students want to pursue an MBA as part of the rat race. Some want this degree to have better pay and job security and others as only an additional degree to add to their existing qualification and resume. However, just like we ponder and research properly before buying real estate, property or even electronic gadgets for that matter, when it comes to education and building a career, one must not slack and have clarity on whatever they are getting into, especially when it comes to a management degree and career.

What is an MBA?

Masters of Business Administration (MBA) is a Post-graduate programme which aims to provide a complete understanding of management in terms of conceptual, theoretical and practical training in various aspects of business like economics, operations marketing, basic accounting, corporate finance etc., regardless of the specialisation. However, if you are inclined towards pursuing a particular stream or specialisation like Human Resources, Finance, Sales and Marketing among others, you can always opt for a  specialized MBA in that specific facet.

Notably, most MBA programmes in India are accredited by AICTE or UGC, and many others come with prestigious international accreditations. For example, the prestigious IIM Calcutta’s programs are accredited by AACSB and AMBA, making it the only Indian B-school with both these global accreditations.

MBA programmes can be divided into two types, depending on the kind of degree and the duration required to complete it. One is the two-year Full-Time Program and One-Year Executive Program. The former is extremely common and highly sought after, and offers both a Diploma (PGDM) and a Masters degree (MBA) as well. Notably, MBA is offered by colleges that are affiliated to a university and PGDMs are provided by colleges not affiliated with any university. However, the said degrees don’t make a difference to recruiters as they go by the reputation of the college and the potential and aptitude of a student.

Notably, IIMs and XLRI are two of the most prestigious B-schools of India.

What does an MBA comprise of?

An MBA programme typically has 6 terms (also known as trimesters) of 3 months each. Both the years have 3 trimesters each. Also, a student is supposed to undertake a 2 month long summer internship after the end of the first year.

There are also certain MBA specialisations and electives which are domain-specific and intend to provide in-depth knowledge about a particular stream of management. The most common specializations are Finance, Sales & Marketing, Logistics & Operations, Human Resource, IT. Most B-schools, however, have a General Management program, wherein the first year is about learning the basics of all the various streams of management. In the second year, the student can choose his specialization and the electives he intends to take.
