What computer courses can I do other than those offered in BTech? I do not wish to do engineering.
As you may be aware, BTech is a four- year course that generally leads to employment. Some alternatives available to you are Bachelor of Computer Application or Bachelor of Science (IT or CS).These are available in several universities across India. However, you need to also do your Master’s in the same or similar area such as MCA or MBA (IT) to get a good career-break. It would also be useful to decide on your focus area for further studies in software, networking and the like, and plan your courses of study accordingly.
Is it worth doing an MBA in India considering the market scenario these days?
Yes, it is worth doing your MBA. However, I recommend that you first decide why you wish to do an MBA. Further, decide on your intended area of specialisation. Subsequently, prepare well and clear your entrance exams like CAT and CMAT, and get into a good institution. Maintain a consistent academic record and do all your projects and internships seriously. All of the above will ensure that you get a good job. MBA graduates are available in plenty but it is only the competent ones who get good jobs and build a fantastic career for themselves
