    What I mean is that all engineers going for MBA  is waste of engineering degree and resources spent  making them one. Need based is altogether a different matter. That is why MBA should be done after a few years of work experience and developing aptitude for it. The en bloc going for MBA has diluted the importance of the degree. 

    Also I fondly remember the wonderful calenders  Advani & Oerlikon used to print every year. They were a class apart.

    Nowadays a nowadays a graduate degree in engrg has very little scope for future growth, a masters degree combined with an MBA would be the most preferred for most high profile jobs. It also gives the added advantage of having the necessary qualification to start an enterprise of your own..


    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    Could be, but I had a relative working in A&O's Delhi office and therefore got to see many calenders for a few years. But I could not lay my hands on them.

    Experts say presently MBA is an overrated degree. Most colleges struggle with placements. After all  the purpose of education is to provide a livelihood in tune with the student's qualification. Any student will join an educational institute especially B Schools with a hope that his institution will help in Placement in tune with his qualification. In the last decade many Business schools placed MBA students in good positions.

    Presently , the fact is only one student was selected among 15 students recruited by a large firm. This diminishing trend illustrates the rapidly  fading popularity of MBA.

    It also is indicative that economy is not creating enough jobs. These days many investments do not result in large number of jobs. Many call it jobless growth. E commerce can wipe out need for marketing jobs. So MBA's will get affected.

    The MBA institutes should create such a Curriculum that suits the running economy. It's not  happening so in the MBA educational institutions.  And that's the main reason for their failure in Placements.

    MBA is not an automatic route to get jobs. Candidates should have stuff in them to become a real MBA. Not all can do so. Govt cannot guarantee jobs to all MBA;s just because they are MBA's. Other options should also be investigated.

    Education never goes waste,it is always an asset to have a solid educational background,and once you have it , you don't have to restrict yourself to civil services only because some of the private companies offer better opportunities and terms of employment.
