    Hello,

    Since you are interested in the field of Information Technology, as of now, once you earn the Bachelors you may either head for a Masters in the same and gain in depth knowledge on the same or opt for a word profile and gain fruitful work experience.

    A Masters in IT is recommended if you are interested in core working of the sector. If you are looking for a management profile in the next coming years, then I would recommend you opt for a decent work profile and then opt for a management degree (MBA) in IT or any other specialization that suits your interest. Remember an MBA can be pursued at any point of time irrespective of the academic or professional background.

    In fact, majority of the B-schools back home and abroad require substantial work experience as one of the qualifying criteria. Though you will come across some top notch B-schools without work experience, generally they expect excellent academic records.

    Perhaps the following links should help you with informative details on the degree :

    I hope this helps!

    Take care!

    Hey buddy, all I would say is to go for a work ex and than study for CAT/GMAT depending upon your choice. Since, you already are graduate from IIT you would get additional advantages when you apply for IIM. If you go directly, there are less chances that you get the prefered college, most people have IIM in mind . So, go for work ex, study and crack CAT and meanwhile you also got to earn few bugs.

    Coming from the same place that you did(Did a Btech in IT, love the field, but thought whether to do an MBA immediately or after doing a job first for a bit), I would whole heartedly recommend that you consider doing a job for a a year or two.By all means, give the CAT immediately after your final year, but do this for the experience, and also to find out what your 'ground zero' is in terms of percentile score with minimal to no preperation.

    The few years of work will firstly greatly enhance your perspective on exactly how the IT industry works and what are the major challenges that one would face vis a vis requirement analysis, scheduling , project tracking etc… working as a programmer, you will definetly benefit in seeing how YOUR manager reacts to these challenges and everyday activities … as well as obviously having your own ideas on the roadblocks and impediments in your work and how you would make the entire process better. Taking this forward you would better interact within your MBA lectures in group discussions in having a concrete viewpoint.

    Trust me …ive been there.I realise that this snippet will possibly be a few months too late for you to read and at upon, but I hope it helps others make a better informed decision in the future.

    I would suggest gain some experience in the practical field or what you call it an industry and then go for MBA. I have said so because you can go for MBA at any point of time you wish to. But once you are done with MBA, you become a man of management line. And as you have good interest in computers, then you can't take the enjoyment of your departmental field. Once you feel you are done with your departmental field, you can easily and readily go for MBA. Though the decision depends fully on you. Any ways. ALL THE BEST. Take the right decision whatever it may be. If you want to get some detailed knowledge about it you can visit the blog blog.oureducation.in . I hope there also you may get help.
