If anyone wants to do an MBA and is very sure about it then they should take up commerce in intermediate/class 12th and bba/b.com in graduation. Although anyone can do an MBA after graduation irrespective of the stream, it’s better to take up commerce/maths but it doesn’t matter. Even if you’re from the Arts stream and you want to do an MBA, it’ll be a good choice. If you have graduated in psychology then you can take up MBA in HR and if you have done engineering then you can pursue an MBA in I.T. or operations and so on. So your stream doesn’t matter much but your interest matters. If you’re doing an MBA because the business world interests you then go for it. If anyone is doing an MBA for the sake of a postgraduate degree then you can do it from any stream.
There are many branches of MBA that are offered in Indian universities. Some of the specialisations offered in the universities are:
General Management, Marketing, Finance, Operations, HR, Strategy, Real Estate, Information Management, etc.
In India, the best MBA colleges include IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Calcutta, IIM Kozhikode and IIM Indore according to the MHRD-NIRF rankings 2021. Other popular B-Schools such as XLRI Jamshedpur, MDI Gurgaon, IMI, SPJIMR, IMT, VIT, Fore School of Management and Department of Management Studies of the IITs also rank among top MBA colleges in India as per the NIRF rankings as well as other B-school surveys such as by India Today, Outlook and Business Today.
It really depends on you. Whether which stream to choose or in which college to pursue MBA.
