Remember, all MBA degrees are not equal: while a rigorous MBA course from a reputed institute can be your passport to a fat-salaried job at India Inc, there are many lowly-rated institutes from where getting even a halfway decent job is a pipe dream.


Accordingly to one of the professors from Mumbai “Enrolling for different MBA courses is the best way for the candidate to learn how to build and mould innovative organizations. It teaches the learners how to go about analyzing management techniques and paves the way for building managerial perspectives. It also elucidates how the economy works within a society.”


So if you are determined to work in these specific sectors and would like to take up managerial positions, sectoral MBAs can be a great choice.


Remember, MBA is not just a degree, much more in fact. It helps you find yourself and the capability within.
